Export Rhino Geometry as Families

Exporting a .beam

Select manually the objects to be exported or use F to quickly select multiple Families. Press BEAM to start exporting.

Name the .beam to recognize it later and for archival purposes.

If left empty, BEAM will create a random code.

Blocks will not be exported with BEAM. To export blocks use BLOCS.

WARNING: Using a name that already exists will overwrite the previous .beam

The .beam will then be saved in the designated .beam directory.

If you are using your local drive remember to periodically clean up the non useful exported .beam to save disk space.

The default local directory will always allow not more than 50 .beam.

In Revit, use BEAM for Revit to import or update Families, URSA to place Adaptive Components.

Not exported geometries

Non valid geometry will not be exported. A dialog will display the elements that where not exported with information about the error. Copy to Clipboard the GUIDs and use S to select these objects.

Selecting not exported or imported Geometry

Copy to Clipboard the log values from either Rhino or Revit and paste them in the dialog using S on the Rhino panel. Press Select to select the objects.

Objects inside blocks will not be selected if the block is not in edit mode.
