  • Rule-based distribution of details and voids on any element surfaces.
  • Simple insertion of point-based and line-based details.
  • Host-element data can be read and used to modify detail families automatically.
  • Easily rotate/flip details in configuration window to get desired result.
  • Check whether host element has enough solid body for detail to be inserted.
  • Insert details according to gravity point.
  • Insert details at intersection points of other Revit elements.
  • Quick modification and updating of inserted details.
