Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding an insert and configuring material, part of Revit Families Workshop.
In this lesson, we're going to add a door Insert panel and learn how to specify …material parameters. When designing a Door panel, such as one …with styles and rails, you need to be flexible in terms of materials. …If we added a material here in the family, ask this question, how could we …change the material in the project? Sure, we can make a few material …parameters, and we're going to do that. But how do those parameters get linked to …the actual extrusions that make up the parts of the doors? …And also, how does the model even know which parts these pieces even are? …The objective of this lesson is to map materials so the end user can edit them …without having to open the family. And we're going to allocate each part of …the door to be a sub category. Open the door family and follow along.…
The first thing I'd like to do is in floor plans, let's go down to ref level. …What we're going to do is we're going to put an Internal panel in here, so we need …to make an additional reference point to locate it. …
