Description

Description

The power and potential of the Revit Family Editor is vast, and 90 minutes just doesn't do it justice. Dispensing with the basics, this hands-on lab jumps right into the deep end of the pool. (If you need to brush up on the basics, video recordings of many Family Editor basics are posted on my website for all attendees.) In this hands-on lab, we explore advanced parameters and the use of formulas to drive the geometry. Whether you are new to the Family Editor or just want to use its more advanced features, this lab gives you the tools to begin making more advanced family content. We explore formulas, family type parameters, materials, and even dabble in some trigonomic functions. So be sure to buckle your seat belt. You are in for an exciting ride!

Target Audience
