Parametric Cabinets in Revit Tutorial (w/Brent)

In this episode of BIM After Dark Live I will be welcoming Brenton Wiberg back to the show to talk about building parametric cabinets in Revit. In this live Revit tutorial, Brenton will walk through how he goes about building a custom cabinet family from scratch! We’ll explore his thought process on how to approach this type of family and his lessons learned from many years of getting PAID to MAKE families just like this one.

So sit back, relax, and let’s geek out!!
