Description

Description

Maybe you know the power of Revit software's Family Editor but you've avoided it or it has intimidated you until now. Wait no more. This hands-on lab will introduce you to the basics of Family Editor. Once you get past being intimidated, you will find that while Family Editor is extremely powerful, it can actually be great fun. In this short introduction to Family Editor, you will create a Revit component family complete with constraints and parameters. Don't worry if you don't know what a constraint or parameter is—we'll cover that too. Whether you've never worked in Revit software before, or you've used Revit software for a while but you've simply avoided Family Editor, this lab will teach you the basics of the editor in the most effective way possible—hands on. (The session uses architectural examples, but the concepts apply to the flavors of Revit software, including Revit LT software.)
