Chapter 5. Customizing System Families and Project Settings in Your Template
In this chapter, we'll dig into customizing the Revit system families (see Chapter 2, "Revit Fundamentals," for a definition of system families) so that you can make your office templates exactly as you need them. Knowing how to adapt the system families—by using view templates, type catalogs, and other global project settings—and include them in templates can save you headaches early in the design process. In addition, the documentation process will be a lot easier because the assemblies are created correctly from their inception.
In this chapter, you'll learn to:
Create new types of system families
Use type catalogs
Customize project settings in your template
