In Project files we establish the overall form and structure of the building with a series of Levels and Column Grids; not every building has column grids, but many of them do. Such Datum Elements are not available in the Family Editor. All Model Families do include one or two Reference Levels; it really depends on the actual template you start, whether you'll get one or two. In the Family Editor instead we use Reference Planes. Reference Planes are what are going to determine the overall structure and form of our Family.

We started with the two, here in the center, and what we're going to do here in this movie is we're going to add additional ones to represent the overall shape and size of our table that we're drawing. So to do that, I'm going to start here in Floor Plan and I want to draw a series of four Reference Planes to represent the four sides of the table. So I'm going to go to my Home tab and there are actually Reference Lines and Reference Planes, I want...
