I have a text file from Marvin and a revit family file from marvin.

 

when you open the revit family of the window, only one window size is available as a type, BUT when you open the text file, it lists all kinds of different sizes - here a small sampling....

'CUDH1612,2W,42.75,32.375,DOUBLE HUNG,ALUMINUM CLAD,LOW E II w/argon,2,2,TBDCUDH1614,2W,42.75,36.375,DOUBLE HUNG,ALUMINUM CLAD,LOW E II w/argon,2,2,TBDCUDH1616,2W,42.75,40.375,DOUBLE HUNG,ALUMINUM CLAD,LOW E II w/argon,2,2,TBD'

and there's a header to the text file too:

',Quantity##other##,Width##length##inches,Height##length##inches,Window Type##other##,Frame Type##other##,Glass Type##other##,Number of Lights Wide##other##,Number of Lights High##other##,Design Pressure##other##'

My question is:

Where do I need to put the text file - AND - how to I tell the revit family where it is, so that it can load the other parameters for the different window sizes.

 

Thanks
