General Usage Instructions

distLumi is a plugin for Autodesk® Revit® that locates one or several lighting fixtures, air terminals, electrical fixtures and fire alarm devices in a selected location or area by selecting two points.

The plugin needs only a family instance previously located by the user in a Reference Plane, and works in a View Plan Type (Floor Plan or Ceiling Plan), the family instance must be of one of the following categories:

  • Lighting Fixtures.
  • Air Terminals.
  • Electrical Fixtures.
  • Fire Alarm Devices.

 

The Reference Plane mentioned must be made in a section, not in the View Plan.

The plugin will facilitate the work flow to the user for placing light fixtures, air terminals, electrical fixtures and fire alarm devices in rectangular areas without inclination.

  • Push the plugin button:
  • Previously the user had located the family instances in a Reference Plane.
  • Then the user will insert the number of rows and columns, required to distribute (Only integer-type numbers and greater than 0).

    • D2 (Disposition 2): Locates family instances D/2-D-D/2 and locates additional family instances in the middle of 4 of the first family selected, this disposition allows to the user to use two different types of family instances and needs a minimum of 2 columns and  2 rows.
    • D3 (Disposition 3): Locates family instances D/2-D-D/2 and locates additional family instances in the middle of 2 of the first family selected of two rows, this disposition allows the user to use two different types of family instances and needs a minimum of 1 column and  2 rows.
