There’s been a lot of talk recently about scaling families in Revit. This was perhaps first stirred up last year by Marcello Sgambelluri in a blog post that stated, contrary to popular belief, that families could indeed be scaled. This was followed by various posts from others (including Andy Milburn, Kelvin Tam, and Paul Aubin). This topic also came up in a couple of classes at RTC Australasia last month, with detailed step by step processes discussed. I’ve listed links in chronological order to some of the articles:
Whilst this might be quite new and exciting for some Revit users, I believe that its various uses are quite limited. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s amazing what the Revit community can achieve when we put minds to it! I have to say though that I wouldn’t want Revit users at my work implementing these techniques in 99% of our families. They can go for it on that other 1% though!
