Revit Family

The phrase Revit families immediately conjure up images of furniture and interiors. You are probably wondering what Revit families have to do with the building design. Revit Families make building design easier, composing of different types of Revit families, there are System families, Modelling families, Loadable Families and Annotation families. Revit-based parametric BIM (Building Information Modelling) tools have had a significant impact on the AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) industry. Revit families have driven the progress of this industry with their range of components, the ease with which those components can be manipulated, their cache of accurate data and the resultant savings in time and cost. The diverse and significant building components of Revit families are necessary for the creation of accurate 3D models. Effective and accurate families contribute to the successful and timely completion of BIM modelling projects. Revit Family modelling contributes 4 top benefits including increase accuracy, Flexibility, Easier Modification and Savings of time and effort. In conclusion, Revit family creation is at the very foundation of architectural 3D modelling and MEP modelling in the AEC industry. Revit family creation increases the accuracy of the project models, enables variations of types of components and changes on those variations and saves time and effort spent on recreating this data for future use. As a result of these advantages, AEC projects ultimately see significant benefits from these cost-effective processes.​
