Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding beam pockets, part of Revit: Structural Families.
- Beam pockets are like slab depressions.…Only, they're hosted to the face of a wall,…rather than to a horizontal face.…In this video, we'll create a void family,…and insert it into a foundation wall.…So, for this example,…I have some nicely laid out little beam pockets here.…This is what we're going to create in a moment.…So to get started, let's go to Families,…let's go to New.…I'm going to scroll down until we find…Generic Model face based.…And we're going to click Open.…Now I'm going to create a reference plane…by right-clicking on this horizontal reference plane,…and I'm going to Create Similar.…
On my Draw panel,…I'm going to click my Pick Lines button,…And I'm going to offset it 1'.…But I'm going to offset it down one foot.…This will represent the top of my void.…I'm going to dimension it.…I'm going to select my dimension,…I'm going to add a parameter,…I'm going to call it: Length.…I'm going to make it an Instance parameter.…Now I'm going to click OK.…Now, I'm going to right-click on this reference plane,…I'm going to Create Similar,…
Following an overview of the basics, Eric provides specific instructions on modeling different types of families: foundation, framing, annotation, and truss families. He'll show how to perform 3D extrusions and build in flexibility with parameters, as well as create formulas, array parameters, and lookup tables.
