    Family by Hummingbird

    Hi all,
    I am quite new to revit.
    I am having an issue could be quite basic hope someone can guide me to a right direction.
    Now I have a lot of walkway models were created in rhino and I have pushed them into revit using hummingbird. But then I found that the walkways cannot be used as common floor family to apply a balustrade family on it. Therefore I have to use the imported walkway as a reference to rebuild the walkways again in revit to generate balustrade.
    It is a lot of pain...
    Does anyone have similar issue before and what is the best way to do it?
    Appreciate for any suggestion,


    Jack

    Hi Jack, welcome the forum! :thumbsup:


    Allow me to be the first to jump in and forewarn you early on... You're not making a Revit family, you're making a ticking timebomb.

    Whilst Hummingbird might translate Rhino to Revit soundly (I've never played with the workflow) - as you're clearly noting, how Revit accepts what Hummingbird squirreled into it is another matter?

    But before we get ahead of ourselves, can we get a screenshot of what we're talking about? It'd help with responses...

      On the left in green is a sloped floor that I made in Revit - as you can see, the balustrade family hosts to it normally.
      On the right is a simple Adaptive Family that I pushed to Revit from Rhino using the AdapComps Hummingbird node - it can't host to it (it won't even let me select it!)

      Through Googling I found multiple tutorials detailing how to creating a new railing family using Adaptive Components, but not creating adaptive floors to work with basic railing families

      Thanks in advance!

        Sorry for the delay to return Jack - and sorry in advance for not-so-helpful response I'm about to add...

        You don't need Rhino, Hummingbird or Adaptive Components to make that railing in Revit.
