I found using mass or imported object into mass family is a very useful way to reinforce the native revit modeling. I tried to use mass (some are imported) in family editor to create more custom made baluster, roof, window, etc. However when I drag the loaded mass into family object, I got such message: "None of the created elements are visible in 3D View: View 1 View. You may want to check the active view, its Parameters, and Visibility settings." (please see attached screen catch). If I save this family type and load into project and use it, the mass I put in in family editor is there and become vesible in project (see the second scrren catch image) I believe it must has something to do with visibility/graphics settings in family editor (templete), but cant figure it out. Thanks for any help

NO MATE,

if you want a mass in the family editor, you will need to create a new mass family, no mass in any other family...

Thanks for thr reply. My main purpose of loading other mass in family editor is that I can use object created from other softwares such as FormZ or Microstation to enchance family modeling. So I  the modeling capability will not be limited within Revit (the native revit solid modeling is ok but still has quite a lot limitation for comlex design). But now I find I can directly import DWG into family editor so I can use other software to support my family creation anyway. The only disadvantage of imported objects is it cant be edited parametically.
