Is there a wrong way to use Autodesk® Seek?

In the middle of the design process, families are needed instantly at the click of a button.  Seek seems like the answer, because it is right there, on the ribbon (Insert tab).  And Seek claims to have 65,000 Revit® families from hundreds of manufacturers.

Let’s run an experiment.  I am working on a project that requires a door that is not in my firm’s standard family library.  I type “door” into Seek’s search field and scan the results. 

Where to find Free Revit® Families

If you can’t find free Revit content you aren’t looking for it.  OK – that was overstated.  If you can’t find Revit families you aren’t looking hard enough.  If you try an easy web search, you may find nothing.  For example, if you do a simple search for “free revit content” the magic of Google returns three blogs, a collaboration service and a namespace sitter – and zero websites with Revit families.
