In-Place Family Warning

In-Place Family Warning

Digitally signed app



If you have ever had to work with in-place families in Autodesk® Revit®, you know that they are tough to deal with. Everyone has their reasons for making them, but sometimes far too many are created. This add-in will offer a virtual “hand slap” to remind people that this tool needs to be used purposefully. This is also done with a fun reference to a popular 90s movie.


The Parallax In-Place Family Warning plugin installs as an application-level add-in and requires no user interaction. it simply launches when an In-Place family is attempted. If the user chooses to continue, the popup will no longer appear for the rest of that Revit session. (This tool initially had a password, but completely locking users out isn’t our style.)

    Geat app for harmlessly shaming those naughty in-place families!
