Hi,
In AutoCAD there are many sites where we can download blocks.
In Revit,can anyone guide me to sites to download Families to use in Revit drawings?

Thanks

I usually go to;

 

www.revitcity.com

 

I don't know if there are any other site. If you click on the resources button at Revitcity you might be able to find more site, not sure.

 

If anyone can think of other sites post them below I don't mind having an alternative when Revitcity doesn't have what I am looking for.

Hi Jeff,

thank you for the link.But I have question: how to download these items? I selected some of them but I could not find a botton to do that. I installed (seekview) but that was only to view the item.

How can I dowenload them?

 

Thanks

I think you need to create an account first, log on, and then the download options will be available.

Once you find the item you want to download click the RFA icon for the entry.  RFA files are family files.

Once you click the family link then place a check mark next to the specific files you want to download.  in many cases there will be more than one RFA file.  Once you place the check mark then click the download button at the upper portion of the page.

I don't think you need an account to download, it just makes it easier. (Less "nag" screens)

 

Edit:  And if you have an account to post to this forum you can use the same logon/account at Autodesk Seek.  :smileyhappy:

I see. True. I just tried to download a chair without logging on, and it worked. Thanks.
