If you have used Revit Architecture 2013, you've probably noticed that the entire model is based on the families you have in place. If you don't know how to make families, then this course from veteran trainer Eric Wing is for you. It demonstrates the process of creating a family and adding parameters, 3D elements, symbolic lines, and materials. Along the way, Eric covers template selection, reference planes, solid forms, void forms, line-based families, arrays in families, nested families, Yes/No functions, mathematical expressions, if statements, and in-place families.

Topics include:
  • Creating a basic profile family
  • Creating a door family
  • In-place massing

(music playing) Hi, I'm Eric Wing. Welcome to this course on learning to create families in Revit. I've been working the field of architecture, engineering, and construction for over 20 years. And have enjoyed seeing how Revit has evolved over those years to become a rich and full featured bin management program. I also have authored several books on auto does bin solution Rivet. Including Rivet structure essentials mastering Rivet structure and rivet architecture no experience required. In this course we're going to be creating all types of families.

We're going to start with a simple profile that's full parametric then go to an artidore all the way to some emmy p families. Within these families, we're going to be covering template selection, reference planes, parameters. Solid forms, void forms. Line based families, arrays and families, nested families. Yes/no functions, mathematical expressions, and if statements. We'll also cover in place families as well. First we'll cover the most essential procedures, setting up a foundation so you can create and learn along the way. Creating families correctly is quite an important aspect of working successfully within Revit, so I want to make sure you're going down the right path. Each family we create will be accompanied by the actual finished family. You can use my families as the lesson progresses, or you can take what you are learning and apply it to your own situation by using your own families. You can be intermediate or advanced, and still bring away some valuable skills. And you know as well as I do, once you master Revit families, you are the go-to person.
