The objective of this course is to enable users who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge in creating custom system, in-place, and component families. Families are the backbone of Autodesk Revit. They are the elements you add as you model a building and its services, as well as the tools you use as you are annotating views.
This is not an introductory course. You should be comfortable with the fundamentals of Autodesk Revit and have knowledge of basic techniques before registering.
The workshop will cover practices that are specific to MEP as well as architectural practices for families. During the workshop the instructor will teach you how to:
- Set up a component family file with a parametric framework.
- Create family geometry.
- Create family types.
- Modify the visibility of components and incorporate additional family items such as controls, and add nested components.
- Create specific families, including in-place families, profiles, annotations, and parameters.
You will be awarded 6.5 PDHs or 0.65 CEUs after successful completion of the workshop. Registration for both the July 15 and July 29 workshops is available at education.aspe.org/revitworkshops.
