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.

Rendering Pro - Karam Baki Shows How to Make a Photo-Real Rendering - Render Them Speechless

While studying architectural engineering at the University of Jordan (JU), he also works as a freelancer, creating a lot of projects for the university and for various other clients. This week, Baki will walk us through his process for developing his “Golden Mixed Use” project for the university. The project site is located in Amman, Jordan and uses the golden ratio (1.618) as a main generator of the design. “Rendering in cloud was very helpful even in the very early phases of the project,” Baki states. “Usually we start a project with a mass, and here, we were able to render each mass transformation in the cloud very quickly and efficiently, within the site’s surrounding area. So how does Baki achieve those impressive rendering results? 2. Customize Revision Number - LEARNING REVIT. By default, the revision number is the sequence number in the Revision Schedule.

Customize Revision Number - LEARNING REVIT

Revit will assign the first revision as sequence #1. But what if you need to start your revision number as a different number other than 1 per your client’s request, for example ‘0’? It is embarrassing if we have to explain to our client that your request cannot be done because Revit doesn’t allow us to do so. Fortunately, there is a way to get around this, it is not the perfect solution, but will definitely get you the end result you wanted. Remember, our goal is to serve our client, Revit has a tool helping us to provide the service to meet our client’s need, we are not a slave of the software. Revit Tutorial - Creating Exploded Axons (Advanced Displaced View Techniques) Exploded Axonometric (or, "axon" for short) images have made somewhat of a comeback in both construction documents and presentations.

Revit Tutorial - Creating Exploded Axons (Advanced Displaced View Techniques)

Personally, I believe BIM has a lot to do with it. The fact that an exploded axon has the ability to show all of the great 3D work done in a model makes it a favorite of model creators. Additionally, clients and owners (and those with an "un-trained eye") seem to understand these views better than 2D floor plans and elevations. Fortunately, Autodesk introduced "Displaced Views" back in Revit 2014.

Revit Products

The view range is a set of horizontal planes that control object visibility and display in the view. The horizontal planes are Top, Cut Plane, and Bottom. The top and bottom clip planes represent the topmost and bottommost portion of the view range. The cut plane is a plane that determines at what height certain elements in the view are shown cut. These 3 planes define the primary range of the view range. View depth is an additional plane outside of the primary range. By default, the view depth is coincident with the bottom. Example The following image shows the view range of a plan view from an elevation view standpoint: Top , Cut plane , Bottom , Offset , Primary Range , and View Depth The following image shows the actual plan view for this view range. Elements outside of the view range do not display in the view. How are elements drawn with respect to the view range? Example Additional View Range Rules.
