How to export your project Revit Families to your local drive

I’m sure you’ll find the same procedure from Autodesk Knowledge Network when you Google the same topic.

After my 1TB Seagate external hard drive failed to work, I lost lots all my personal files and project-related references. Some of these files are the Revit families I created for some projects that can be re-use for my future Revit projects. Because of this, I decided to go back to those projects I worked with and start exporting copies of, not only specific families but all the families in that project to make it easy and quick.

So, let’s get started.

Once you have your Revit file open, go to:

File – Save As – Library – Family

Then you’ll be prompted where do you want to save your exported families. You may click on the “Documents” folder icon on the left to create your own folder. Keep the rest as default then click “Save”.

And in just a few seconds or minutes, you’ll have all the Revit families exported in your local drive.

Have a great day.
