This is the second and final step of the family modification process. Smart Browser utilizes modification files to create a description of how families will have to be modified.

The process has two steps:

1) Modification file creation.

2) Running the described modifications. 


To run the modification process, click on “Run Modifications”. In the opened menu, choose the modification file you want to apply. After clicking “OK” the Smart Browser will open every family that had to be modified and apply the predefined modifications. Note: after running the modification, families will be saved in the same Revit version where the process was run. 

After the modification is performed, the “Performed Modification Date” will be automatically filled by Smart Browser.


Numbers in the modification completion notification window correspond to “how many families were modified / how many families were in modification task”. 

Cases when those numbers would not match:

  1. Not all families in the modification file had modification tasks assigned
  2. Modifications did not go through


Note: modifications in which non-consistent units were used in parameters will simply not be loaded into the family. But if modification breaks the family, the Smart Browser will show an error message and will show the log file (.txt) to know which family caused the issue.
