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 Revit-BIM Family Quality Standards | Top 10 FAQs

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Apr 2, 2016 7:46:00 AM

Each week Bradley clients; architects, engineers, contractors and facility owners contact our Revit-BIM Team with questions that ask;

"How are Bradley Revit families created?"

Here are the Top 10 Value Points that we share with them;

01) Extensive Division 10 & 22 Revit Library: Bradley's Revit Family Library currently has more than 1000 Revit family components representing thousands of Bradley plumbing fixture and specialty equipment products.

02) Documented-Proven Modeling Standards: We initially used the Revit Model Style Guide from Autodesk SEEK.

However, based on 10 years of actual Revit-BIM project experience, I rewrote and tripled the size of the original document. Bradley's new document better serves our clients' and the industry's evolving Revit-BIM project standards-practices.

 

03) Family Types: Bradley Revit family models represent thousands of Bradley products. Many Revit families include multiple variations of each Bradley product.

 We define product variations for a single Revit family; one of two ways:

AIA Expo New Orleans

Posted by Jonathan Rydz on May 11, 2011 6:24:47 AM

The AIA Expo starts tomorrow (May 12), and I am looking forward to being there on the first day. This will the unveiling of a new booth design, which will allow us to showcase several products and services at the same time-and BIM is one of them!

We are having an invitation-only BIM Bash! Come to our booth at 3:00 Thursday - Ask for me, Jonathan (I'll be in the burgundy polo shirt) and mention this blog and I'll get you in. We'll have beverages, some very nice give-aways, drawings, and more! The BIM Bash is only an hour long, so don't be late!

Along with BIM, we also will be introducing our new line of high-end washroom accessories, the Diplomat Series. The Diplomat Series has a very nice, sleek look which will complement just about any decor.

We have four Revit families posted on our site right now, and will have the remaining families posted in the next few weeks.

We'll be featuring other new products at the expo, so please stop by!
