Hi,

My name is Mike and I am looking to learn how to draw 3D families in Revit.  I am currently using Revit 2013.  Any advice on videos, books, blogs, etc, would be appreciated. 

Thanks

Practice makes perfect... I am self taught and you can see how far I've come at the link in my signature. Start with simple modeling techniques and understand the use of reference planes. Then move on to creating simple parameters that allow your families to be flexible. Finally, put both those things together so you can create complex parametric families. That's about the simplest step by step process you'll hear but there's a lot to learn in between all those things.

Also, don't over build and keep your files as small as possible!

Good luck!

Don't worry that it says 2009.  Almost 100% of this is still applicable.  Read and study this before you go any furthur.
