Project Performance | Revit Family File Size vs Visibility Settings

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Mar 13, 2016 7:41:00 AM

Which of these processes has the biggest impact on the performance of a Revit Project?

1. Revit Family File Size? OR...

2. Revit Family Visibility Settings?

While both are significant, our tests have found setting the correct Revit Family Visibility Settings for the project's Revit families has a larger impact on the Revit Project performance.

Bradley Revit Family Components Feature Coarse-Medium-Fine Detail Levels

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jun 3, 2011 9:24:47 AM

After downloading a Bradley Revit Family, review the model's Detail Level [Coarse-Medium-Fine] in a Revit project file.

Review the level of detail displayed in each Revit model view: elevation, plan and section views.

  • You will see more detail in these views as you cycle through your view settings of Coarse-Medium-Fine.
  • We realize that smaller print scales (1/8" = 1'-0"), require less detail (COARSE) for better print outs.
  • As you create views for larger print scales (enlarged plans, interior elevations); Bradley Revit Families provides more detail that will remain legible with heavier pen settings.

Each component (symbolic line, model line, solid, masking region) in a Bradley Revit Family, is assigned a detail level and visibility setting. They are fully customizable, so you can match our Revit components to your Revit-BIM graphic standards.

Revit Rendering and Walk-Through Tip

BEFORE you render a Revit View or play/export a Revit Walk Through, please set the view's Detail Level to FINE to view all of the 3D components inside the Bradley Revit family.

Bradley has more than 850+ Revit Plumbing Fixtures and Specialty Equipment family models in the Bradley Revit Family Library.
