REVIT FAMILY CREATION
Revit Family Creation Services
BIM objects are a family of intelligent virtual 3D objects that provide detailed information of a product or component about its physical characteristics such as its geometry and visual graphical representation. The BIM object simulates the real-world behavior and specifications in exactly the same way as the product itself enabling it to be used in the BIM model of the project in which it is to be utilized. Product manufacturers usually embed the BIM objects in the product catalogs which are subsequently used by the project engineers and architects searching for the specific product.
Every object embeds a set of metadata such as product literature, standard details, technical datasheets, NBS specifications, model number and warranty information. There are two types of BIM objects namely, components object and layered objects. The component objects are product models which have a distinct 3D geometry such as windows, doors, boilers etc. Layered objects or material objects are products models that do not have a distinct geometry or size such as carpets, roofing, walls, and ceilings.
Custom revit family creation is the process of creating a library of building products or mechanical components, mostly commonly using Autodesk Revit platform such that any change to a family type is updated and reflected instantly throughout the project which uses that family type, eg, if the dimensions of a window type is changed, all the windows of same family are instantly updated throughout the project. Such Revit families are known as Parametric Revit families. Usage of such intelligent or parametric families helps the project owner to maintain a centralized building information model for the project.
We provide standard as well as customized architectural library creation services for manufacturers, fabricators, architects and engineers for their product model catalogs, which can be downloaded directly by their customers from their websites.
Leveraging our expertise in Autodesk Revit and extensive experience in BIM, we provide a plethora of parametric and non-parametric family creation services for architectural and structural building components.
Once created, these BIM families can be used in various projects as required and can be modified at a later stage depending on the project requirements.
