    Any I-Beam family?

    Hi,
    Anyone has created I-beam family?
    So far, I'm going to use different types of UB/UC (I-Beam/Column) in my project.
    thanks.

    I think you want to use the "WF" families. You can find these families in the OOTB libraries. The term I-Beam is common phrase for Wide Flange framing members.

    Hope this helps.

      Thanks for saying that Alex. One of my pet peaves. There is no such thing as an I beam. :laugh: And people, quit calling it a hot water heater. If it was already hot water, you wouldn't need a heater. It's a water heater. :laugh:

        ... what if it was a lower case i-beam not an I-beam. Although I do use the letter L for angle symbols.

        ...and yet 1/2 the plans i see have it HWH LOL. My wife even asked me what HWH was.

          Same here. L for angle, but just because it looks like the angle symbol. And I call my beams out by what they are, like W16x26. Not i beam 16x26. :laugh:

            I dont call out my beam sizes. I tag them and thus have no need to input any information.

              Well, yeah. Same here in Revit. But when I did call them out manually, that's what I did.

                OOTB libraries?

                Dear Alex,
                Could you explain me more about what the OOTB libraries means?
                I'm really quite new in using Revit.
                Any videos or links you can recommend and share?

                Anyway, thanks a lot for your reply.

                  I imagine Alex will be ok with me jumping in here...OOTB...."Out Of The Box" libraries Revit installs by default.
                  Goto "Load Family"....browse to what you need.
                  Note Wide Flange members appear in both Structural Columns and Structural Framing (beams)

                  Wow....answered a question....I'm always ASKING them!
