Many organizations have made the choice to switch from 2D drafting like AutoCAD to 3D modeling like Revit. It is interesting to know that on many projects I have been involved Revit is a game changing building design and documentation software that allows you to leverage BIM across all phases and disciplines in the building life cycle. If the time is taken to implement and learn Revit, endless benefits individually and professionally can be enjoyed. These benefits include the ability to create intelligent 3D building models that can be used across all disciplines in the building design process, plus a competitive edge by producing quality projects that really stand out in the crowd.
The major part of using Revit effectively is the Families that we use to create the components within the models, to meet the specific needs of the project. When I first started using Revit, I had a hard time understanding the term Revit Families. Now I realise how important Revit Families are, especially when creating a complex structure.
I recently attended the ANZRS Families Creation training course. This training has enhanced my skills to build custom and more complex Revit Families.
