Easiest way to change families from imperial to metric

209 Views, 2 Replies

I have some families that I couldn't find the metric version of them and they are all imperial

what's the quickest way to make them metric? 

I don't want to go to project units and change every single unit one by one in the family file and then load it to project

 

Cheers,

M

I've done some searching and I have not been successful in finding anything. For the most part, it shouldn't matter too much because the Family will be loaded correctly into a Metric Project anyway, regardless of the Family's Units settings because Revit uses its own internal values for length. If you still need to find a way to convert the Units en masse, then I suggest asking if this is possible on the Revit API board.

Thanks mate,

 

will do..

 

It is a real pain when I want to change the parameters value in my Revit model when they are all imperial and all my calculations are metric.

 

Cheers,
