What would you suggest a curtain wall / window / door manufacturer provide?
As an outsider to the industry;
I would suggest that you provide complete families of your pieces and parts.
With all information as is practical assigned to them.

There you go again with crazy talk of boggie men with common sense.  You are going to terrify the poor folk.

Are you doing any engineering calculations using Revit such as HVAC loads, structural analysis or other calculations like estimating costs?

Most of the Mechanical Engineers we work with are using Revit to run HVAC loads.

Most structural contractors we work with say Revit is not so good for structural loads and they prefer Tekla.

We are using Autocad MEP to intergrate with our estimating system but thats all custom stuff nothing out of the box.

k. Thanks.

I'm wondering if it would be useful for Architects to get a fairly accurate cost estimate of our product directly from the model.

We wanting to get to there.  But we are looking at a year at least to even think in those terms of output.

Yeah, not exactly a static issue. I could not see this done without some programming and a link to our pricing index.

I need to get up to speed with the application.
Any book recommendations or training classes?

I downloaded the tutorial from Autodesk.  Sorry I dont have the link but you should be able to goggle it.  Was decent in getting me up and running.

Here's some stuff wrapped up in a zip file that has been more than useful for me (reading and reference material). To all the others on this board, might want to grab this stuff too.

This is on my Dropbox so I'll eventually delete after awhile.
