Fig. Revit Lighting fixture with photometric light sources
When creating or modifying a Revit family, how do I set a lighting fixture to have a light source for building performance calculations and visual presentations?
This can be set under the Family Category and Parameters dialogue.
Ensure the fitting is set to a Light Fitting category and tick display ‘Light Source’. This will allow the setting of light distribution and energy information, either in generic forms or from a specific manufacturer IES file.
By enabling the light source, a parameter group, Photometrics will become available within the family types dialogue.
