Tutorial - Recessed Lighting Fixture

A quick tutorial in response to an email I received.

This tutorial addresses the issue of a recessed ceiling light (usually fluorescent) that is not built into the Revit families. It is very simple to make the typical 2 foot by 4 foot ceiling light that is seen in every acoustic tile ceiling.

Topics Covered:
  • Editing a Lighting Fixture Family.
  • Creating Parameters.
  • Editing Parameters.
  • Testing Parameters.
  • Aligning and constraining family elements.
