Course Description

Autodesk Revit Families The Complete Guide is designed to give you a thorough introduction to Revit Families, from basic 2D Symbols to complex 3D Nested Families. By using predefined families and creating new ones in Revit, you can add both standard and custom elements to your building models. Families also provide a level of control over elements that are similar in use and behavior, allowing you to easily make design changes and manage your projects more efficiently.

For example, the structural members, walls, roofs, windows, and doors that you use to assemble a building model, as well as the callouts, fixtures, tags, and detail components that you use to document it, are all created with families.

Autodesk Certification Objectives: The “!” Symbol indicates an Autodesk Certification Exam Objective. Focus on these areas to prepare for your certification exam.
