Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Completing the family, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
So, our pool table family is basically complete.…It could use a few finishing touches. So, in this movie I would like to add few…more little details to the pool table and then the real test is to load it into a…project and then make sure that it is behaving in the project the way that we…would expect. So, if you've been following along, you…can continue in your own file. Otherwise, this is Pool Table View 2.…Probably the most noticeable thing that you'll see here if we look in the 3D view,…is that, most pool tables have that really recognizable green felt on the surface there.…So, one of the things we can do in the family editor environment is, we can…select our solid forms. And we can actually apply materials to them.…
So, I'm going to select the extrusion that we've used for the pool table surface…there and I'm going to look over here on the Properties palette.…And if I scroll down a little bit under materials and finishes, you'll see that…currently the material is set to by category.…Now, I like to affectionately refer to by category as grey cardboard.…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
