Description

Description

Creating and customizing families is likely one of the most desired advanced skills in Revit software, and learning the Family Editor can be challenging—not only due to the vast amount of knowledge there is to be gained, but also because much of the resources to learn the Family Editor are focused on architectural examples and processes. This lab will provide an introduction into the Family Editor from a structural perspective. While we can apply the fundamental ideas to any discipline, we will structurally focus the examples.

This session is full, but an alternate time is now available.

Desiree Mackey

Desirée (Dezi) Mackey has been in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry for more than 15 years. After obtaining her bachelor's and master’s degrees from the University of California, Davis, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, she perpetuated her nerdy tendencies with Revit software. She started her career in California with a construction company, she continued with a structural engineering firm, and now she is a practicing structural engineer and Building Information Modeling (BIM) manager at Martin/Martin in Denver, Colorado. Dezi is a regular speaker at many conferences. She is the co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Building Information Society, the chair of the Structural Engineers Association of Colorado's BIM Committee, a member of the RTC North America Committee, and she has served as an Autodesk User Group International (AUGI) board member, treasurer, and vice president. Finally, as if that’s not enough Revit in her life, she’s married to “The Revit Geek” and acts as a partner in his BIM consulting firm, BD Mackey Consulting.
