About this app


Working with in-place families in Autodesk® Revit® can be quite challenging. While there may be valid reasons for creating them, it's easy to get carried away and create far too many. That's where the In-Place Family Warning plugin comes in. This add-in offers a virtual "hand slap" to remind users to use this tool purposefully, all while adding a fun reference to a popular 90s movie.

The Parallax In-Place Family Warning plugin is an application-level add-in that requires no user interaction to operate.

Simplicity at Its Best

One of the highlights of this plugin is its simplicity. With just a single installation, you can save yourself from the hassle of dealing with excessive and unnecessary in-place families. The plugin effectively reduces clutter and promotes best practices within your Revit projects.

Additionally, the In-Place Family Warning plugin allows users to choose whether or not to continue creating an in-place family after receiving the reminder. If you opt to proceed, the popup will no longer appear for the rest of your Revit session. This feature strikes the perfect balance between guidance and flexibility.

A Friendly Approach

While some plugins may lock users out entirely, the developers of In-Place Family Warning have taken a more user-friendly approach. Instead of enforcing strict restrictions, they trust users to make informed decisions. By eliminating the need for a password, the plugin ensures that you can still access and edit in-place families when necessary. It's a refreshing change that empowers users without compromising their productivity.


If you find yourself dealing with an overwhelming number of in-place families in your Revit projects, the In-Place Family Warning plugin is a lifesaver. Its unobtrusive nature, simplicity, and user-friendly approach make it a must-have tool for anyone working with Revit. By gently reminding users to use this feature purposefully, the plugin promotes better project organization and encourages best practices.

Don't let excessive in-place families slow you down. Give the In-Place Family Warning plugin a try and experience the difference it can make in your Revit workflow.
