Levels of Expertise

Please note: Beginner level presentations are not offered at RTC. We would qualify a beginner as someone who has no prior knowledge of the presentation topic. An example of this would be 'Introduction to the Family Editor'. Our expectation is that attendees will generally be of an Intermediate experience level or above.

Loving it! You have the basic tools under your belt, and are starting to push them to get ever more out of them. A general understanding of concepts related to the presentation topic is assumed, but detailed understanding of the specific aspects covered in the topic is not. Example: Advanced Parametric Families

You got this! General use of the program is no problem, and you are exploring the tools that others shy away from. The session is expected to explore specific, detailed, high-level and complex functionality and concepts. Example: Advanced Parametric Formulas in the Family Editor

You have long since beaten the software into submission, and are cruising along using all that the software has to offer. The session is expected to be innovative and forward thinking, exploring new areas and discussing best practice solutions. Example: Using Rhino and Excel to Create Family Type Catalogs

You live on the raw, bleeding edge of what your software can do, and only smile when it screams in protest and spits out results even the developers said it couldn't manage. If you don’t believe you could be teaching this class, it may not be for you.

OK, deep breath and… release!, as these sessions tend to focus on general principals and concepts that do not require deep and/or specific knowledge of tools. The sessions often take the form of forums, panel discussions, and the like, but also include lecture style sessions with a more theoretical / philosophical orientation.

Families In Motion: New and Exciting Methods That Make Your Revit Families Move
13:45 - 15:00
Coding, Content and Customisation
Intermediate

Speaker:
Marcello Sgambelluri

Have you ever built a family in Revit software and needed to create rotation and dimensional parameters because there were multiple moving parts? This class will show you how to create parameters within the Revit software’s massing, adaptive component, and traditional Family Editors so your families can move. Just some of the examples we will show include folding-door rotation, articulating booms on cranes, and swinging roof davits. Forget what you've learned about how to apply rotation and dimensional parameters to Revit software families. This lecture will show new and exciting methods that could be applied to most 2D and 3D Revit families. There will even be a portion of the lecture dedicated to simulating ball joint movement. The class is sure to be fun, exciting, and fresh.

Key Learning Objectives/Outcomes:

  • Learn to Create Rotation Rigs in Massing and Adaptive Component families to make rotation
  • Learn to create translation parameters in Massing and Adaptive Component families to make rotation
  • Learn to Create Rotation Rigs and translation parameters in Massing and Adaptive Component families to make 3D and 2D rotation possible
