At Metalumen we pride ourselves on our commitment to quality and service to our loyal customers, designers, and specifiers. Because we want to make your job as simple as possible, we are pleased to announce the availability of Revit Families for our entire product catalog.
Whether it’s any one of our wide array of indirect, direct, or indirect/direct models, in any mounting type with any lamping, we’ve got you covered! All of our new Revit Family offerings come with the complete options available to you in the product catalog.
To utilize Metalumen’s lighting, simply select the file or files to be downloaded from BIMsmith Market. Load the family into your project through the “Component” button under the “Architecture” tab on the ribbon along the top of the Revit interface; click the “Load Family” button, then navigate to the folder where the Revit Family from BIMsmith Market was saved, click, and open. A type catalog will appear; select the desired versions and click “OK.” Place the new Revit Family in a ceiling or on a wall where appropriate depending upon the fixture type.
Each of our Revit Families comes premade with all the electrical parameters available to you in the catalog built into the model itself. But we’ve gone above and beyond and also included an unprecedented level of technical information, including accurate IES files in each model; which means the same photometric performance you’ve come to expect from our products will be right there in the Revit Family. This translates into, not just photo-realistic renderings, but real-world accurate lighting within them, ensuring what you and your client see is what you’ll get.
Further, Metalumen Revit content is built to have type catalogs in order to simplify your life and your larger models. But lastly, we’ve optimized this content on a detail-dependent basis. So whether your drawing scale requires coarse, medium, or fine detail, our Revit Families are ready for you.
All this built-in data at your fingertips means your models will have all the information necessary to utilize the power of Revit through scheduling, making equipment lists, installation requirements, estimated costs, and energy information just a click away.
At Metalumen we are always striving to make your workflow as a designer more efficient, saving you time and money, by offering you smarter content for your drawings.
