    Australia Structure Family

    Good day everyone! My first post in this forum after lurking for 2 weeks

    Just had revit 2 weeks ago as a student.

    But I can't find any revit Australian families around?

    I am looking to populate my database, with as much Australian Families as possible.

    Does anyone know where I can get them? Australian sections aren't that popular I suppose....because google yielded no results for me.

    Cheers all!

    The OOTB content provides a decent array of standard section sizes - what else are you looking for?

    What is this OOTB you speak of?

    Hi there, welcome to the forum! OOTB means "Out of the Box", again meaning any content that was included in your first install of Revit. Much of it it is functional but any refinement is usually easiest done by making a new family.

    There is no one stop shop as far as I'm concerned, I took the longer road of making all of my content from scratch. Mostly for standardizing, quality control and for shared parameters. But I learnt a lot too.

    If you could be more specific about what you want I'm sure someone here can help. I'm a mechanical guy myself so I don't think my content would be of much use to you.

    Thanks for the acronym! Unfortunately when I installed my student version, there was no option for OOTB downloads?

    I'm more interested in UB, tilt up concrete panels, and hollow cores.

    Any recommended sites to learn up on creating parametric families?

    Have you looked at BIM Content Catalogue | Autodesk Seek - they even have a filter for Oceania.
