    How to move furnitures up in Z axis?

    Hi, when i place in revit families - the auditorium chairs, i cant seem to change its height. I cant move it up in the Z axis. Is there a way to move it up? Thanks in advance!

    They are probably floor based and need to be on a floor. You can change it so it is not floor based, but can't remember where from the top of my head, and I don't have a computer handy right now.

      normally you can change a family offset from the level

      cn you do a screen grab of the fmily properties and what properties are avaiable if you click edit?

      if there are not parameters in there then it might be worth editing the family to pop in a reference plane that you can control with a height parmater.

                Some parameters don't reveal themselves until they are placed in the project....

                  Open the furniture family, and make sure "workplane based" is either checked or unchecked, depending on whether or not you need the family to be "hosted" by a workplane ( such as a Level, which is most common. ) In the auditorium example, the tiered floors can sometimes be modeled using offsets from a particular Level,
                  which may cause the furniture families to seem as if they cannot be "moved" up/down in the "Z" direction.

                  hope this helps
