Placing a line-based family instance to revit

Hi everyone.

Is there a way to place a custom family instance to revit with rhino inside? I have a lot of facade rods with variable length that have to be placed in revit as “facade-rod” family instances. There seems to be components even for creating a new family type but I can’t find anything for placing an existing type.

Element Type Component will change an existing type.

the guide is really helpful…

The Length Parameter can be modified with Set Parameter Components.


Hi Rickson. But it will only change the type of the elements that already exist in revit. And what I need is to place new ones.


Add component by location. So not lined based but work plane based and your size should be a parameter.

Here i placed two types of unistrut on a sphere and set the length.
