Practical Revit Family Tips and Tricks (w/Special Guest Philip Chan)

On this weeks episode of BIM After Dark Live I will be joined by a special guest (Philip Chan) to talk about Revit family creation. This won’t be about making fancy conceptual massing shapes and crazy custom curtain systems… This will be about PRACTICAL and USEFUL family creation tips.

Phil (of the Phil-osophy in BIM blog) will talk about some of his most valuable family creation tips for every day modeling use cases.

Just some of the content we will cover includes:
– How to use nested profile to control rotation in your family
– How to use nested profile to make exposed curve end beam family – Tips on getting the manufacturer family behave the way you want it
– Tips on re-purposing existing content as nested family

Join us live, ask questions, and enjoy the show!
