REVIT 1/7/2020

The ability to set rotation parameters for an object in Revit is an important skill to know. It can be useful in all kinds of applications and allows you to add key functionality to a Revit object that doesn't quite reflect the flexible/rotational properties you want it to.

In the following video, Pete Heibel from the BIMsmith team gives an in-depth tutorial on how to add rotational parameters to nested geometry in Revit families. The video walks you through step-by-step how to set your rotating parameter by nesting the geometry that rotates within the parent family.
