I'm trying to modify this revit family: http://www.revitcity.com/downloads.php?action=view&object_id=11229 to add louvers instead of the glass it currently has, but I'm completely new to family editing and have no idea how to go about it.

I don't need the louvers themselves to be parametric, just for them to adjust in width and count to fit the height of my door, and i could even do without the height adjustment, as long as it works for a certain height. (All the panels I need to add will have the same height)

 

Doees anyone have any suggestions? I've looked for tutorials on how to do this but found none that are relevant to my issue Sad

"I don't need the louvers themselves to be parametric, just for them to adjust in width and count" This doesn't make sense, if you need it to adjust then you need it to be parametric.  If you look on youtube there are a lot of videos showing how to create parametric families.  You don't necessarily need one EXACTLY like what you are trying to do, you just need to understand the concept.  You should also read the Autodesk Families guide http://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/revit-products/troubleshooting/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/Autodesk-Revit-Architecture-Families-Guide.html

What I meant is I don't need to be able to adjust the blade length and/or thickness and/or spacing, and not even the number or width, if I can make them all a certain width that would work just as well.

So you just need to make extrusions then that is the length/width/quantity that you need.  If you don't know how to do that you need to read the families guide that I pointed you to.
