One of the first things people do once they begin working with Autodesk Revit is expand the number of 'families' they have to work with.
These features are valuable additions to the program, and provide a greater number of components to use when designing structures. In many cases, these downloadable assets could provide the perfect part for a design that was missing something. At other times, they may offer entirely new materials to inspire the next stage of a project.
What are Revit families?
For easy sorting and use, families are divided up into parameters, allowing designers to group additional content in a way that makes it simple to find and implement. According to Autodesk, for example, a category labelled 'Furniture' will consist of a range of parts necessary to create tables, chairs or any other object categorised as such.
Because Revit is such an essential part of the building information modelling (BIM) process, it's important that designers have the tools and resources they need to get the most out of it. As a procedure, BIM is intended to encourage collaboration, eliminate cost overruns and greatly streamline the process of creating something.
Revit ships with a range of different families for designers to use, but it's wise to expand this resource collection where possible, broadening the scope of a design process.
