    Default Revit bathroom families made in Inventor

    It is a pain in the neck to make most plumbing fixtures (toilets, baths, sinks etc) look good in Revit. Usually I have to rely on a dxf volume and use masking regions and dwg 2D imports to end up with anything that remotely resembles the finished product. I have tried to make or adapt existing Revit volumes, usually to no avail. And using different tools to make different views of the same building component representation isnt really the way to go IMO.

    What I was wondering is whether someone has made the effort to create basic bathroom families in Inventor which I can use in Revit, or whether there is another good resource for families that look consistent without too many hacks.

    What kind of things are you looking for? Creating the plumbing fixtures simply requires a good sculpting sense. Lots of voids, using every solids tool available...

    Revit tools are frustrating for that level of detail at best. If it had prettier shaders for dxf imports (without showing that ugly grid pattern) then that's all I would need.
