Nicolas Catellier

Architect + BIM Specialist

While you are reading these lines, I am almost certainly thinking about Revit families.

I often see random objects on the street and wonder how they could be developed as a Revit family.

I have been teaching Revit and BIM for more than 7 years. I am known for creating Revit Pure and BIM Pure, where I helped more than a million Revit users solve their problems.

Since 2021, I work full-time as a BIM consultant for a wide variety of clients. Part of my job is to create heroic families for them.

I am passionate about creating gorgeous, helpful, lean families. My goal is to transmit my passion and skills to you.
