Creating Roman- and Moorish-style arches

We've talked about creating seed families quite a bit in the course so far. And in the last movie we created a segmental arch. Well once you have a segmental arch, it could actually become the seed for other shapes of arches. So the segmental could easily become a Roman arch or a Moorish arch just by varying the parameters inside that file. So, in this movie, let's take a look at how we can do that. So, I've got a file here called Segmental and it's just the endpoint from where we left off in the end of the last movie.

What we can do is take this and save it as and give it a name as either Roman or Moorish and then just simply vary the settings. So you can do a save as, as a family. Put it on my desktop. I'll call it Roman. And now all I have to do is go to family types and I'll flex it first. So I'm going to take the height, and I'll make it 1, because the width is 2. Let's apply that. In order to get a Roman arch you just need the height to be half the width. Now if...
