Lattice Girders definition is a command where the user can create new definitions, edit existing ones and also import/export new definitions into the project. Lattice Girders definition can be found in IMPACT -> Components tab. 

Lattice Girder definitions are used both in Form Slab and Double Wall elements.

In order to connect the Lattice girder family with the Lattice Girder definition take a look at the described workflow in the article here 

Currently, IMPACT Revit operates with LatticeGirderSingle and LatticeGirderDouble Revit families, which can be found in 1100 StruSoft standard. 

Map LatticeGirderSingle and LatticeGirderDouble Revit families with the Lattice Girders definitions, if you work in the 1100 StruSoft standard or copy-paste the two families in your own IMPACT company standard. See the picture below, where the location of the Lattice Girder families is shown in the IMPACT standard folder structure.
