I work for a lighting company and am in the process of creating one of our systems in Revit. (Note: this is the first time I have used Revit)
Q1 = Answered) All the customers I have spoke to with regards to what their requirements are before I start creating family's have said make it Face Hosted. I have looked at the template list and I don’t have a Lighting template that is Face hosted. I have Ceiling Host, Wall Host and No Host. So I downloaded a Philips file and removed there geometry and added mine as their family is lighting and Face hosted. How do I get a lighting fixture template that is face hosted? Have they made this template themselves? Or am I blind?
Q2) For this system a few of the products/options require multiple light sources (IES). How would I go about doing this? From what I have read I would need to nest a family holding the two light sources into this family but my question is can I switch from one light source to two and can I manage there positions e.g. re-size and reposition the centres? Would this just be a matter of adding a visibility parameter to the nested family and create another which has just one light source?
Q3) I think I have attached the file and would be grateful if someone would look at this and comment on whether the way I have done it is OK (best practice) or would there have been a better/easier way of doing this?
