This course covering everything you need to know to get started with Revit Content Creation.
The course is designed to support delegates interested in building their own 2D and 3D components adhering to best practice industry principles. Our Revit Family Creation Advanced course covers more complex aspects of content creation and can be combined with this course to create a 2 day intensive training session.

- UI Tour of the Family Editor
- Overview of standard templates
- Hosting options explained
- Choosing a category
- Different geometry formation methods explored
- Freeform modelling principles
- Joining geometry and its effects
- Cutting voids from solids
- Parameters; how they work, what they do
- Family types explained
- The theory of sub-assemblies
- Sub-assembly use cases
- When & when not to use sub-assemblies
- Understanding nesting & assembly methods
- Understanding shared nested families
- Creating and nesting a series of families
- Enabling shared nested families
- Mapping parameters across nested families to drive sub-assemblies
- The effect of mapping parameters and use cases
- Conditional formula driven parameters
- Checking and flexing models in the Family Editor
- Checking and flexing models in a Project Environment
- Standards and checklists
- Tips & Tricks for faster content testing
Who Should Attend
This course is suitable for delegates looking to establish the fundamental skills and experience to create good quality parametric BIM objects.
Delegates can attend this course with or without prior Revit training but should hold a basic understanding of design and construction software.
After attending this course, delegates will be able to:
- Explain the purpose behind Level of Detail
- Plan and evaluate family creation
- Determine the most appropriate category and hosting choice
- Build non-parametric (static) families
- Build parametric families
- Demonstrate modelling efficiencies through the use of nesting
- Apply simple formulas to parameter driven families
- Evaluate and test new family suitability before use
All training is carried out at your office. Delegates will require laptops or PCs with at least the demo/trial of Autodesk Revit installed as a minmumum requirement. The version of Revit used in the training should be consistent across all delegates computers i.e. Revit 2015 or 2016. If in doubt please ask us.
Training will commence at 10am. A 10 minute comfort break will be shceduled mid morning and mid afternoon. A 1hr lunch break will be scheduled to suit your preferred time. The course will conclude at 5pm. At your request we can change the training times to 9:30 – 4:30 if required.
A conference room or quiet are of the office is required for the training. A projector or screen is required for the training to connect into for teh duration of the training.
