I had to setup scripts for Square throat elbows that I use in CAMduct.  You could of course create a custom grouping of elbows such as "Square throat w/Vanes" and "Square throat Without Vanes".  This would be a fairly simple solution.

You could add an elbow with Airturns turned off and locked to your service.  Then once an elbow was in place you could use the family drop down menu in the properties box to swap between the 2 types of elbows.  As far as just getting to the Airturns options I don't think it is possible yet.  Maybe someone has a dynamo trick to make it work.

You cant do it. We went with the "" - No vanes, No Splitters option. None of the pattern options are available in Revit. Mitred Throat, vs radius throat etc.

Thanks,
Airturns in Revit are Spec driven. Set them up in your Spec and they will get added.

Here is how I would do it by adding a new elbow part to a service with Airturns turned off.

Crazy isn't it?  The more I work in Revit, the more I realize how much functionality we lost.

Super Crazy! I'm teaching a guy and have small revit job so cut him loose on it, I just tried coping the database and over writing what he was using in Revit but because he has Items already in from old DB, Revit wont read the new DB even thou GUI's match!  >:(

UPDATE:

To get other system running with the Changed Database, I exportsys from Changed Importsys to other system and RELOAD Configuration.

Most probably already know and have done it but if not thats the trick
