This is the first release of our plug-in to instantiate Revit families using data from Grasshopper.

Lyrebird for Grasshopper will create one component, LBOut for sending information from Grasshopper to Revit.  Within Revit, the Lyrebird plugin will create a split button with four commands: a toggle to turn the receiver on/off, a settings dialog, a command to select all elements in a particular set, and a command to strip the Lyrebird data from selected element(s).

We have tested this project, but it is the first release and it may still contain bugs. Please use it "as is", it does not come with warranties. I spent a lot of time developing the logic and implementing it, please give credit where credit is due.

To install:

Download the Lyrebird.msi file from below and run it to install Lyrebird for the local user.  If you want to install it for all users, please download the ZIP file (currently available on our blog) and follow the following directions:

In Grasshopper, choose File > Special Folders > Components folder. Save the gha file there.
Right-click the file > Properties > make sure there is no "blocked" text
Restart Rhino and Grasshopper

For Revit, copy the two DLL files and one ADDIN file to %programdata%\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2014.
Right-click the file > Properties > make sure there is no "blocked" text
Restart Revit 2014.
