Hi Tania, yes that makes sense. Not every product on Modlar has BIM/CAD files. If you are looking for those files specifically, you can do a search (even just a blank search) and tick the file type you want in the 'Formats' filter on the left hand side. That way you will only see products that have the file you need. 2 More Answers

After loading the family, you can add a reference plane for the element to host to, which I think this is the quickest solution. According to a revit forum search, you can load your family in a new hosted template and then lin... 2 More Answers

Hi Henrique, unfortunately this manufacturer does not have any BIM/CAD files.
