What is the difference between our templates and the templates you get from Revit out of the box. Watch this short video and see some of the differences that will save you time, and help you be more productive.
You might be wondering why are we selling Revit Templates. Well from time to time I work with larger Architectural companies and give them a little more horse power when they need it. One time I was asked to come in at the end of a project and help wrap it up. I thought this would be an easy little project. But because they didn't even have standard views at correct scales, there were no sheets set up, and they didn't have standard components our fee was twice what it should have been.
Now I know that firms all have their different standards, so what use can this template be? First there is ton of content. You will see some of it in the video and more in the images below. We have loaded the most used content that our firm uses so that you will be ready to go right from the gates. There is no searching around the internet for inconstant content, get everything you need here on this site. Second, our sheets, and views are set up at the right scale and ready to plug-in and play. Finally, components are set up the way they would be constructed in the field. This will help with creating your construction documents.
One thing I missed in the video is showing how many annotation symbols and other families we have that are not under the drop down component button. Take a look at one example, the annotation symbols.

When you are designing a living room, what do you think off, and how do you design? I often find myself asking these questions:
The answer to these questions may come in many forms. Should there be: a loveseat, a sectional, a sofa? How many individual seats are needed? How should they be orientated? How long should the sectional be? With almost limitless possibilities going back and forth between the content browser to find the right pieces can be a drag. Especially if you are experimenting with many different arrangements.
