Tip Title:     Custom Family Templates

Product:      Revit

Author:       Glenn Sinclair – Technical Consulting Lead

 

Issue:

You need to create custom family templates, with additional info such as reference planes and origin points pre-defined.

 

Solution:

Any Revit family can have its file extension changed from .rfa to .rft in windows explorer, this will change it into a family template.

Anything that is included in the family template however, cannot be deleted later. Therefore in most cases it is best to only add things like reference planes and parameters to custom templates.
