A question that comes up quite a lot is “How can I better organise the Project Browser in Revit, to suite the way that I (or my Team) work?”

Custom Project Browser Organisations in Revit - BIMscape

For those just starting out in Revit, The Project Browser is the “Explorer” panel that lists and organises all your Views, Sheets, Legends, Schedules, etc; in your current Revit Project. By default, the Project Browser is organised by simply sorting and grouping the Views, Schedules, etc; by Family and Type. This can clearly be seen in the above screen shot. All the Plan Views are grouped together. All the 3D Views are grouped together. So how else would we want to organise the Project Browser? The panel where you control this is a little hidden away, so let’s find it now. The last Ribbon Panel on the View menu is “User Interface”… If we click on the User Interface button, we will now find what we are looking for- that is the “Browser Organisation” settings… You will notice in the Screen Shot above how there are two main Tabs….

To create a family with nested and shared components, share the families before you nest them in a host family.

Create a Family with Nested and Shared Components

The host family does not need to be a shared family. When you create a nested family of shared components, the first decision you need to make is in what category the host family will belong. This decision has many downstream implications for tagging, scheduling, and ODBC information, as described in the examples below. Revit Families – Endless combinations with nested families and the Family Type parameter.

Have you ever created a Revit family that had several nested families in it that you wanted a simple drop down menu to give you the chance to choose which nested family you wanted?

Revit Families – Endless combinations with nested families and the Family Type parameter

Well, here’s a brilliant method for creating powerful nested families that seems to be difficult to find solid documentation on. I’d like to thank Bob for reminding me about this easy to use yet dynamic technique for controlling the visibility of nested families. Here’s the scenario: Let’s say you have a family (we’ll refer to this as the parent family) that contains several nested families that are possible options within it. For example, you might have a door family that consists of the frame and the opening, but that has several panel families nested into it. We want to make it easy for users to insert the door family, then choose the type of panel they want. This method works ok, but has some potential problems. Creating a Nested Family with Interchangeable Components. You can create families that feature interchangeable nested components when added to your projects.

Creating a Nested Family with Interchangeable Components

To control the type of family within a nested family, you create a family type parameter that can be either an instance or type parameter. After you label a nested component as a family type parameter, subsequently loaded families of the same type automatically become interchangeable without any further work. If you need the nested family components to tag and schedule individually, make sure each family that you load into the host family is shared. Architecture example. Revit Link: Revit Selection Box vs Coins Auto-Section Box. I have said it once, and I will say it again, I love my add-ons.

Revit Link: Revit Selection Box vs Coins Auto-Section Box

Top of the list would have to be COINS Auto-Section Box. I recently had to go without this tool for a week and let me tell you, I really noticed it. It makes sense that in a 3D environment, we are able to quickly and easily view any aspect of the model to analyse & navigate up close and Coins Auto-section box allows you to do just that. For Revit 2016, Autodesk has had an attempt at the same idea with the new ‘Selection Box’ (SB) tool found on the Modify ribbon, View Panel. Revit Tutorial - Site Designer Plugin. I attended a class about the Site Designer Plugin by Dan Rosenberg during RTCNA this year for the simple reason of understanding how to get the damn tool to work!

Revit Tutorial - Site Designer Plugin

For those of you who have attempted or used the Site Designer Plugin you may have found it to be anything but intuitive. Well, Dan was able to break it down and make it at least work. For that, I was glad I attended the class. The concept behind the Site Designer plugin is fantastic. Revit Planting Catalogue. Revitarch10 whitepaper conceptual design modeling.

Creating families for use in the various Autodesk Revit software packages is an important aspect of implementing and effectively utilizing Revit within an organization.

Revit Family Reference Planes IsReference Property

While users that create Revit families are familiar with using Reference Planes to drive the geometry within the family, many users do not understand the purpose of the Is Reference property. This article will look at the various options for the Is Reference property and their purpose. The Is Reference property is pertinent to how the family will be dimensioned when it is loaded and placed in a project. Characteristics of Revit Reference Lines. Autodesk Revit contains both Reference Planes and Reference Lines, but it seems that most people do not understand or utilize Reference Lines.

Characteristics of Revit Reference Lines

While Reference Lines are used as control lines for information within a family similar to Reference Planes, they are not a type of Reference Plane. It is its own type of object designed for a separate purpose. Basically, you should use Reference Lines instead of Reference Planes when you need defined endpoints for a work plane. Jarod Schultz: Revit Wall/Face Based Family Trick. In this click saver I want to talk about a Revit Family Trick that hopefully will save you some headaches today or maybe sometime in the near future.

Jarod Schultz: Revit Wall/Face Based Family Trick

When working with clients there has been times someone has created a family using the “Generic Model Wall Based.rft” and now realize they should have made it using the “Generic Model Face Based.rft” family instead. Without knowing this little trick it usually meant that someone had to rebuild the family again, which is a real bummer and no one wants to do that. So how does one convert a “Wall Based.rft” to “Face Based.rft” or another question might be how does one know if a family is “Wall Based” or “Face Based”? So open one of your “Wall Based.rft” or “Face Based.rft” families and pick on the “Family Category and Parameters” button. At the bottom using the scroll bar you will see “Host” and it will either say “Wall” or ”Face” depending on which family template it was created from.

The middle, opening part is taken from photographs of doors that exist today in the Bank Museum (the reconstructed Stock Office). The surround is based on a drawing of Soane's and a 1920s photograph of the Colonial Office. I had made the surround rather crudely, and the whole thing was a fixed size with no built-in modularity. So I decided to make this slightly more robust and parametric, then go on to build more doors with interchangeable components to allow for more variety and flexibility. A fully parametric version would be quite demanding, but making parametric moulding profiles for the segmental pediment is perfectly doable. Modeling. Hi All, Just want to share a little tips & tricks with you. One of my users was trying to create some openings touching the bottom of a wall foundation with continuous footing. The methods that he used to create the openings were: 1) Wall Opening tool 2) Edit Profile on Wall Sketch He then went to the Wall Foundation Type Properties and try to use the "Do Not Break At Inserts" parameter:

This is one of the questions that I get a lot - Most would say that the answer is no, since there´s no build-in "Visible" parameter for Voids, as the case is for solids. But if you follow a few simple steps, the answer is actually YES - It CAN be done :-) 1.

Create two extra ref. planes to control the void height (or depth, or whatever you´re after) 2. Lock one of those to a given distance from the solid (in this case 500 mm´s) 3. Dimension and label the distance between those two ref. planes (Length parameter names "Void Height" 4 Create the Void, and lock the top and bottom to the two ref. planes. 5. In the above example, I´m assuming that you need to cut all the way thru a solid with the height parameter "Solid Height" MSG MOULDINGS. Case Study#3 Part A: A modular facade in Revit. We are working on a project where the facade will be a prefabricated modular facade, where the modules will arrive at the construction yard ready to be mounted on to the slabs. Since the modules contains everything from exterior cladding, exterior shading, insulation, interior wall cladding, there will be no need to do anything more with the facade after every module have been mounted.

The reduced construction time at the construction yard is one of the reason it is getting more and more popular with prefabricated modular facades. It is also getting increasingly popular because of reduced cost and increased precision. James Vandezande’s Videos on Vimeo. Glossary.
