Hi there, Looking at the documentation that can be located for free download on the right hand side on the product page, the manufacturer has said "Straight, L-shaped, and U-shaped Countertops and Sinks are designed to accommodate the Architect's or owner's plans." Looks like they can be custom made to the size you would like. Hope that helps...

I've just download a file called "THEEW-EDNA" which is a chair 3D model, via your website. When I open the .gsm downloaded, it asks me a password. Can you give me it please? Thanks,

Scott, Architect

Hi Marion, that normally happens when you try and open the ArchiCAD GSM file directly, as the manufacture protects the script (so you can't edit the chair's form). To use it please add it to your product via ArchiCAD's library manager.

Zip files instead of single

Elmer, Architectural Draftsperson • 2017

I downloaded my first 2 files a bit ago. They were zip files not single files. Is there any way to download a single since Revit will only open a single? I'm new at Revit and maybe someone has a better way to work with this situation? Thanks!

Elmer, Architectural Draftsperson

Scott, It was the Bosch appliances. I got the zip part. I use them all the time but I had to open the zip twice to get to the single Revit file that Revit needed. Seems like some items are double/triple wrapped. Thanks for the follow up. 1 More Answer
