REVIT MEP Family Errors

  • Problem
  • Updated 5 years ago
REVIT - All the Nibco Valves give an error message in the family types that reads "ERROR_LOAD TYPE CATALOG." Is there a type catalog that is suppose to be downloaded with these valves? Also, all the victaulic couplings do not change sizes when the valve itself changes sizes.

1. Yes there is a type catalog. You need to download the TXT file and have it in the same location as the RFA.
2. All pipe fittings have a lookup table. This csv file needs to be in the lookup table location that is specified in the Revit ini file. Then you will be able to change the size on the coupling or fittings as needed.

Verify piping csv file are located under \LookupTables\Pipe

The coupling will not function correctly in the root of the folder.
