Learn how to create new simple component families in Revit, that are properly set up to be parametric over time.
- [Instructor] Let's start…by creating a very simple component family…that will act as a placeholder for the busing station.…In some projects, especially projects with a lot…of equipment, it can be a good idea early on…to make generic placeholder families for…all the different kinds of equipment…that you can reuse over and over again.…Let's go to File, New, and then…when we hover over the arrow tab, we go down to Family.…If you are prompted to save the project, go ahead.…
Now, the first thing we need to decide,…although it can be changed later, is family category.…These are things like casework,…furniture, door, window,…and Revit approaches these families…in different ways depending on the category.…Since we don't have to reuse this placeholder family over…and over again like we might in some projects,…let's go ahead and choose the furniture category.…Then I'll give Revit a little bit more information about…how to treat this family once it's in our project.…
If you want to be more open-ended,…there is this generic model that can be useful.…
