2. Fill in the product info including the product name, images, manufacturer, and pricing.
3. Next, fill in the room data that where the products will be located. Include information like the client’s goals, how the room will be used, and more.

Why Use FF&E Specification Software Linked to Revit?
On a simple project, you can use a regular old Excel template to create your FF&E schedule. But over time, manual entry into a spreadsheet template can lead to mistakes and errors, particularly in large-scale projects.
This is exactly why firms are using FF&E specification software like Layer, to integrate their FF&E schedule directly with Revit.
Get All Your FF&E Data in One Place
How much time have you lost searching for the same product online over and over again? Or looking up your furniture schedule in a folder structure that no one follows?
Layer helps you streamline your FF&E workflow by collecting all of your FF&E data inside of Revit, so you can spend less time searching and more time designing.
Having one source of truth that updates in real-time also means that everyone (from architects to interior designers) can be on the same page across your team.
“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked what a product looks like in a client meeting. I no longer have to go searching for a catalog; now I simply use Layer to click on it in the model to see its photos and specs instantly.”Louise Cupac, Founding Principal, Plus Parts FF&E
Specify FF&E Seamlessly within Revit
One of our customers’ favorite feature in Layer is its ability to integrate directly with Revit. Within our Revit Add-in, you can connect FF&E types to the Revit model automatically and instantly see up-to-date quantities and locations of instances as the project progresses.
Layer also makes it easy for non-Revit (and non-tech-savvy) users to access Revit data without ever opening Revit. This lets you have an accurate FF&E schedule in Revit or outside of Revit.
“Layer has streamlined our FF&E process significantly in comparison to our previous Excel-based approach. From design to documentation, Layer’s flexible database and direct connection to Revit has saved design staff hours of time producing accurate and complete FF&E deliverables.”AnnMarie Jackson FASID, CHID, CID, EDAC, Healthcare Interior Designer
Build FF&E Presentations in Minutes
It takes a lot of billable hours to format your FF&E data into a presentable format. Especially when you’re designing for a large-scale project like a hospital or school where you have to specify tons of furniture.
With Layer, you can create simple presentations and export detailed reports with FF&E data in minutes, without third party software.
