The Revit Family Editor is extremely powerful but sometimes intimidating. This class will introduce you to the basics of the Revit 2010 Family Editor. In this five-part introduction to the Family Editor, renowned author and industry expert Paul F. Aubin will walk you through the creation of Revit component (loadable) Families complete with constraints and parameters. Don't worry if you don't know what a constraint or parameter is; we'll cover that too. So whether you've never worked in Revit Architecture before, or have used Revit for awhile but simply avoided the Family Editor, this series will help get you acclimated to this critical and powerful aspect of using the Revit software. Best of all, you can download the accompanying course handout PDF file and Revit datasets to follow the steps on your own! This set includes all five DVDs (Session 1 - Session 5) in the series.
