We have been meeting every Monday since the spring of 2010 with an original Revit lesson. I am thinking of taking a hiatus. Let's see in a month or so if there is enough demand to start up again.

Please email me if you'd be in for more Revit Learning Club starting in October or November.

For Monday, September 12, 2011 - The Family Editor

Let's look at Revit's Family editor. What do all of those tools do? What are some of the issues that one needs to know to make content in Revit?

Some subjects to cover:
  • Different kinds of Family Templates
  • Subcategories
  • The Reference Plane tool 
  • The Reference Line tool 
  • The Void tool
  • The Extrusion, Blend, Revolve, Sweep, Swept Blend tools
  • Profiles
  • The Load into Project tool 
  • Parameters
  • Flexing the model
  • The Control tool 
  • The Model Text tool 
  • Etc.

For further study, see The Families Guide -- "A guide that contains conceptual explanations, hands-on tutorials, and reference information to help you understand how to work with Revit Architecture families."

This will also be the last meeting of our 8-week session. Revit Learning Club may go on hiatus after September 12th.
