    Customize Physical and Thermal Assets??

    Well lads, first post here. Hope ye don't mind that its to ask a question!

    I'm currently in the process of creating a library of revit materials for a concrete products company. The problem I'm having is the DOPs (Declatation of Performance) that the company has for its various products are limited in the amount of information that is declared. Generally in Europe the only physical properties that are tested for in concrete products is density and compressive strength. Likewise on the thermal side there is only thermal conductivity declared.

    From what I understand, to add a physical or thermal asset you must duplicate one of the assets from the autodesk library and you can then edit the fields. However the autodesk assets contain far more fields of information than the company is able to declare for legal reasons (as they are not tested) such as Youngs modulus, shear modulus, specific heat, permeability, resistivity. It does not seem to be possible to leave these fields blank or enter "No Performance Declared". Does anyone know of a way to have a custom physical and thermal asset that uses only the information you require? I find it astonishing if this is not possible because certainly in Europe most of the information on the revit assets is not relevant. Any help on this would be much appreciated, I've been scratching my head on it for weeks!

    Cheers, John
