Revit Family downloads- Glazed Aluminum Curtain Wall Systems

Repost: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Do-U-Revit/~3/JQHHSWiLH6o/spooky-spiders.html

RevitLandia together with C.G.C. Tec, an Italian company specializing in glazed aluminum curtain wall systems, have released free Revit families of their products. They can be downloaded from here. You need to register for a free account before doing so.


Then you’ll be asked to fill in your name, last name, email address, re-enter the email address, password, re-enter the password and then scroll all the way down to the bottom to check the typical checkbox to accept the privacy policy. Finally click “Prosegui” (Proceed) to finish up registration. You’ll get an email confirmation with a link to activate your account.

At some point you’ll get to the download screen, where you’ll find a PDF tutorial (one in Italian and one in English), a video that shows how to put a system together (no audio or subtitles; also shows you how to schedule components), and a Revit project file containing all the bits and pieces – curtain walls, glazing, sealants, spider connectors and structural supports.

The system was put together very nicely. You have to model the glazing separate from the structural support system. This was done to circumvent the limitation posed by custom panels, which can only be rectangular. Hopefully you can still understand how to use it even though parameter names are in Italian. Spooky!
