The Easy Way to Find and Place Revit Families and Views!

Family and View Studio for Revit

You didn’t get into this career because you wanted to grope around trying to find stuff.

Have you ever run into any of the following in Revit?

When needing to find one particular family or view out of hundreds, sometimes you are not sure what to try first.

You spend too much time searching and the results are
often disappointing

You’re struggling with how limited Revit’s search capabilities are.

You have to exit the search function to verify that you’ve selected the correct family.

You wish you didn’t have to look for a Revit® file (library) that might contain the view you need, only to be forced to browse through them all in hopes you find it.

You wish you could search for — and see a list of — all the families or views that match your search.

You wish you could identify families with custom tags.

You wish you could choose your own thumbnail for a family.

You have to stop and look at every matching family in Revit’s Project Browser, wasting a lot of time.

You wish you could search for and list only the families or views that match your search.

You wish you could easily search for and find the right families or views that are stored in other projects.

You wish you could search for — and see — large thumbnails of all the families or views that match your search.

Pro Tools for Revit Families and Views!

Working with families and views is much easier, more intuitive and saves you a boatload of time.

You’ll know exactly how and where to start searching for families and views.

You’ll have expanded search capabilities that easily find exactly what you’re looking for.

You won’t have to exit the search function or browse to a different file to verify that you’ve selected the correct family or view.

You can see, at once, all the families or views that match your search, instead of looking through families or views one at a time.

You can search for and display only the families or views that match your search criteria instead of displaying everything that is even a vague match.

You can use the powerful and focused search capabilities to find families and views outside of your active Revit project and easily load them.

Once you've found a family, you can easily place or duplicate and rename the family type.

You can use the large thumbnails of views to easily determine which is the one you want.

Once you’ve found a view, you can easily place it in
your project.

New Release: Family and View Studio Version 7.0

Benefits that the new version of Family and View Studio™ adds for you:

Version 7.0 answers the popular demand for an ability to search for Revit views inside or outside your active project. Now you can toggle between “Families” and “Views,” add tags to your families and use custom thumbnails to help you find exactly what you need — even faster.

Navigating your project file or “library” of views is a breeze — resulting in ease of use and massive time-savings for you!

Working with family can be tough.

Working with Revit families can be even tougher.

We know that the process of searching for families in Revit is frustrating, and finding what you want often takes longer than you’d like.

With the all-new Family and View Studio for Revit, that frustration is gone, plus you’ll save a ton of time because finding exactly what you’re looking for is fast and easy.

Family and View Studio takes the pain and drama out of families — at least, out of Revit families!

Wish You Could Actually See Your Darned Revit Views at a Glance?

We know that storing views in a Revit project file and calling it a “library” is common practice. But finding the right view is still a challenge and there has to be a better way.

Well, you asked and we listened!

With the all-new Family and View Studio for Revit, you can see those views the way they were meant to be seen. And that will save you plenty of frustration and tons of time.

What to expect from Family and View Studio:

You can search either within an open Revit project — or outside of it — and only display the families or views that match your search criteria.

You can choose whether your search criteria looks for families by:

  • category,
  • family name,
  • family type,
  • parameter name,
  • parameter value,
  • or any combination of these options.

You can easily view all the types of the family or views you’ve searched for and found, instead of having to navigate them one at a time in the browser.

You can view all the parameters for the family selected, with the option to hide empty parameters.

You can tag families with whatever words you prefer to help you organize them or make them easier to find
next time.

You can have a family or view loaded into your active Revit project (.rvt) file.

You can duplicate any type in a loaded family.

You have the ability to rename any type in a
loaded family.

You have more control and can choose to display (or not display) families or views with the same name in your search results.

Double-clicking on a family in the search results list (or the types list in the Details panel) will now place an instance of the selected type.

Drag and drop your family or view from the search results into your project.

You have the ability to edit parameter values in
loaded families.

You can select and use a custom thumbnail for a family.
