How to Insert a Face-Based Revit Family Into a Project | 3 Options

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Aug 29, 2016 8:30:00 AM

Some of the Bradley Revit Family Components are created as Face-Based families, so they will "attach" to wall, floor or ceiling surfaces.

Bradley does NOT create wall, floor or ceiling hosted Revit families. They are either stand-alone (non-hosted) or face-based families.

Bradley Revit-BIM Family Quality Standards | Top 10 FAQs

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Apr 2, 2016 7:46:00 AM

Each week Bradley clients; architects, engineers, contractors and facility owners contact our Revit-BIM Team with questions that ask;

"How are Bradley Revit families created?"

Here are the Top 10 Value Points that we share with them;

01) Extensive Division 10 & 22 Revit Library: Bradley's Revit Family Library currently has more than 1000 Revit family components representing thousands of Bradley plumbing fixture and specialty equipment products.

02) Documented-Proven Modeling Standards: We initially used the Revit Model Style Guide from Autodesk SEEK.

However, based on 10 years of actual Revit-BIM project experience, I rewrote and tripled the size of the original document. Bradley's new document better serves our clients' and the industry's evolving Revit-BIM project standards-practices.

Bradley BIM Team Targets Biggest Revit Family Quality Concerns

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Mar 18, 2016 5:53:00 AM

The Bradley BIM Team emphasis (target) for the Bradley Revit Family Library; has been

  • Revit Family-Type stability and

  • Revit Family dimensional accuracy.

How many times have you downloaded a Revit family, inserted it into your project and then it visually "falls apart" as you switch between the Family Types?

How many times has your downloaded Revit family been dimensionally wrong (length, width, height)?

Over the last 10 years, these are 2 of the biggest concerns Revit users have given for NOT using pre-built, user and/or manufacturer Revit families (including, my projects)

These 2 quality concerns were the main design targets of the Bradley Revit-BIM Team!
