How do I access a specific type within a family to plug into a component?

I think this is simple, but I cannot figure it out. I would like to model a floor. So how do I access a specific type of floor assembly that I’ve created in Revit in order to plug it into the “Add Floor” component? Once I figure this out for a floor, I assume I can repeat the process for windows, walls, etc.

Query Types is the component you are looking for.

It takes a few different inputs but the one I like is to Search the Built-In Categories component to Filter by Category, Then use Value Picker to pick the Type.

Built-In-Category Search


Was the “Model Categories Picker” component removed?

Yup, The Built-In Categories is an upgrade.
