This Month’s Topic : “Family Creation”

Speaker: Philip Chan (Revit/BIM specialist at WGW Architects)

• As design professionals, the design process keeps changing from various stages, how do we deal with the issue when the stock of the box families is nearly not enough?
• We will discuss the pros and cons on free content (manufacturer supplied or by user like Revitcity) versus the content specifically made for architect’s office.
• Case study demonstration on the limitation/challenge with downloaded content and on the challenge of developing your own families.
• Step-by-step demonstration on creating a complex family.

Open Discussion
