    This class presents several custom families that incorporate structural engineering within the families themselves. By integrating engineering into custom families, a structural engineer can capitalize on more features of Revit Structure to aid in the engineering design process. The families demonstrate several tools within the Family Editor, including nesting, formulas, conditional statements, reporting parameters, and visibility settings. In a companion class, SE1592: Incorporating Engineering into Revit® Structure: Project Procedures, these families and all of their features are demonstrated within the project environment.

    Key Learnings

    • Incorporate engineering into Revit Structure
    • Use formulas and conditional statements in structural families
    • Use advanced family creation techniques to enhance the structural engineering capabilities of 2D and 3D families
    • Use reporting parameters and nesting techniques in structural families
