Custom Family Template

There are quite a number of standard family template for us to create families of different categories. However, are you able to create your own family template? The answer is - it is possible.

1. You may copy an existing family template say Generic Model. Rename it Custom Template.

2. Now this is the trick. Rename the template from .RFT to .RFA. This will allow you to edit the template file.

3. Customize your template file as required. Saved it and rename it back to .RFT.

4. Now when you create a new family, there will be a new template call Custom Template.
