       Revit Add-in:

  • Got to: Revit Ribbon -> Add-Ins -> MKS 

BEAM


Rhinoceros Add-in:

  • ​Click on the options wheel in the Property panel

  • Select BEAM

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.

Beam!

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

These values are unique for each Rhino Object.

Data is visible only in Dynamo.

Assign Object Parameters

Manage Category Parameters

Manage Beam Directory

Family Browser

Select Rhino objects by GUID

BEAM for Revit 

Manage Beam Directory

Import Geometry from Rhino to Revit.

Families will be updated each time.

Select .beam to be imported

If checked, overrides existing Family Parameters

Imports objects as Loadable Families

or imports objects as System Components (DirectShape)

Refresh System Components (DirectShape)

Press to start importing.

Some categories will always be imported as System Components (DirectShape):

Walls, Ceilings, Roofs, Floors, Stairs and Topography.

When Imported in Projects, Beam will create Loadable Families or System Components 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.

Beam in Project Environment

Beam in Family Environment

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.
