Revit 2021 – Picking New Furniture Host in Groups


When one is placing furniture in a model, one must be careful to place it on the floor that represents the finished floor level, and not on a floor that is later moved down (like a slab). The furniture does not reside on the level but on the floor. It is irritating to have to rehost the furniture again if the slab is moved down.  

Things get more complicated when the furniture is placed in a group. One is not able to rehost furniture that is in a group. This means that to fix the problem, one must isolate one instance of the group, explode the group, and then save it as a new group name, before changing out the others. This could get rid of a lot of information in the process, so be consistent and consequent when creating groups where furniture accepts the floor as a host.
