Description: Through general use and introduction into the workflow of Revit, one quickly realizes that not all families are the same. Not only are the general quality and intelligence of each family different, but the utilization of those families and how they interact can be fundamentally different. In this course, we will review the challenges and benefits of working with nested families within Revit. While nested families are a requirement within Revit in systems like stairs, curtainwalls, or railings; they also hold a wealth of benefits when utilized in custom families throughout the Revit modeling process such as casework and doors. While this course focuses on the Architectural use of Revit, there is some correlation with the other discipline’s use of the software as well as general management of Revit. Join us to discover the often hidden and secret world of nested families and begin to unlock the power – and understand the constraints – of this seeming labyrinthian workflow.
