How to Add Bradley Product Revit Material Catalogs to Project

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 17, 2017 4:40:00 PM

Bradley has created custom Revit Material Catalogs for all materials specific for Bradley products.

Bradley Revit Material Catalogs can be downloaded for

A link to Bradley Revit Materials is found on the Bradley Bradley BIM-Revit Library Page in the right margin.

    

All materials use a naming convention that is consistent with materials already supplied in Revit.

Bradley Revit Material Catalogs are unique as material definitions are attached to individual "Chips" in a Revit Project file (*.rvt) file (shown above).

A Revit user can copy a material chip(s) from the Material Project File and paste it into their Revit Project File. When the chip is pasted into their project; it carries the material definition into the project. Just delete the chip and the material definition remains in the project.

  1. find and select the Bradley product family in the project,
  2. select the material parameter in the Property Browser and
  3. select the added Bradley Material in the project Material Browser dialogue box.

This copy-paste process avoids using  the 'Transfer Project Standards' dialogue box; that would transfer ALL the materials into the client Revit project. This keeps the project file smaller; while keeping the Project Material Library clean from unwanted \ unused materials.

When you download our Material Catalogs, you will receive them as separate .zip files.

Inside the downloaded .zip files  is a Revit Material Project file (*.rvt ) and the corresponding material .jpg image files; that are Bradley materials. The material .jpg files are required for the Revit rendering process.

  1. Copy all the .jpg image files into a Bradley folder in your firm's Manufacturer Material Library folder.  
  2. Add this new folder to the 'folder search path' that Revit Rendering searches to find material image files.
  3. In the Revit Options Dialogue box, select Rendering tab in the left margin.
  4. Select the 'plus + symbol' to add the new directory.
  5. The icon with dots " ...  "appears in the right.
  6. Select the dots to browse to and select the Bradley material folder that was added.
  7. Revit will now automatically search this folder list for materials, when rendering a view.

Bradley Corporation creator of the Bradley 1000+ Revit Family Library begins it's 5th year with the e-SPECS Building Product Manufacturer (BPM) Program on April 1, 2016.

Bradley specifications debuted in e-SPECS starting with the June 2012 Update to e-SPECS subscribers. 

e-SPECS for Revit automates the process of creating specification documents integrated with Autodesk Revit-based applications. e-SPECS for Revit includes the e-SPECS Binding Manager to link Revit families to your specification master automatically. This includes filtering the sections based on the families and parameters in the BIM Model.

Bradley Revit Family Components Feature Coarse-Medium-Fine Detail Levels

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jun 3, 2011 9:24:47 AM

After downloading a Bradley Revit Family, review the model's Detail Level [Coarse-Medium-Fine] in a Revit project file.

Review the level of detail displayed in each Revit model view: elevation, plan and section views.

  • You will see more detail in these views as you cycle through your view settings of Coarse-Medium-Fine.
  • We realize that smaller print scales (1/8" = 1'-0"), require less detail (COARSE) for better print outs.
  • As you create views for larger print scales (enlarged plans, interior elevations); Bradley Revit Families provides more detail that will remain legible with heavier pen settings.

Each component (symbolic line, model line, solid, masking region) in a Bradley Revit Family, is assigned a detail level and visibility setting. They are fully customizable, so you can match our Revit components to your Revit-BIM graphic standards.

Revit Rendering and Walk-Through Tip

BEFORE you render a Revit View or play/export a Revit Walk Through, please set the view's Detail Level to FINE to view all of the 3D components inside the Bradley Revit family.

Bradley has more than 850+ Revit Plumbing Fixtures and Specialty Equipment family models in the Bradley Revit Family Library.
