Revit families are perceived to be significant building components that are necessary to create an accurate 3D model. With the use of effective families, the BIM modeling projects can be completed successfully.
Revit or design professionals use the family editor to create Revit families use family. Family editor is a graphical model integrated into Revit.

The families developed by the design professionals or technicians are also used in multiple projects. BluEnt has ensured that its team members are experts and have great knowledge of all the technicalities connected to the Revit family development process.
Revit families are categorized as system families, loadable families and in-place families. System families are predefined in Revit and cannot be loaded by users. However, with the help of ‘Transfer Projects standards command’, the design can be used in multiple projects. Loadable families are created by technicians using the family editor. Loadable families can be saved in external files and loaded in Revit projects as and when required. Then we have the in-place families that are developed by Revit professionals as per client’s required specifications. Clients define the requirements like size, materials, dimensions etc. and these are then used to create families. Know more about our 3D Rendering Services

Higher levels of accuracy
This is one of the benefits that Revit Family is most popular for in the AEC industry. With the assistance of the dimension tool in Revit, the exact and specific dimensions are given to the various components of the family. When the Revit technicians draw the geometry of the family, Revit automatically administers and assigns dimensions to the family.
Meets specific project requirements effortlessly
At BluEnt, the design professionals can develop any size families, depending on the project. The technicians and engineers use reference plans and lines when creating families in Revit family editor. The reference plans act as the guidepost for professionals to create family geometry. The family editor helps the professionals to construct both parameters and constraints.
2D and 3D families created in Family Editor can be both parametric and non-parametric. Parametric families enable variations in both materials and sizes that are taken and edited in parameters. Multiple types of parametric variations can be stored in a single family as types. For example, a piece of pieces of furniture such as say a dining table or a bed can be created in 4 different materials and 4 different sizes. Non-parametric families do not have dimensional values that enable size editing, they are unique in both shape and size.
Smoother rectification process
The families can be easily altered, modified or even changed by the employees to meet the specific requirements of the project. This benefit allows the designers and engineers in constructing the buildings with utmost precision.
Saves time and efforts
The fact that any specification can be easily modified or changed is a boon as the team doesn’t need to utilize a huge amount of time on rectifications. The family components can be used in different projects which saves a great amount of time and effort for the entire team.
The use of Revit families has helped BluEnt in increasing efficiency and saving project expenses to a great extent. Revit family has allowed the team to deliver the most effective doors, bathroom, fixtures, showers, windows to the clients.
The bottom line is that with the use of Revit Families BluEnt is now proficient in delivering high-end Revit 3D modeling services to clientele around the globe. To know more about our BIM and other services write to us.
