Revit software is a very powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) platform, but you can squeeze a lot more out of it by investing some time into your families. This class will take you over some innovating methods for making your Revit MEP software families more powerful and easier for your teams to use. Do you want to be able to use the information in your families in formulas but don't know where to start (Inconsistent Units!)? Do you have families that are difficult for users to configure because you need more than just a box? Do you use equipment that is so bespoke that you don't feel you can build a standard family for it? This class will show you how to overcome all of these issues and more so that you get more value out of the time you spend building Revit MEP software families.
