Key requirements for custom plant family files:

  • They were created using the Planting family template.
  • They should have linked 2D and 3D views to be effective in Revit.


As long as your custom plant family files follow the guidelines laid out above, Planting F/X will add the rest.




First, copy your RFA (.rfa) file into the appropriate library folder: Trees or Shrubs. (Trees folder shown as an example.)

You can now edit your plant. Select a symbol, and you’ll see the new family available to choose from.


If a single .rfa includes multiple states, they’ll all appear here.
