Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding types, part of Revit: Families.
In this lesson, we're going to add two different types for our family. …Of course, having the flexible parametric part is what we're trying to accomplish …with all of our families. There are, however, some common …dimensions in every family that we can actually set up for the person we are …giving the family to. Let's take for example a door. …We set up the family to be any width or any height possible, as you can see with …what we've been doing here. However, the user would probably want a …36 inch wide by 84 inch high pre-defined set. …So they don't have to worry about typing that dimension in all the time.…
So if the family name was Door, we'd give the person a Door type which is 36 inches …by 84 inches. The objective of this exercise is to …create two different types for our family, a 6 by 6 and a 12 by 12. …Open the file you saved called Cove and follow along. …On the Properties panel, click the Family Types button. …This is one type we're going to use. We're going to call it a 1 by 1 by 2. …
