For Architects is the online connection between building products manufacturers and the architects who specify them. is built specifically as a companion to the "Family Automation Revit" (FAR) program—a service of CAD Enhancement, Inc.—which allows architects to receive up-to-date Revit Family (RFA) files directly from the manufacturer for use in daily design inside any of Autodesk's Revit family of products.

Top Quality Content
The parts you find at are not like other Revit Family sharing sites. Our parts are not user-generated. Instead, we partner with building product manufacturers to create intelligent, stable, and usable Revit Families. What's more, every part on has been tested and validated by our staff before being published live. Don't jeopardize your entire project for free content. Check first.

The FAR Manager
In order to download and use parts from, you must use the FAR Manager to import our proprietary transfer format into Revit. The .FAR file format is a tiny file, compressing the complex geometric data of a .RFA file for easy transport and storage.
