Programatically opening up revit families


Can someone suggest a way using the API where I can automate the opening of a revit family from within a project (this could either be from within the project directly or from an external link- both would work).


Have a look through the Orchid and Clockwork packages. I believe there is methods for opening, editing and loading in these packages.

This looks to be the API method to use: EditFamily Method

Some example here if you want to use python.
