Adding Fire Proofing to CONVERT3DMODEL items
« on: Sep 15, 2018, 01:53:23 PM »
I've converted some steel from a Revit model and converted it in Fabrication using CONVERT3DMODEL.
I tried to add a fire proofing thickness to it and it wouldn't take.
I can add it to a regular steel item and it shows.
Did a search and didn't see anything.
Any ideas?

Convert the steel as 3d solid out of Revit. Then use the solidedit, body, shell command.

You have to use a lisp to run the solidedit command on all of the items at once or else you would have to do each item at a time.

Edit the family in revit and add the fireproofing as a subobject. You'll be able to control on and off than.
