Improving Family Performance

Do

There is a very simple method that can be employed to improve family performance when loaded in a project, the technique makes it much easier for Revit to "draw" views as it doesn't have to calculate anything with regards to cutting through the family's geometry.

Reference Planes in Families

Do

When creating parametric families we've found that the best way to control the dynamic geometry is to create a skeleton of reference planes to which dimensional parameters are attached. Once the skeleton works as expected we create geometry that we attached and lock to the reference planes.

Rejoin Broken Duct and Pipe

CAD Shack

It happens. You delete a VAV box or valve and you want to rejoin two sections of duct or pipe. It’s just not very intuitive how so you end up stretching or redrawing. There is actually a function for rejoining although I don’t think it is widely used or known.
