    Steel sections detail items

    I can find the standard 3D families for beams, angles etc but does Revit have these in 2D detail items?

    As detail items in the UK library they are here:

    Code:
     C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RVT 2019\Libraries\UK\Detail Items\G - Structural-Carcassing Metal-Timber\G10 - Structural Steel Framing
    You can also find them as profiles here:

    Code:
     C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RVT 2019\Libraries\UK\Profiles\Framing\Steel
    In different language libraries or in different revit version you can find them similar places.

    Also, when you pick the Insert tab, Load family button, the search dialog box appears. On the Left (usually) it will show your drives & such. There's two folders by default there. One is labelled Libraries which is mapped to the modeling objects (3D) & the other is labelled Details which is where your 2D items are located. Mind you these are the OotB items, if you have a more custom family (either downloaded or created) you'll have to go find where you put it ... Can't help you there. ;-)
