Insertion Point: Revit Families

Question: How do you define/change the insertion point of a Revit Family?

Answer: From the properties of the reference planes in the Revit Family!

In a Revit Family when you click on a reference plane and go to its properties you will see a property called ‘Defines Origin’ – the point at which two origin defining reference planes intersect becomes the insertion point of the Revit Family.
