    Revit 2020 Truss Material Change

    Hi All, in Revit 2020 the Structural Truss material is UB-Universal Beams:UB305x165x40. I was looking to change this to be an angle iron type. I could then use this in a barn conversion project.
    However, there doesn't seem to be a way of changeing the truss material in any of the settings and i have not been able to create a new family for one I have attached a pic of what i am trying to create and would welcome any help or links to a source or even a family of the type i show.
    Hope you help

    You need to load the angle framing type into the project (from the Structural Framing folder). Then you can change the Structural Framing types for the different truss members.

    When I was testing these instructions, I also had to follow the last bit of advice in this web post: https://aectechtalk.wordpress.com/20...bers-in-revit/
