Autodesk Revit Content Creation: BIM Parametric Families
Course Length = 1 day
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach to the entire building life cycle. Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, Autodesk® Revit® MEP, and Autodesk® Revit® Structure are powerful BIM programs that support the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design, construction, and management phases of a building’s life. A key component in managing the BIM process is to establish a company foundation for different types of projects by creating standard templates and custom elements. Having this in place makes the process of any new project flow smoothly and efficiently.
The objective of this course is to enable students who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge in setting up office standards with templates that include annotation styles, preset views, sheets, and schedules, as well as creating custom element types and families.
Students will learn how to:
- Set up a family file.
- Create family geometry.
- Create family types.
- Create specific families, including, in-place families, profiles, annotation, and shared parameters.
- Different Kinds of Families
- Family Editor
- Opening the Family Editor
Working with Families
- Viewing Families in a Project or Template
- Viewing Elements with a Specific Family Type in a Project
- Creating an Element from a Family Type
- Changing the Family Type of an Element
- Modifying a Family Type
- Adding a Type to a Family
- Importing Family Types
- Deleting Unused Families and Family Types
- Working with Shared Components in a Project
- Scheduling Shared Components
Loading and Savings Families
- Loading Families
- Loading Families with Shared Components into a Project
- Loading a Family with a Type Catalog
- Loading the Current Family into a Project
- Saving Loaded Families
- Reloading a Family into a Project
- Modifying Families in a Project (or Nested Family)
- Students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of the Autodesk® Revit® software. Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, such as creating standard element, copying and moving elements, and creating and working with views, etc.
- Knowledge of Microsoft® Windows.
