We’ve been trying to achieve a way to implement a raised access floor (RAF) into a Revit model. Our requirements are to be able to view a 600x600 panel grid, whilst also being able to move all furniture when the grid moves. We know you can assign the 600x600 pattern to a standard floor, but when the grid is moved, furniture will not move along with the grid; unless each family has been locked to a specific line. Locking hundreds of furniture to individual lines is a task nobody wants to do.  We want to be able to simply load families into a project and when the setting out grid moves, the furniture moves with it.We’ve come up with a method of creating a concept ceiling (with a 600x600 square pattern), which is moved down to finish floor level, so in essence we are treating the ceiling as a floor. All required families, such as tables, have either been loaded or created in a new 'Metric Generic Model Ceiling Based' family, giving the newly created family the properties of a ceiling based element. This allows the families to move when the grid is moved; meaning the task of locking every family to a specific grid line is no longer required.But at the end of the day, we are still ‘cheating’ Revit, as our floor is in fact a ceiling. Has anyone else come across a better solution?

I'm lost.... Do you mean you move the model pattern, not the floor?  


Why don't you just group all the furniture?
