Throughout these lessons, we will utilize Revit Architecture to create families that use advanced parameters and formula to add intelligent behavior. These behaviors will allow the families to adjust based on specific situations. By adding these types of behaviors this will allow for fast design iterations and the re-use of families, which translates to time saving design and tight control over family management. Software required: Revit 2015.
Introduction and Project Overview (Music playing) My name is Quintus Smit. I'm an Autodesk Certified Instructor and a lecturer for Inscape Education Group. I currently teach a subject called Computer Applications that teaches students how to efficiently present their designs and concepts using various software applications. I also facilitate training at various training centers on a freelance basis in Revit, 3ds Max, and AutoCAD. In this course, we are going to look at how to build intelligence into Revit families, optimize future workflows, and effectively manage design iterations. Some of the major topics that we will be discussing in this course will include creating adjustable parameters in Revit families, molding intelligence into families to make them adapt automatically to requirements, look at using 2D families instead of 3D ones, look at some of the family templates available and when to use them. By the end of the training, you'll be able to create your own custom families in Revit and be able to add intelligent parameters to make them adaptive and easy to change. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you. So, let's get started with the first lesson!
