Revit Architecture Family Creation Training Course



The primary objective of this course is to teach delegates best practice in creating in-place families, component families, and system families. The course will go through the complete process of each introducing the user to the fundamentals as well as some clever tips.

The delegate should have Revit experience in Revit Architecture. It is recommended that delegates have a working knowledge of Microsoft operating systems.


I would have no hesitation in recommending highly either Revit or Cadline.

I would like to express my thanks for the professionalism and service extended to me throughout my involvement with Cadline and most especially the excellent training provided by Cadline, who are extremely knowledgeable about both the product and the practical application of the software. I know these sentiments are fully endorsed by all of the attendees on the course. I would have no hesitation in recommending highly either Revit or Cadline.

Very informative course and delivered excellently. It was a thorough overview of the Revit software and varied processes within it.
