AECOsim Building Designer V8i (SS6)
I have just downloaded some doors from google 3D warehouse and I intend to import them into the ABD catalogue. Can someone please guide me on how to go about this since my model does not have a .rfa extension.
I welcome any suggestion/s
RFA is the Revit Family format, the RFA importer is designed only to import these. RFA objects are parametric and carry metadata about the object.
Google warehouse downloads are SketchUp files. These are just geometry, they do not carry any metadata and are not parametric.
a) place the warehouse model as a cell and attach instance data
b) create a compound cell from the warehouse model and add that to the DataGroup
Note SketchUp models are composed of surfaces so look fine in 3D but do not cut well, finding an RFA object from a manufacturer would probably be a better route.
Alternatively you could create a compound cell and add that to the datagroup. This would result in a simple 3D object with 2D representations when cut, this may be all you need? See AECOsim Building Designer - Compound Cells - Non Parametric Doors.
The national BIM Library has a generic revolving door as well as some products from a manufacturer: https://www.nationalbimlibrary.com/Search?searchTerm=revolving&facet=nQJqnQ&page=1
