- So our pool table family is basically complete.…It could use a few finishing touches.…So in this movie, I would like to add a few…more little details to the pool table…and then the real test is to load it into a project…and make sure that it's behaving in…the project environment the way that we expect.…So if you've been following along,…you can continue in your own file.…Otherwise, this is Pool Table V2.…Probably the most noticeable thing that you'll see here…if we look in the 3D view is that most pool tables…have that really recognizable green felt…on the surface there.…So one of the things we can do in the family editor…environment is we can select our solid forms,…and we can actually apply materials to them.…
So I'm gonna select the extrusion…that we've used for the pool table's surface there,…and I'm gonna look over here on the Properties palette.…And if I scroll down a little bit,…under Materials and Finishes, you'll see that…currently, the material is set to By Category.…Now I like to affectionately refer to By Category…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
