Revit Family and Model Guide

This is an interesting idea. I always preach about how it is important to use and create smart families. Families that are parametric and look correct in all views. Families that content all the necessary information for all types of studies (heat, energy, cooling, light, etc..).

Well Autodesk released a Guide for Family creation. I have not looked at every family and PDF inside yet but the ones I looked at are promising. Take a look at the PDF's and models. They will help a beginner more fully understand a family and family creation as well as a novice enhance his or her families....

"DESCRIPTION

The purpose of the Revit Model Style Guide is to define Autodesk guidelines and standards for model creation in Revit® Architecture, Revit® MEP, and Revit® Structure.

LIMITATIONS

All sample family and project files were created based on the Revit Platform 2009 release; therefore, they can’t be opened in earlier versions of Revit."
