Covers the process of creating a family and adding parameters, 3D elements, symbolic lines, and materials.
- Hi, I'm Eric Wing. Welcome to this course on Learning to Create Families in Revit. I've been working in the field of architecture, engineering, and construction for over 20 years, and have enjoyed seeing how Revit has evolved over those years, and become a rich and full featured BIM-management program. I also have authored several books on Autodesk BIM Solution in Revit, including Revit Structure Essentials, Mastering Revit Structure, and Revit Architecture: No Experience Required. In this course, we're gonna be creating all types of families. We're gonna start with a simple profile that's fully parametric, then go to an arched door, all the way to some MEP families.
Within these families, we're gonna be covering Applet Selection, Reference Planes, Parameters, Solid Forms, Void Forms, Line Based Families, Arrays in Families, Nested Families, Yes/ No Functions, Mathematical Expressions, and If Statements. We'll also cover In Place Families, as well. First we'll cover the most essential procedures, setting up a foundation, so you can create and learn along the way. Creating families correctly is quite an important aspect of working successfully within Revit. So, I wanna make sure you're going down the right path.
Each family we create will be accompanied by the actual finished family. You can use my families as the lesson progresses, or you can take what you're learning and apply it to your own situation by using your own families. You can be intermediate or advanced and still bring away some valuable skills. And you know as well as I do, once you master Revit Families, you are the go-to person.
