- [Voiceover] In this video, I'll expose…you to the high level organization…and hierarchy that's built in to the Revit software.…It's important to understand how the different…objects and elements in the Revit platform…fit into a broader structure.…So, we'll start at the top level…and we'll work our way down.…So at the top of the hierarchy we have Categories.…Categories are built into the software.…They are very broad groupings of objects…and include all manner of elements…that we work with in the Revit software.…When you want to get more specific within a Category,…you're talking about a Family,…and when you want to get even more…specific within a Family, it's a Type.…
So, in general, Categories is a fixed list…that you can I can't change.…The list of Categories comes with the software…and includes things like walls, doors,…windows, text, dimensions.…Those are all Categories.…Now when you want to talk about…a particular kind of door, a double door…versus a single door versus a sliding door,…then you'd be really talking about the Family.…
Author Eric Wing shows how to model families that help you build exactly what you need for your drawings. Eric investigates profiles such as chair rails, baseboards, doors, cabinets, and shelving, as well as adaptive components. Along the way, he introduces the reference planes, parameters, and formulas necessary to build architectural families on your own.
NOTE: The exercise files included in this course are compatible with Revit 2017 only. We will add 2016-compatible files soon.
