Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Revit: Family Curves and Formulas.
This is an intermediate level course. It assumes that you've got some knowledge of the Family Editor before we get started. So if this is your first time doing any Family content or your first time in The Family Editor, you're welcome to ahead and give this course a try. But you may want to consider some prerequisites first. Now it turns out that we have lots for you to choose from right here at the lynda.com library. So of course there's a little bit of coverage of it in the central training, but if you want just a quick overview of The Family Editor, you can try out my friend Eric Wing's course here, the Revit Families Workshop.
It's about two hours in length, and covers a lot of basics of The Family Editor. If you want to go a little deeper than that, we have Revit Architecture: The Family Editor. This is another course that I've authored. And it's a little bit more of a deep dive, and it covers a lot more material on the basics of The Family Editor. But it certainly starts from square one and then goes progressively through more and more detail as you go, and would provide a really good set of prerequisite skills for starting in this course. Now somewhat tangential is advanced modeling in Revit Architecture, also another course that I've done.
It's mostly in The Family Editor, but it also touches on the massing environment quite heavily. So we're not going to really talk about those techniques necessarily in this course, so I wouldn't necessarily say this is a prerequisite to this course, but it really could be seen as a corollary. All of the content of this course would be applicable in both the traditional Family Editor and massing environments. So they really do kind of work hand in hand. So as you can see, we've got lots of resources for you to dig into.here at lynda.com. And with that let's go ahead and starting doing curves and formulas in Revit Architecture.
- Creating seed families
- Creating circles, ellipses, and arcs
- Controlling rotation
- Working with segmental and elliptical arches
- Using profile families
- Working with cyma curves
- Using fixed proportion and scaling
