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!
I am using archicad 12
Is there any chance I can get some of your families in a Revit 2010 format? I know, I know, it's 8 years old and not supported anymore but, it still works fine for me. I'm looking for a shower stall I can put in a bathroom. You have a few that are very interesting b... Read More
You need to load the file via ArchiCAD's object library manager to the project your working on. If you just try opening the file, it will try to open the GDL object's script, which is password protected by the manufacturer..
The file is for the 24 inch Built-In Wine Preservation Column T24IW800SP. One would assume that the password protection was done in error and the file should be uploaded without it.
Most of our ArchiCAD objects are password protected to avoid errors when the user tries to directly open the object file. You can load object into the project library and use it in the project normally without opening it. You can change the settings through the object interface settings as well.
When loading a door, I expect the RFA to host onto a wall. This is not the case, not does the family create a void where the wall and door intersect. Am I perhaps not understanding this family?

I downloaded (for the first time) an object from your site and when I wanted to open it in ArchiCAD I was asked for a password. I tried the one I used to sign in on your page, but without any success. How does it work?
Hi, this is because you have tried to open the object file's script, which is locked by the manufacturer.. In order to use the archicad object you need to add it to your ArchiCAD project. This can be done by adding it via your archicad library manager. Hope that helps!
Hi! I trying to download your 275 series in ArchiCAD format, and archives with tnem are broken. Pleasem fix them Thanks!
What's the cost implementation going to be like? Basically, what are the pros and cons of using BIM?
Adding one more thought...the aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, and consumer electronics products sectors have been employing sophisticated 3D modeling and simulation systems for design, manufacturing and assembly for years. Its long overdue for the architectural profession to become fluent in BIM technologies, pushing their use to the limi... 6 More Answers

Hi there, I assume you mean for the ArchICAD file? It looks like he script is protected, however just make sure you load it properly then it'll be find. To do this, add the object file to the project via the Library manager, this will then add it to your library or you can try drag and dropping it onto your project floor plan. However if you...
How are IFC files actually used? Are they editable? I've been put in charge of BIM because I have 30 years CAD experience. But the people in charge don't really understand BIM and I'm not getting the training! Anyway, what i want to know is: How if an IFC file ACTUA... Read More
Hey Alan, editting an IFC element doesn't imply meyhem... you can move them around to your hearts content, and if they are composed of a typical archicad object, you can edit to the heart is content. Where you run into trouble is if the object is a particular manufacturers product and you change it, well, it'snot really their product anymore... 8 More Answers
I'm working with vectorwork, but I don't know how to import your appliances (Revit) to my draws using Vector.
You can load object into the project library and use it in the project normally without open it, and you change settings through the object interface settings as well. Hope this could help.
How do I open the GSM file? It asks me for a password, that I cannot find anywhere on your site. Thank you! Stefan.
You can drag and drop an ArchiCAD object file directly to your project floorpan and this will automatically add it to the project! However if you just open it like a file, ArchiCAD will try and "open" the object's script, which in the case of this file is password protected - this is protected so you don't accidentally break somethi... 1 More Answer

Is there a way to link your updated Revit family models with my local Revit library on my PC.
Currently Autodesk Revit does have any native way to pull in updated Revit families. There a few third party plugins, but I haven't come across any that work really well. Most of our users find the direct downloads to Dropbox or Box.com work well as a simple way of keeping their company wide libraries up to date.
A bit tricky but I need to build a railway bridge in Autodesk Revit. Has anyone done this before or know of an easy way or pre-made Revit family?
The question is impossible to answer without knowing more about the design of the bridge. There is almost no such thing as a pre-made bridge (except maybe in the military.) Every bridge is unique. Revit can model almost anything you want from it. I have been using Revit since 2003 and have never found anything it can't do if you put your mind... 14 More Answers
I'm starting to hear a lot of noise from our users about Graphisoft's tablet based BIMx tool?How many people are actively using it and do you find it useful?
I have recently started to involve some my clients with BIMx. And, they love it. At this stage I am using it in the concept stages of the design. When I get the confidence, I'll eventually use it for the final drawings too.

Hi, I'm wondering if I can open BIM files in Cinema 4D. I already tried and it doesn't seem to work. Are they only compatible with Autodesk programs or can I work around this problem some way?Thanks.
The following file formats can support Cinema 4D; DXF, DWG, 3DS, DAE, FBX, DEM, LWS, STL, VRML2, OBJ, COLLADA, Alembic. You can export files to these formats and import into Cinema 4D. Thanks.

I've seen families that do this before, basically they use the same sheet piling element, then a Loop function to keep adding them together. I'll search and see if we have one that hasn't been added to the library yet!
