Family Editor Interface

Family Editor Interface



Family Editor Interface is a simple tool which gives a more interactive way of creating or editing Family Content. It gives a more visual control over the Family Bone-Muscle-Skin paradigm through manipulating the existing parameters within the Family Editor. Only usable in Family Editor Mode, it will allow the user to change parameter values on the fly, thus receiving immediate feedback on their actions. 


The tool will detect when new parameters are added to the Family Types dialog and has additional 'Refresh Document' button to detect when new parameters are added on the fly. 'Refresh Document' is also useful when toggling between several different Family Projects.

  • Revit below v2023 cannot use this tool.
    晓玮 吴 | April 13, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great tool!

    However, it can only be used in 2023, and errors will be reported in other versions.

    Would you please help me to fix the problem?

    I particularly need a function that can replace Chinese parameter names.When I use this to add Chinese parameter names,it always has a red border  and   Modification failed。

  • confimration pop-up
    Anton Jubani | March 08, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I have used this addon for over 2 years and i found it great. the latest updates have a pop-up screan confirming the action. In general very few people would read it and i think its an extra click wasted, especially when you want to randomly test the family by shiffeling the parameters/

    Can the confirmation screen be removed please?

  • Great tool! but one comment...
    Chris Hutchings | February 22, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    this is a awesome tool, although I use a 'Currency' parameter as a issuing date, and having it filled out before i use the tool allows me not to use it because im outside a maximum number range. e.g 20170221.01. i can use it if i delete this value. cheers!

    Dear Chris, I apologize for this ridiculously slow reply - I just saw your comment. There are a number of bug fixes that I am planning to roll out soon. The use of this plugin is still not optimal in Families with large number of parameters and when switching between projects, both scenarios of which are quite common. I'll let you know the moment the new version is out. Best Regards

  • Thanks
    Tamás Máró | January 13, 2017

    Hello, that was my dream driving the value of parameter that way. Is it possible to amend the global parameter too?

  • Time saver

    A very nice Tool when making families. A thing that could make it even better was removing the non moveable slides (Heat transfer, wall closure etc.) Using Revit 2015
