•Create an instance of a family type in the project, or change the family type for an existing element.

•Use the Family Editor to make changes to existing families or to create new families.

•How to create a simple AC unit with duct, electrical, and pipe connectors. Beginning from a specific template supplied with Revit, using the tools in the Family. When we finish the family, it will be tested in a sample project before using it to create elements in the projects.

•How to create a custom family for gas systems used in some medical applications, start from placing a pipe connectors, adjust the diameter for each connector and the gas fluid for each pipe, then insert the family into the project. and create pipe system, and an appearance for each pipe.

Mechanical engineer
I am a mechanical power engineer, I worked at many disciplines: drawing, testing and balancing for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, maintenance of multiple different mechanical equipment. I’d like sharing knowledge with others and create an easy tutorials to understand. I hope all people can get knowledge easily. And all children have a good caring and peaceful place for living.
