    Does anyone know how i can find tables with number of chairs?

    Hi everyone , the library of RAC 2011 is well but i can not find one with controlling number of chairs.

    I would suggest to make you own. If you have the table and chairs family, it is really simple to nest the chair into the table family and set the formula with Array. (Of course, you have to know how the basic family editor works)
    I have seen some families from Revitcity that are doing just that already, go and take a look again.

          Takes a bit of work if you want the # of chairs to be parametric, and the radius of the table to be parametric. Nested families, and a few constraints, to do it. Its a good learning exercise.

            This is the one that comes with revit, Basically you just add an array and place the parameter by selecting the array number.

                I have been playing with arrays in a family (for a kitchen setup) and it is not that hard and once you learn how to do it in a simple family (like your table) you can apply it to more complex stuff. I have learned that building your own stuff from sketch (while looking at pre-build stuff when you get stuck) is the best way to learn, even if it may take some time in the beginning.

                You can even do very cool stuff like putting an IF in there, like IF table is < 600 just use 1 chair IF table is > 600 and < 1200 use 2 chair etc. sure it takes some nice formula, but it is pretty fun to build

                  well thanks all of you , i am planning to do it with sharing it if i finished , but is there a corner in forum (like depository) where every member when he/she made custom furniture they can share it , that will be useful a lot.
                  also it 's strange is it right that revit city is no longer work (just commenting on nice comment blowz )

                    I guess you can post your table here when it is done, would be nice to see what you made of it, might give it a go when I get home to, to see what I can come up with.

                    Revitcity still works for me.
