    Default Help with Light Fixtures in Revit MEP

    In my "free time" here I decided to try out Revit Architecture and then moved the building I made into Revit MEP to try the Electrical potion out. I've added lights and decided to render a scene and no matter how I put the lights in it almost looks like they are upside down. So I was thinking maybe I would try to create my own Light Fixture Family. Are there any tutorials for that on here? I used the "Creating a Better Door" tutorial from on here and it was FANTASTIC!

    are you placing them in the ceiling grid layout or just on the floor plan. The MEP fixtures are created by face/plane hosting. The floor plan view extents of planes are a little different than the RCP, which is literally a "REFLECTED" ceiling plan...everything is reflected.
    Try placing them there, and your renderings should appear correct.

    There are tutorials on creating your own content, I believe Kyle posted them somewhere on here....
