Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding lines and flexing the geometry, part of Revit Families Workshop.
In this lesson, we're going to actually draft the profile and test the model to …make sure it works. It's time to add the lines to the family, …it's funny because this seems like the most important part. …Of course, it's important. However, having the structure underlining …the actual drafting makes for an unbreakable family. …It doesn't go without saying that the lines do have to be somewhat drawn in a …specific manner, and we're going to cover that. …The objective of this exercise is to create the line work for our profile and …to flex the family to make sure it doesn't break when we use it in our project.…
Open the file you saved called Cove and follow along. …The first thing we're going to do is start drawing some lines. …Go to the Create tab and click the Line button. …And what we're going to do is we're going to start on this center section to here, …to here, to here, to here. Then we're going to put an arc in here, …all in one continuous motion. Importantly enough, when we snap to the …
