Family Starter Kits - cont.

Unfortunately Revit doesn’t allow nesting the Profile in a label parameter which would allow you to change from the circle profile to a square profile. Hopefully this will come with time.
I can now simply load these families (I think of them as assembly parts), align them to reference planes, and presto I have a new Door Family very quickly.

Complete Door

Now, by using this method one can drastically reduce the time required to build families. This following screen door is an example of that. Completed in less than 15 minutes.
