i have a query ................I am new to revit and have installed the revit 2014 recently .....i want to know how to load the basic families(eg. duct and pipe fittings and diffusers etc.) in my revit 2014 all together and not 1 by 1? of now i have to load every thing manually 1 at a time ...and the endcaps and the other fitting are not loaded so my ductworks are not complete and there is no automatic connection so the purpose of revit is defeated...i am using the student version of revit mep 2014.
I cant even make a pipe with a 90 degree bend because the fitting is not loaded..and even after loading i have to load it again every time i want a 90 degree bend in a pipe.

You can drag and drop families from your desktop straight into Revit (as long as there isn't an associated type catalog txt file). Most basic fitting families are already loaded in the built-in Mechanical Template file, are you using that?
