Building a Parametric Tree in Revit
by Kelvin Tam
In this course, we will learn to create a parametric Revit tree family. Software required: Revit 2014.
What you'll learn
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.

Kelvin is an architect, the Studio BIM Lead, as well as the Revit coach in an architecture office in Columbus Ohio. He is highly involved in setting up standards and protocols for the firm's... more BIM implementation. Holding a B.S. in Environmental Design from the College of Architecture at the University of Houston and a B. Arch from SCI-Arc, Kelvin has a very strong design sensibility and is bringing design and technology together in the practice of architecture. Kelvin is a speaker at a number of BIM/Revit conferences including Autodesk University, Revit Technoloy Conference North America, and Revit Technology Conference Australasia.
