Another example of the work our clever chaps in Sustainable Energy are producing in Revit.

I ( with help ) have created some Angle section columns and these can be found in the normal place masterdocs\CAD\Revit\Waterman Library\Families\Columns and are called W_COL_EA.rfa ( for equal angles ) and W_COL_UEA.rfa ( for unequal angles ).
I have been asked this a couple of times recently.
There are people out there that like to show steel beams in coarse mode ( single lines ), but, when they do the fill ( hatch to us old draughtsman ) in core walls doesn't display.
This is easily remedied.
Select the wall and go to its element properties --> Edit/New and under Graphics you will see Coarse Scale Fill Pattern. Select this via the three little dots and choose the desired fill pattern.

- Never Work in the Central File
- Save often! Both locally and to Central
- Always relinquish all borrowed elements and Worksets before leaving work for any extended period of time ie Going to lunch, going home, going on holiday etc.
- Recreate your Local file regularly. You can create it as often as you like, but do it at least once a week.
