Can anyone help find/provide an Mvblock of a utility/power pole or anything close so that I dont have to recreate one??

 

I cant believe that there isnt one standard with the rest of the mvblocks provided.

 

Thank you all in advance.

Just create a cylinder if you want the basic pole, now if you want more that depends on what type of framing and number of conductors and grounding units. There is roughly 150 different configurations in my old library.

Thanks for your reply.

 

I really need just a bit more than a cylinder so that it is clear what it is in a BIM model

To expand on that, I could really use the pole with a couple of horizontal crossbars at the top. Looks like I may just have to make it.

I found this by searching from Design Center.

Looks like that one requires revit to convert. You can download a free trial to convert it. This one looks nice in 3DS format (which can be imported) but cost money.
