CABLE BASKET

Can we please have some cable basket families.

 

Just had engineers complaining we dont have any.

 

Containment is quite limited in 2013, is better than 2011 obviously but still a ways to go.

 

Just using tray and calling it basket is not good enough, basket has curved bends and a wire mesh not 45 angled bends and not metal plate.

You may have to model them and create the Families yourself. If needed, perhaps this Revit MEP Families Guide may help.

Try searching on Autodesk Seek or visiting a manufacturer's website and see if they have any Revit families for download.
