7.3.2 Adding new Glass Types to Revit

2 minutesread

If any of these new glazing types do not exist already in Revit, they will be added to Revit’s list of Glazing Types using Linc. Applying a type from Linc will change the glazing type assigned to the element in the model and write it to the Revit list of Construction types.

Glass Types which are chosen from the list in Linc but not already in Revit 2018 and 2019, will be updated to the model when Revit is closed and restarted. This allows the database in Revit to be modified and the updated file to be read in the next Revit session. (Revit 2020 will update immediately and does not need to be restarted)

Glass Types which are already in Revit’s internal list, will be substituted immediately for the existing glass type. Once the new Glass Types have been added to Revit’s internal list, they may be swapped out in future without any restart.

New Glass Types that are not in Revit 2018 and 2019 are added after restarting Revit

The results will update after Revit is relaunched. You may apply several Glass Types to different elements and then restart Revit to apply all these changes at once.

Glass Types that are selected from the list in Linc that are already in Revit’s list of Analytical Construction Types, will be applied to the model immediately (the existing Glass Type will be swapped out for the chosen entry).

Revit stores a list of construction types and materials internally in a file. Linc allows this file to be easily edited and updated using a simple interface.

The model should be saved before closing Revit, if new glass types need to be written to Revit. The next time that Revit is launched and FenestraPro is opened, a message will display to remind you to confirm the changes from the previous session. You may choose Yes (the changes will be made to those elements that were selected previously), No (this session of FenestraPro will not use those changes) or Don’t ask me again (pending changes from the previous session will be deleted and you will not be reminded again).
