Modify Detail Component Families for Additional Functionality

The Out of the Box “OOTB” Detail Item (Component) Families are missing some features that can really help in a detailing workflow.  Here are a few examples of some improvements we’ve made to a few of the detail item families:

Add Spray Fire Proofing to the Structural Steel Framing Section Detail Components

Create a Vertical Plywood Detail Component

    How can I get this feature for spray fireproofing?

    We achieved it by editing the existing detail component that came OOTB with Revit, we added a filled region for the spray insulation around the original filled region for the steel component. We used a parameter for the Fire Proofing Thickness and a Fire Proofing Radius parameter at the corners (that uses a formula = “Fire Proofing Thickness /2”).
