Revit Content Review: Lindab Gutters and Downspouts

Henrik Bengtsson is the Development Manager at the Swedish company Lindab. He just posted an update on some content I have looked at previously but not posted on.

  • BTW, speaking of Sweden, my City has a "sister city" relationship with Växjö Sweden, so my family made a point of visiting when we were in the region for the BILT-Eur 2017 conference in Denmark. Click here for more about the "sister city" relationship: Duluth Sister Cities International.

LinkedIn Post: The next generation of BIM objects for Lindab Rainwater Systems is now available for Revit.

I will share a quick overview of this content... and while the rainwater system, design wise, is specific to the European market, it is good content and could certainly be used (and even modified) in other regions.

To start, here are a few Enscape generated images of the content...
used in a Revit model. FYI, this model is from my Residential Design using Autodesk Revit 2018 textbook.





In Revit, the content has several options for the bottom "Shoe" option as well as vertical length and roof overhang. This is a face based family which is meant to be hosed on the fascia or a reference plane.

There are also end-cap and inner/outer corner options for the gutters. These are line based families.

The content has type catalog to help manage all the options...


Here are a few more Enscape images...




This content also has a nice user guide explaining all the options and providing step-by-step instructions on how the content is intended to work.

There are other Revit families you may want to check out as well.
