New Revit Family Editor Course on

I am happy to report that the first of my two new Revit courses on is now available. The new course: Revit Architecture: The Family Editor includes an update to my Revit Family Editor Series DVD training and so much more!

The original DVD series covered the basics of the Family Editor for version 2010. This new course expands greatly on the material included in the original series and updates the material for 2012. The original series was approximately 4 hours in length. This new course is a whopping 6 hours and 44 minutes! In addition, the production quality available at is far superior to what was produced in the original series. Given changes made to the Family Editor since 2010, the higher quality and expanded table of contents, I think you will find the new course a very worthwhile update to the original.

    I am a member of Lynda, and loved the new series!

    One question I had was, how did you link a material parameter to the parametric arch? It doesn’t work the same as any of the other methods you described.

    Thanks in advance!

      Hi Josh:

      Thanks for the comment and for watching my course. The Brick Arch uses nested Generic Model Families for the different kinds of bricks. Each of these Families has a Type parameter for Material. So when you change the kind of brick, you also change the material.
      Look on the Project Browser, under Families and then under Generic Models. You’ll see the three types. Hope that helps.
