Free REVIT Videos - Custom Beam Families

REVIT comes installed with many beam families. The best way to create a custom beam family is to use an existing beam family and rename it. There are also predetermined Beam Family template files at your disposal.

In this tutorial series (amongst other things) we learn how to nest ‘profile’ families and parameters three levels deep to facilitate our project beam outcome. This ‘nested profile’ lesson on it’s own is extremely valuable and transcends to other REVIT family applications far beyond just beams. These lessons give you the tools to go forward and create your own custom beams.

    Behold all the answers in this CADclip tutorial series. I thought I knew it all myself until I was challenged in creating these lessons. These videos were produced using REVIT Architecture 2008 but the lessons learned here still apply to date.
