BEAM will import family instances with loose geometry save in the .beam.BLOCS imports and place family instances from blocks using.URSA can place adaptive componets using curves and level based families using points.RAY can export Revit content to Rhino

Some Revit users have discovered another solution to help identifying quickly the Beam Start and End. The solution is to open and edit the existing beam .rfa family by adding a "Control" Horizontal symbol (single arrow) on plan. Assuming the arrow end represents the Beam Start and the arrow head represents the Beam End (Figure 3).
After modifying the .rfa, you can reload it into the project and overwrite the existing family. Now, if you select the beam on plan, you will see the blue horizontal control arrow showing up which can be used to identify very quickly the Beam Start and End (Figure 4).
P.S. Technically speaking the Control command allows users to place arrows in order to rotate and mirror the geometry of the family. However, due to the current software limitation on any 2 Pick Structural Framing .rfa family, although you can place the blue horizontal arrow, but it really cannot rotate and mirror the beam.
Custom defined beam shapes that fit within each family of girder types supported by PGSuper can also be added to the user copy of the templates, thereby extending the girder shapes that the user can design, analyze, and load rate with the program.
PSTRS14 Version 6.1, incorporates enhancements and modifications versus v5.2, including:consideration of End Distance, Transfer Length, and Beam Length that were ignored in all prior versions of PSTRS14;updating provisions of the AASHTO LRFD BDS (thru the 12th Edition);implementing the new loss method proposed in Research Project 0-6374, "Effects of New Prestress Loss Predictions on TxDOT Bridges";bug fixes to the v5.1 implementation of the complex AASHTO LRFD loss of prestress methodology, that was introduced in the 4th Edition (2007) and remains the AASHTO method beyond the 6th Edition; andimplementation of an Optional Life Cycle Camber Report allowing PSTRS14 users to get a report on estimated time dependent camber history based on critical stages in the life of the beam/bridge, including at end of service life. 2b1af7f3a8
