We Provide Revit Family Creation Services with Speed and Accuracy

As a Revit Family Creation Service Provider, we understand the Revit Family requirements of Building Product Manufacturers & Construction Product Manufacturers very well – fully parametric, higher degree of visual fidelity, lightweight, detailed, and graphical for the digital catalog which they can deliver to their end clients i.e. the A&D fraternity for the product selection as well as to carry out space planning and cost analysis.

We can create parametric & standard 2D/3D AutoCAD & 3D Revit Families with parameters such as materials & finishes, dimensions, and identity data, three levels of details – coarse (LOD 100-200), medium (LOD 300) and fine (LOD 400-500) and construction & 3D views. The services include developing Revit families and AutoCAD files for all types of building & construction products – roofing, electrical, furniture, flooring, masonry, stone, siding, etc. in the required software version such as Autodesk’s Revit 2018/2019/2020/2021.

All we require is a specification sheet/product cut sheet, sketches or even from files provided in IFC, Solidworks, Fusion 360, InfraWorks, 3DS Max, SketchUp, etc. If 2D CAD drawings in AutoCAD are available, then we can create Revit families from it or we can develop drawings files in 2D/3D AutoCAD (.dwg) format as well as Sketchup (.skp) format along with 3D Revit family files.

We have experience of creating Revit families for architecture firms for their hotel brand projects (Marriott, IHG, and Hilton). The experience includes developing hundreds of Revit families & 2D/3D CAD files for furniture, furnishings, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, communication equipment, and specialties for the guest rooms and public spaces.

Our Design Practices While Developing Revit Family for Building Product & Construction Product Manufacturers

Commonly found concerns

Through our best known practices we address the 3 biggest concerns associated with Revit Family:

  • Stability – Revit family visually “falls apart” when switching between the Family Types.
  • Dimensional accuracy – Revit family has incorrect dimensions such as length, width, height
  • File size – Family file size becomes too heavy impacting project performance and file exchange

Good design practices that we follow

  • Lean family template – develop custom “lean” Revit family templates to reduce overall file size
  • Product variations – create a family type catalog (.txt) if product has more than 5 variations otherwise build the Family Types directly into the Revit Family
  • File size – create lightweight families from scratch
  • LOD – include 3 levels of detail: Coarse (LOD 100-200), Medium (LOD 300)  & Fine (LOD 400-500)  in family components
  • Test
    • Visibility test – test a family within a Revit Workset – configured project to verify visibility, project performance and coordination
    • Dimensional test – make sure every Revit family is dimensionally “flexed”
  • Standards – embed industry standard metadata –
    • MasterFormat Title & Number, OmniClass Title & Number,
    • Assembly Code/Uniformat Classification Code,
    • LEED Credit / Recycled Content Parameters,
    • ADA / Barrier Free Certifications, ANSI, UL. etc
