Description

In this course, we will learn to create a parametric Revit tree family. Throughout these lessons we will learn about the family behavior of a tree. We will learn to create the leaf as an adaptive component family. Also, we'll learn to create the branch as an adaptive component to which the leaf family is nested and repeated. Finally, we will learn to construct a tree family by nesting the branch family and repeating the instance along the rest of the tree. Software required: Revit 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
I'm Kelvin Tam. I am an architect and a BIM specialist in Columbus, Ohio. I have worked on a variety of BIM projects of building types including mixed use, healthcare, and sports. I have taught classes in a number of BIM conferences, including Autodesk University, with a technology conference in North America, and with a technology conference of in Asia. In this series of lessons we will learn how to use Autodesk Revit architecture to model a tree family, and this tree family is scalable, having the branches and the leaf parametric in quantity. Let's go ahead and get started.
