Hi, 

I'm looking for some places where I can get the components of lighting fixtures esp. pendant lights like those on ylighting.com...I can't find modern lamps anywhere...

I think you would have to give a shot at creating these yourself since they are pretty specific/unique.  The first pic you have posted would be fairly simple to create using a revolve, the second pic would be pretty trick though.  You could look at the downloads on this site under light or modern light to see if theres anything helpful for you.

You will probably have to build every specialty light you use.  Really think twice about building them all to really work.  Sometimes that is not necessary.

once you become comfortable with family creation, it's quite easy to make anything you want.  ESPECIALLY if it's a specific light fixture, and not something that has to be parametric.  It's just a collection of sweeps, extrusions, voids, and such.   It's easy and fun.

 

Adding parameters to families so that they're flexible is difficult to learn--it's a steep learning curve.  But it's not essential if you know what you want and flexibility is not an issue.  So don't let formulas and stuff daunt you.  There are lots of family-creation guides to follow, and existing threads, as well.

Recommend only model lights that are manufactured. Many manufacturer's now have some type of model. Custom making special light fixtures is expensive. You will get push back from the builder. Some lights on 3D warehouse. I find a lot of my lights through Architectural Lighting Magazine.

One question: Do you have those objects in RFA so we can use in our projects in Revit or just puting advertising?
