Large slatted ceilings left your Revit model dragging? Hold that computer upgrade for a moment and try our ceiling family first! It is:
Optimised for performance: It’s no secret that in the Revit world, externally loaded families use workstations’ resources most efficiently. We put aside performance hogs like in-place components and divided mass surfaces to simply give you the best!
Built for all levels of detail: Why show full 3D slats in ceiling plans in Coarse and Medium levels of detail? We have reserved these for the Fine detail level and only show a generic plane with a surface pattern to represent slats in 2D. Of course, you can change it if required.
Fully parametric: Flex slat spacing as well as slats’ material, profile width and profile height to your heart’s content!
Tried & tested: We BIM Managers and Architects have used it for our humongous projects and couldn’t break it ourselves!
Lean & clean: All redundant constraints, construction geometries, and subcategories cleaned up or never existed!
User Instruction included: Complete Revit newbies can simply watch the clip right on top of this page and begin using this family right away!
Easily upgradeable:Built in Revit 2012, ready for Revit 2013 and later.
Dedicated support: If you somehow manage to break the family, reach us at email@example.com and we’ll be delighted to help.
Ceilings. Your ceiling-based families will love it!
2012 and later.
– Slat width, height, length and material – Spacing or the width of gaps between slats
Family & type names
Generic, can be renamed to suit your company’s standards.
Level of detail
– At Coarse and Medium: A 3D generic panel with overall dimensions of the ceiling will show. The panel’s surface pattern will and can be customised, especially if Spacing changes, to represent slats in 2D views efficiently. This is to increase generation and working speed in views such as reflected ceiling plans.
– At Fine: Individual slats in your chosen material will show and be ready for perspective views and renderings.
