    Revit, AutoCAD, Archicad, Sketchup, Pro Engineer and about every other CAD program out there.

    a.) This is a Revit forum, not AutoCAD
    b.) you need to be a LOT more descriptive of what you're trying to accomplish.

    To be fair, he has been lurking, so may want to do it in Revit ? Or the building he's got to put his conveyors into might have been modelled in Revit ?

    Pretty sure there is nothing standard in any CAD program for this. So your best bet is to go look at the manufacturer to see if they have any files you can use. If not, than search the web or make them them yourself.

    Robin, my curiosity was piqued . . .

    So this firm does their conveyor blocks in Autodesk Inventor:

    https://www.upmconveyors.co.uk/3d-cad-design-software/

    and here:

    https://www.conveyorsystemsltd.co.uk/3d-cad.htm

    But these guys in the UK will even share their CAD blocks for their products upon request:

    Request for Drawing Blocks - Conveyor Units

    And they have an interesting line-up of modelled conveyor products:

    http://www.conveyor-units.co.uk/wp-c...Amended_AW.pdf

    Which made me think there may be a market for someone to model / convert this stuff into Revit if production engineers need to model this stuff within Revit-modelled buildings . . . hmmm. I wonder whether MEP duct families [with the bends, width variations, etc., etc., could be adapted to work for conveyors . . .

    You should not say that kind of stuff too me, now I really want to try that
    But as I have no idea about conveyers or have any use for them I think I'll let somebody else do that.

    They probably ask for a lightweight sat file (or in DWG). If they are Bim savvy an ifc export from your Revit
