Hello fellow reviteers.
.
I have always enjoyed using www.revitcity.com and thought I would share my latest video tutorial series.
.
I just put together a sweet REVIT Training Video series that I'm sure most of you will find of value.
.
This is great for all levels of REVIT users who want to learn some cool things about making families.
.
In the videos I create an architectural beam with some abutments (for lack of better word). The lessons learned over the course of these 7 videos should get the wheels turning and can then be used to further you own REVIT family creation ideas.
.
This is a well organized, step by step process that will (hopefully) get you on the right track in making your own exciting new REVIT families.
.
We learn about:
.- The linear model family and associated template
.
- View Range
.- Parameters and parameter types.
- Reference Planes.
- Dimensions to parameters.
- Solid extrusions.
- Sketching.
- Work Planes.
- Aligning, locking and constraining the solid geometry.
- Flexing the model in the family editor and in the project  .
- Using the very cool Yes / No parameter to control individual family geometry visibility.
- Integrating Model Lines with your solid geometry.
- Using the Linework tool to get sneaky and fine tune the family within the project.
- Mental Ray Materials.
- Rendering.
- Adjusting the rendered image.
- Saving and exporting the Rendered image.
- Lots more, but let's get at it . . . .
.
* I should also mention the new 'Intermission' slide in the middle of the videos where I am now selling advertising within the videos.
.If you or your company are interested in advertising please get in touch as these videos are downloaded by the 1000's all over the world.
.
You can click the links below to play the video(s) or right click and 'saves target as. . ." to download and share.
.
- Also, when drawing the completed beam family in the project make sure you set your placement method to 'Work Plane' and not 'Face' (see attached image)
.
Also, make sure you adjust your 'view range' as instructed if you place it in a plan view.
.
Please Enjoy and Learn !
.
Lesson 1: The Completed Beam Family Introduction
.
.
Lesson 2: Parameters and Reference Planes
.
.
Lesson 3: Modeling the Main Beam and Flex
.
.
Lesson 4: Modeling the Abutments and Flex
.
.
Lesson 5: Using Yes / No Parameters to Control Object Visibility
.
.
Lesson 6: Use Model Lines and the Linework Tools
.
.
Lesson 7: Mental Ray Materials and Rendering
.
