Analyze high-quality content

This is not just a "theory" course. You will explore real, high-quality lean families.

Case study: structural nested family

One of the case study will be this structural family, which is made of multiple nested elements.

Build a fun experience for the end-user

Families are useless if users don't understand them. You will build families that are intuitive to your entire team.

Don't take this course if:

01

You have no experience creating Revit families. You should at least be familiar with parameters, reference planes and basic geometry.

02

You want to build families specifically for MEP. While the strategies apply to all disciplines, duct & plumbing families aren't covered.

03

You want to create annotation families. The course focus on creating 3D geometric content.

04

You don't care about high-quality content in your Revit models 😉
