Import Custom Assembly Codes into Revit 2015-2016

Revit 2015 offers a simple tool, from within the Revit interface, to import a custom assembly code file. Now, assembly code trees utilized in Assemble can be exported from Assemble and imported into Revit in a few quick and easy steps, allowing undeviating assembly descriptions of your model elements.

Assembly code files imported into Revit are model-specific when using Revit's new Assembly Codes Settings tool, and will not affect all models opened in Revit.

Note: Revit's Assembly Codes Settings tool will ignore codes beyond Level 5.
