Revit Family Creation – An Overview

Revit Family Creation – An Overview

The Revit family creation services involve generating basic parametric families like equipment and furniture and a lot more. Family creation entails modifying various families so as to raise the graphics quality of the project models.

The Revit architecture essentially incorporates 3 types of families which are the system families, standard component or Loadable and the in-place families.

  • System families: The system families are maintained by the internal database of the software. Users cannot generate or delete any of the components of system families. The primary elements of the views, texts, dimensions and so on fall under the system families. The different geometrical objects like ducts, pipes and many more are also contained in the system families. It is not possible to share elements of the system families between projects.
  • Loadable / Component families: Component families like fixtures, fittings, and devices, and a lot more could be generated and kept in the external library. Users can modify the elements of the component families in accordance with the particular requirements of the project. Upon generation, these components are saved in the external libraries of the software.
  • In-place families: The in-place families are custom made geometries which are not intended to be reused or shared between any projects.T hese families are built within the project only.

Every Revit architecture family is linked with two types of parameters- One is the type parameter and other is instance parameter. The type parameter possesses the general information regarding an element in the family. However, the instance parameters are linked to particular instances of the element that are developed by the user.

The step by step procedures which are implemented in providing effective Revit family creation services are listed below:

  • Family template Selection
  • Planning of the parameters
  • Model geometry creation
  • Allocating the object subcategories, based on the requirement
  • Set up visibility rules
  • Generation of family types

Revit is amongst the most lucrative software being integrated into the different building information modeling projects. All the elements in Revit software are family dependent and every element is of distinctive shape, size as well as parametric variables. Thus, Revit Families facilitates rapid work enabling Engineers to make modifications promptly thus making it possible for them to upgrade model with marginal errors. BIM Services India has a team of qualified engineers having years of experience in delivering high-end Revit Family Creation ServicesView our Family Creation Portfolio for Samples of different Revit Families executed for clients based in US, UK, Canada and Australia.
