Revit Families: Take a Look at Their Classification

Revit is incredible software which possess plethora of features which have improvised the design process for building projects. Revit is developed to deal with various disciplines with its separate software such as Revit Architecture, Revit Structure and Revit MEP. Revit family editor is the tool which is available in each Revit discipline which assists in developing different sorts of building components (families) including both small and gigantic.

These families can be of window, door, ducts etc. and those are immensely vital for developing Building Information Models for architecture, structure and MEP. Professionals have to be careful while the development of these families as one minute flaw can cost huge amount of money. Revit families comprises of three categories which are system families, loadable families and in-place families.

Systems families
Let’s look at the explanation of system families first which are a category of Revit families. These are by default installed components in this software and these cannot get altered. In other words, as System families cannot be edited by technicians, it is important that they are used in their original form in the project. With the help of ‘Transfer Projects standards command’ users can transfer these system families in multiple projects conveniently.

Loadable families
Loadable families are those components which can be created individually by drafters. Apart from that they can be saved as separate files and whenever required by Revit technicians they can be included in the project. This makes them exceptionally important for Revit modelers.

In-place families
In-place families are also important part of Revit families and they are created for developing extremely unusual building components such as home kitchen sink and furniture etc.
