Revit elements which can have fabrication information are:
  • FamilyInstance (structural beams and columns).
  • StructuralConnectionHandler elements associated to the connection.
  • Specific steel connection elements (bolts, anchors, plates, etc). These connection elements will be of type element but with categories related to structural connections, for example:
    • OST_StructConnectionWelds
    • OST_StructConnectionHoles
    • OST_StructConnectionModifiers
    • OST_StructConnectionShearStuds
    • OST_StructConnectionBolts
    • OST_StructConnectionAnchors
    • OST_StructConnectionPlates
  • Some concrete elements (walls, floors, concrete beams, ...) when they are input elements to detailed steel connections.
The class also holds the link to the Steel Core elements.
