    Accessing structural material information in a family

    Is there a way in which to incorporate the strengths from material in to the related family in order to access them for connection design?

    Accessing structural material information in a family-strengths-revit-material.jpg

    The idea is to be able to use a lookup table in order to calculate the number of bolts required for a simple connection. (Material can not be part of a lookup table? I think it's only dims and number that are accepted?)

    The lookup will be part of the family and operate as (Table, "Shear", Min possible value, Material strength, Bolt size, Web thickness)

    Then in dynamo I will set up a graph to simply state a number of bolts required for each simple end connection and place this information in the model, from calculated shears and tensions.

    I believe this should work reasonably well, again I am open to suggestions/improvements/why don't you just...

    I'll assume through lack of response that this is not possible and it will have to be user entry.

    Cheers.
