    Strut Hanger Family

    I have made a strut hanger family where everything is adjustable but I want the all-thread extrusion to automatically connect to the structure. I can't figure out a way to do it. I created it on the electrical fixture template.
    I have always used the Revit fabrication hangers but I need more detail (especially for 2 or 3 layer hangers). I know the add-ons like SysQue or eVolve have everything I need but they are not an option as of now.
    So my question is; is there a way to make an extrusion in a family that automatically connects to the structure when placed in the project?

    Try to use MEP Fabrication hangers. They do not interact with design pipes and ducts, but they can be copied, resized without a host and they auto adjust to the floors. Use temporary fabrication pipes / ducts to create hangers of desired size.

    Are you using FabParts in Revit? If so, like already mentioned, I would use FabPart hangers. They function very well actually. The will automatically anchor to structure above although it's not perfect.

    As for your direct question, no there is not a way to make a Family automatically connect to structural above.
