If the BIM object you downloaded from bimstore only contains 1 size variation when loaded into Revit when there should be multiple, try using the below method:

To load all of the size variations into your project please use the following steps:

1. With your project open, select ‘Component’ on the ‘Architecture’ tab.
2. Select ‘Load Family’.
3. Navigate to where you have saved the download. (3a. Please make sure you extract both the Revit family and the text file from the ZIP.)
4. Select the Revit family.
5. A new window will appear in Revit, from here you can select the type(s) you wish to load into your project.
6. Select OK.
7. The Revit family will now load the selected type(s) into your project.
