Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding families, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- This chapter is devoted to The Family Editor.…Now, The Family Editor is a very large topic…that could easily take up an entire course.…In fact, we have a course here in the lynda.com library…called Revit Architecture: The Family Editor.…So in this chapter,…we're just gonna cover the high-level basics,…and we're gonna build a really simple parametric Family,…but if you wanna learn more about The Family Editor,…I do highly encourage you to check out that other course…after you're finished here.…So let's start with just a quick look at the Basics…of the Family Editor,…just so you kinda have yourself in the right mindset.…When we talk about the Family Editor,…what I'm specifically talking about here…is we're gonna create a Model family,…so it's gonna be a Model element that we're gonna create,…and we're gonna make it a Parametric family.…
So that means that some of the next steps…that I'm gonna outline to you,…may not apply if you're creating either a non-Model family,…or if you're creating a family that doesn't need…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
