    Steel columns and beam families

    Hi everyone.

    I'm new to the use of Revit, and I'm trying to model an industrial steel structure. I've noticed that the number of families available are too small for my needs. I was wondering if there are links to download different families of pillars and beans sections.

    Thanks for the answers!

    my Revit 2017 OOTB structural families number well over 300. Do you need more than that or is it some sort of specialty families that you are looking for?

    OOTB families are found here: C:/ProgramData/Autodesk/RVT<version>/US Imperial or Metric

    pretty much anything you will get out of a factory (ie hot or cold rolled sections) will be in the OOTB content for your region. If you are talking about specially fabricated columns welding flat plates together (as I have seen done in some industrial buildings) then you are going to have to get creative and modify some existing OOTB content to suit your Sizes.
