Revit Content Creation

At some point early in your Revit journey, you will discover you need content that is not “out of the box”. But learning how to create this content – referred to as Revit “families” – can be a daunting task. Much more complex than AutoCAD blocks, Revit families represent multiple versions of the same component. This 2-day Revit Content Creation course is your opportunity to master the skills needed to create flexible, powerful and information-rich Revit content for your company.
