Does anybody know how to load multiple families into Revit Project File in 1 shot (ie together) without having to open each individual familiy in order to load?

I want to try to avoid copying families as Revit creates duplicates when I try to do that.

FYI, my existing families are in a project template file.

Hi Yilin,

The way I did was, place the families in one project, for example 5 door families, then copy and paste onto another project at once. Is that what are you looking for?

Hi David,

 

Thank you for your suggestion.  I was trying to avoid doing that, as sometimes Revit tends to duplicate existing families that have the same name.  I was hoping there was a command in Revit that can allow me to import/load families all at once without having to do the copy short cut but I guess that is wishful thinking :p

Hi Yiling,

"Revit tends to duplicate existing families that have the same name", did you mean that

Famiies......

    ....... Doors

        ..........Single-Flush

              ...........Single-Flush ?

I always change the second "Single-Flush" with the size of the door like "36"x 82""; the first "Single-Flash" is the name of the family, the second "Single-Flash" which I changed to "36"x84"" is the Type. I think that you should always rename it. They are several reasons to do so, firstly, the "Type" is a very useful field, which can be shown in schedules, secondly, when you are using copy and paste as in previous thread, the "36"x84"" door will bring in both "Single-Flash" family, and "36"x84"" type into new project. To me, it is a good practice to spend extra couple seconds to re-name the type, which can help you organize your project better.
