Our Revit Family Creation Services Focuses On
- Deliver the family with no warnings or exceptions
- Include standard types or type catalogs
- Organize data - types, instance shared parameters, materials, URL, etc.
- Aim to deliver family with a file size less than 1MB for ease of portability and website upload/download
- Include client requested Level of Details (100 to 500) in the family
- Label the most important reference lines as "Strong Reference" while the rest as "Weak/No Reference"
- Deliver clean family file - purge anything unnecessary
- Build and test family in a version that is required i.e. Revit 2020/2019/2018 etc.
Our Process to Create Revit Families
Create a new family file by selecting a .RFA (Revit family) file and a suitable family template.
Create Reference planes and Reference lines such as “Strong” or “Weak/No”
Set associated parameters, dimensions, & constraints to specify a parametric relationship
Select a reference plane, start generating geometry using the tools: Extrusion, Blend, Revolve, Sweep. Swept Blend and equivalent Void forms.
Lastly, flex the family to check if the parameters are working right and ensure it reacts the expected way.
Why Consider Revit Family Creation Services?
The biggest advantage of custom Revit BIM family or library is, any change to a family is updated and permeated throughout the project file where this particular family is being used. As a result, the biggest benefit is ‘Speed with Accuracy’ (along with the reduced cost of failure) for the project that can be achieved with Custom Revit Family Library.
It provides detailed information of a product or a component about its physical characteristics such as its geometry and visual graphical representation.
With our Revit Family Creation services, we can provide BIM Object/Content with required level of details i.e. LOD 100 to LOD 500. For facility management LOD500 is required which will have details such as manufacturer name, model name, serial number, purchase date, warranty, technical datasheet, product URL etc. through the “Identity Data”.
We can provide the Revit Family in following file format:
- .RVT (for Revit family)
- .RTE (for a standardized template)
- .IFC (for a compressed pdf version of the file)
Benefits of Revit Family Creation Services
Revit families are at the core of Revit, creating Revit Family is same as writing DNA code for an element. The biggest advantage of custom Revit BIM family or library is, any change to a family is updated and permeated throughout the project file where this particular family is being used. As a result, the biggest benefit is ‘Speed with Accuracy’ (along with the reduced cost of failure).
