[Watch] Planning out your Revit families

This technical presentation discusses how to create a plan for your more complex Revit families so you can create them efficiently and to the requirements of your firm. Using the creation of architectural doors as the working example, we discuss how to map out your requirements for both graphics and data to create a functional, user-friendly door.

The video covers:

  • Planning your family requirements
  • Understanding the difference between graphic requirements and data
  • When to use shared vs. family vs. project parameters
  • Different ways to control and manipulate nested families
