Course content


  • Basic Knowledge about Revit


Note: This course is full of real-world examples of creating Revit families in various projects.

  • Do you find that certain types of families or components are particularly difficult to create in Revit?

  • your families are flexible and can be easily modified to meet changing design requirements?

  • Have you ever had to create a family from scratch for a particularly unique or complex design element?

In this comprehensive course, you’ll learn everything you need to know to design and create families that are both precise and adaptable.

Starting with the basics of creating simple components, we’ll move on to more complex design elements like columns, beams, and even staircases. You’ll learn how to make your families parametric, so they can be easily modified to meet changing design requirements. We’ll also cover best practices for organizing your families, so you and your team can quickly and easily find the right component for your project.
