BIM Component Creation

Parametric Components

All BIM software rely on parametric modelling capabilities. At Techture, we put in special efforts to develop Revit families and custom components in other software. The geometry of these objects can be easily changed simply by changing the values of parameters.

Just the right details

A family with a lot of extra detail can consume a lot of memory and make the project model slow. We use specific workflows to ensure that families have the correct level of detail inside them and they can further be used to extract information when in use in projects.

Standards Compliant

Our families are COBiE compliant and can be customized to incorporate the EIRs (Employer's information Requirements) into specific parameters. This ensures that the developed families are as per international standards and satisfy the project requirements.

"A BIM model is only as good as the millions of constituent components that it is made of."


Modeling of a component includes using commands in the Family Editor environment i.e creating shaped forms out of form tools, combining and putting together the derived components in logical sequence to create a presentable family that closely represents the object being represented.

Using the best family template to start the modeling with is generally the major/crucial decision, the type and category can be defined with respect to the component to be represented it as in the project environment.


BIM India
The use of basic commands like extrusion, sweep, blend etc combining these as solid and void forms to ensure the geometry of the component to matches the desired output. Cut/Join geometry of these overlapping forms, to achieve the geometrical relevance of the object being represented.


Providing parameters related to geometry, material and visibility to make the component flexible for use. Providing information related to the component including type, size, model number, URLs. Thus, when a family is loaded into a project the user can control how the family looks or behaves.


Clash Matrix
The LOD Matrix represents how a component is represented in a Project according to the LOD requirements of the client/project. The component can be represented as both 2D or 3D element, with varying detail levels, which can be chosen or modified during the Project Tenure, whereas LOI represents the Level of Information provided in the component which includes parameters like materials etc.


A complete database of the components created is maintained for all the disciplines like Architecture, Structure, MEP and interior. This database provides a single source of extracting the families to place or edit them as per the requirement and standards of the project.
