I have taken the liberty of creaing a 3 minute video (above) on a little discovery I found on Steve Staffords - REVIT OpEd blog.
This discovery is the USG Design Studio for REVIT content web site. It's free, it's cool, it's real and it's ready to be used.
You can search for wall assemblies by fire and sound rating or you can simply browse the wall types. We have all been waiting / hoping to see these REVIT content sites show up and guess what....they're HERE !
You can even build a wall type right on the web site for download. I have not tried that yet but I will.
Below are the wall types I downloaded in the form of a REVIT *.RTE template file. Then I opened that file and 'cut and pasted' the USG wall types into my project using the 'project browser'. And as we already know......with the walls come all the 'materials', right !
I have to say it .... USG Rocks !
