Fabrication Diffuser/Grille to work in Revit
« on: Jan 15, 2020, 07:45:24 PM »
Hello All,
I thought I saw this before, but have not found it yet. Is there a Diffuser/Grille CID that will work in Revit. Currently I am using CID#996 which does not work in Revit. Thanks for the help.
Thanks, Dino

No.

I use a square to round with length = 0 for the diffusers and a straight of 1" long with a 1" flange connector for the grilles and linear diffusers.

It works good enough and it imports into Revit.

I do take them off.
They are on my reports, same as the regular grilles.
With the right service type you can filter anything to go on any report.

We generally use diffuser/grille families and make a schedule for them.  We have a linear diffuser that works in Revit based on CID#382 which you could use and make other grilles.
