Creating the right Text and Label types also takes some time. What really complicates things are Shared Parameters, both during creation of the Title Block and its everyday use.

We went over, concepts, tools and process

There wasn’t really anything truly new in this family hour; however, we are starting to expand past the basic family creation tools and rules. When building title blocks in Revit, most companies import and explode their AutoCAD title bock. This is ok, so long as you follow this process: Import CAD file, build Title Block Linework and Text, Copy and Past the Linework and Text into a new Title Block Family. When you explode a CAD file, you insert, Text / Linetypes / Hatch Patterns / Materials. By Copying and Pasting only want you need into an title block family you lose all that extemporaneous data.
