    Maybe you know the power of Revit software's Family Editor but you've avoided it, or it's intimidated you until now. Wait no more. This lab will introduce you to the basics of Family Editor. Once you get past being intimidated, you will find that while Family Editor is extremely powerful, it can actually be great fun. In this short introduction to Family Editor, we'll create a Revit component family complete with constraints and parameters. Don't worry if you don't know what a constraint or parameter is-we'll cover that too. Whether you've never worked in Revit software before, or you've used Revit for a while but you've simply avoided Family Editor, this lab will teach you the basics of the Family Editor in a simple step-by-step fashion, and in the best way possible: hands-on! (The session will use architectural examples, but the concepts apply to all of the flavors of Revit software, including Revit LT software.)
