Hi everyone, my name is Fabio Sato and welcome to my Revit MEP fittings family creation course.

I am a BIM manager at Filippon Engenharia, an electrical and plumbing project company.
MEP fitting families can be very tricky, so I want to help you to understand how to create them.

In this course, you are going to learn;

  • The basic concepts behind family creation.
  • How to create a family using best practices.
  • The options for the geometry creation.
  • Set up the fittings use within Revit for a better workflow.
By the end of this course, you will know how to create your own fittings or customize the ones you already have.

Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Revit basic family creation, like a table.

I hope you will join me on this journey to learn how to create MEP fittings with the Revit MEP fittings family creation course, at Pluralsight.
