Rotate link revit family to asset

  • Hello


    We are trying out the new link revit family to asset fuction. However some of the enscape asset appears rotated compared to the revit family.

    Is there a way to rotate the enscape asset in relation to the Revit family?

    Not yet currently - I can file it as a feature request though, so thank you for the feedback. :)

  • Great. This is a really neat feature. However when the enscape object is not correctly aligned with the revit familiy the feature is unusable.


    An ability to scale the enscape asset in X/Y/Z direction would also be welcome. Most Revit families can be parametrically adjusted, however this will match poorly with the enscape asset if the dimensions are off.

    Your additional feedback will be forwarded, thank you! ;)

  • +1, on more options reagarding rotation and scaling. Would help gratly manage Enscape assets.

    This is currently a feature which is under review, I'm also forwarding your upvote to the topic to show the further demand for this!

    There's some general best practices but there are no strictly defined and agreed upon standards for rotation and origin of a Revit family. So it's impossible for the Enscape asset creation team to correctly predict the origin and rotation of Revit families. Nor is the feature presently unusable. You have two options:

    01) Open your Revit family and rotate / locate to align with the Enscape Asset

    02) Nest and Share your family into another family and assign parameters that control the origin and rotation of the nested family. Sharing the nested family allows you to modify parameters of the Shared Family.

    Yes this is another step and inconvenient. No it's not unusable. The Enscape is busting ass creating software for an industry with a multitude of idiosyncratic standards.
