BEAM for Rhino UI
Select Objects in Rhino to start assigning properties. Multiple objects can be assigned to the same families.
All data will be saved in the Rhino Document.
Assign a Family Category
Type the Name of the Family to assign to the selected objects
Extra Custom Parameters have to exist in Revit as Project Parameters in order to be assigned. Extra Parameters can be added with P.
Numerical parameters will use Rhino units when converted to Revit.
Select objects manually or use F to select all objects of a specific Family.
Press BEAM to start exporting.
Number of Selected Objects
Assign Parameters to the Family
This values are unique for each Rhino Object.
Data is visible only in Dynamo.
Assign Object Parameters
Manage Category Parameters
Manage Beam Directory
Select Rhino objects by GUID
BEAM for Revit
Select .beam to be imported
If checked, overrides existing Family Parameters
If checked, imports objects as Loadable Families
If unchecked, imports objects as System Families
Press to start importing.
Import Geometry from Rhino to Revit. Families will be updated each time. System Families will not update and need to be deleted manually.
Some categories will always be imported as System Families:
Walls, Ceilings, Roofs, Floors and Topography.
When Imported in Projects, Beam will create Loadable or System families depending on the options and Categories. Use it to create complex bespoke elements. The elements will be placed matching Rhino Internal origin and Revit Internal origin.
Importing by System families will be faster than using regular Families and can still be scheduled. Useful for panelization geometry with hundreds of elements.
Use Beam in family environment to add extra complex geometry to an existing family or to create repetitive components (eg. furniture). Use it to create special families like face based components and more.

Press to place adaptive components
Select adaptive component family
Select exported .beam objects
URSA for Revit
Place adaptive components using points and polycurve vertices from Rhino.
Create PolyLines with the same amount of vertices as the Adaptive Components' Adaptive Points. Non matching elements in the .beam will be automatically excluded.
