    Hahaha... nice to meet you!!!!

    I am going to change my families a little and make use of Type Catalog AND LookupTables instead of just LookupTables.
    Type Catalog can also add more info, that I was going to add by Dynamo, so little less Dynamo needed.

    A little change to my way of work with families!

    Hope I can try it out tonight with one family and see if I can get it in the browser like I want.

    I'll keep you informed.

    thanks!

    Yeahhhh....!!!
    Got it working now.
    I have one type in my family, looking for sizes in LookUp table.
    I have a Type Catalog with the family.

    Works like a charm!

    Thanks.... now I am going to finetune it, so I can use it as a template for the other families.

    You may also like to look at ******** Batch processing families is just one of the many routines in the software. Updating / Replacing / Adding parameters, Updating preview icon, replacing materials, sorting into family categories, and much more is possible. It also does a quality check of the families. Check it out at *******

    Did you really just reanimate a boatload of threads that were old just to pimp your own tools that you sell? That's..... Interesting.

    Always best to assume the worst - what does that say about you?

    Hi Aaron, I see you like to assume the worst about people.

    It had been a while since I had received any notifications from the forum and a recent post brought me back. While I was there I looked at other requests, some pertinent to my product, and some just relevant to API programming. I responded where I felt I had something to contribute, albeit somewhat late, however relevance can last for many years and may help others in the future.

    I'm not saying that this applies to you however making yourself feel good by questioning others motives is one of the cheapest and nastiest aspects we experience on forums. Try and assume the best about peoples motives and as many have said before "If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all".

    Aricke. You should have a look at the Forum Rules before you post on this forum again. Out of 10 posts so far you´ve mentioned your software in 7, API response in another 2, and finally your response above as the last. (Which WILL be your last if you keep up the advertising)

    Have a great day.

    At the compagny I work I took the responsibility to take care of the family management.
    I have been doing some google but would love to here your (revit experts) opinions about it.

    I am searching for a nice tool to manage the different family's we use. It has to be simple for experienced and new users. So the front end has to be real user friendly.

    The two applications I found and looks nice for the job are:
    - Unifi
    - Content Studio

    Anyone in here has some experience with one or both apps?
    Any other sugestions about also good or even better apps?
    @Bogey1977

    Have a look in the FamilyReviser plugin that's free and can be very useful too!

    I wouldn't call it assuming, my friend. More, I thought it was funny. And- while not everyone appreciates my directness- I accept that as a part of life. No hard feelings if you think I'm a jerk.

    People definitely visit threads "in waves" and respond to pertinent threads, which often means if you go to "last replies" or "timeline," it's pretty common to see the last five or six replies all from the same person.

    All five or six of them referring to a product that individual makes or sells, however... Well, I guess we are all free to interpret as we see it. I think you build some great utilities, frankly. I hear all sorts of awesome things about them. But if reanimating a dormant thread that had progressed to technical details about a specific app, just to advertise another app, is your thing, hey... Rock on. Sorry if my commentary offended you, in that case.

    After much testing the top two were Avail and Unifi and we went with Unifi because it's cloud based(as we move to more and more remote users and sharing projects across offices and trying to have a "single source of truth" it won to us. It has analytics for projects and content and has a content creation request system. It also using SSO. Adding Content is crazy easy and it will export views from detail projects (or real projects for you) and catalog them for you(the better your orig. folder/file system the better, but you can easily add additional key words. You can have multiple libraries all made up of the same content. IE if you have a main library where your casework is made from both Casework families and Generic models for example you can create a "casework library" and add content to it. We are just now in the process implementation and roll out. I'll let you know how it goes. It is expensive but we are going to try it for a year. We also got a plug in called P.I.G. which lets you create your thumbnails very easily.
