Description

Description

This class presents several custom families that incorporate structural engineering within the families themselves. By integrating engineering into custom families, a structural engineer can capitalize on more features of Revit Structure to aid in the engineering design process. The families demonstrate several tools within the Family Editor, including nesting, formulas, conditional statements, reporting parameters, and visibility settings. In a companion class, SE1592: Incorporating Engineering into Revit® Structure: Project Procedures, these families and all of their features are demonstrated within the project environment.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Engineers, engineering technicians, drafters, designers, anyone who wants to expand on the possibilities of structural engineering within Revit Structure
