    Creating footing and column families with required rebar

    I am trying to create a family for footings, columns, piers, reinforced beams, etc. but I can't save the family with the required rebar in them. Currently I create the footing and label the family per the schedule, place the required rebar then copy and paste the footings and rebar where needed. Is it possible to create a family with the rebar so that when I pull up that particular footing/ column etc type, the rebar is already in place? Also are there any families for PT cables in Revit?

    Unless they have quietly made it possible when I wasn't looking...it is not possible to place rebar in a family.

    That seems like an obvious area for improvement. Hopefully this will be in a future update.
