Content Types

All families and model groups in the Fetch library may be attached with multiple supporting documents and files. We divide these between primary components, models or files that are loaded directly into Revit; and secondary components, such as other supporting documents.

Primary Components

Primary components are files that can be loaded into Revit directly.

These are typically:

  • • Families (.rfa)
  • • Model Groups (.rvt or dynamic model group, multiple .rfa)
  • • Tags (.rfa)
  • • Schedules (.rvt)
  • • Project Templates (.rvt)

Secondary Files

While a primary file is anything that is loaded directly into Revit (families, model groups, etc.), secondary components are other files and supporting documents that can apply to individual families or to a group of products.

These items can include:

  • • Material libraries (.adsklib)
  • • CSI specs (.doc/.docx)
  • • Spec guides (.pdf)
  • • Finish options (.pdf)
  • • Installation guides (.pdf))
  • • Sustainability information (.pdf)
