Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Loading families, part of Up and Running with Revit.
Walls, doors, and windows are certainly your most basic building blocks and they…certainly start to make a layout come together.…But there's many other objects that we need to add to our building models in…order to complete them. It might be plumbing fixtures.…It might be furniture and equipment. Other kinds of doors and windows, columns,…you name it. All of these things are possible in Revit.…And some of them have their own dedicated tools, and some of them don't.…But what they all have in common. Is that each of these elements that we can…add to our model are called Families in the Revit environment.…So, everything is a family. And a family is just an, a discreet item…that you can place in a model. And we have lots of different kinds of…families. If the object that you want to place…doesn't have it's own dedicated command. In the previous movie, we added doors and…windows. And they each had their own tool but…furniture and equipment and plumbing fixtures.…
They don't all have their own tool. What we use instead is this Component…
