Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Baseplate families, part of Structural Families in Revit.
- I really hate seeing columns just sitting directly…on top of concrete in Revit, but that's what we do.…By creating a simple family, we're going to model…a flexible baseplate to fit underneath a column,…complete with grout and everything.…So, let's get started.…Under Families, let's go to New.…I want to go back to my generic model, face based,…I love this face based stuff.…Let's click Open.…Let's add some reference planes.…I'm going to right click on this reference plane,…I'm going to Create Similar.…
On my Draw panel, I'm to click on my Pick Lines button.…I'm going to offset that six inches.…I'm going to go to the left, to the right,…I'm going to go up and down.…I'm going to click on my Aligned Dimension.…I'm going to dimension across the top.…Click EQ.…I'm going to do an overall dimension.…Hit Escape.…I'm going to select my one foot dimension.…
Hit my Label dropdown, I'm going to call it "Width".…Type parameter, I'm going to click OK.…Now I'm going to dimension my horizontal ones.…I'm going to click EQ.…I'll put a dimension overall on this one.…
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.
