    Question Revit 2013 Macro's for loading families?

    Hi,

    I have started researching about revit macros and I was wondering if it is possible to create a macro that will automatically load multiple selected families from different locations? (Document level macro) What is the correct coding etc.?

    Cheers

    I would head over to the Boost Your Bim site and have a read. I don't know if he has something that does that particular job or not but there is a TON of good info.

    I am definitely interested in this currently as well. Our project template is ballooning with all the content the different disciplines in our office want pre-loaded. Did you find any information about this yet?

    What we used to do is have a project that was project specific that we could go to for specific details, wall types and settings that we could just transfer project standards.

    We have that same setup but it is only for details. The families (ie pipe fittings and accessories) do not transfer over through project standards so we just have them preloaded into the template. My hope is to strip that content out of the template and have separate batch files or macros we could run that would go out and grab the specific families that we detail out in the batch file or macro for the type of project we are creating.

    If you have an iPad, there is a great app called Actions.. you sync to your computer over the wifi, and set up macros (which i've used to load specific families, i'm sure you can modify to do multiple families) then you create buttons on your ipad and it becomes a single click to run the macro. Not always useful, but in situations like these i think they are.
    Actions - Play your workflow
