Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an air terminal, part of Revit: MEP Families.
- Alright, I'd like to make a sidewall diffuser.…So, let's go to Families, New,…I'm going to scroll down to Generic Model face based,…and I'm going to click Open.…Let's jump right into reference planes,…I'm going to right-click here and Create Similar,…on my draw panel I'm going to use my Pick Lines button,…I'm going to give it an offset of 2' 0".…I'm going to go to my left,…and to my right,…and now I'll give it an offset of 0' 8",…up and down.…
Hit ESC,…I'm going to click on my Align Dimension,…I am going to equally constrain these,…and I shall equally constrain these.…Now I'm going to give it an overall dimension,…and then select my 4' 0" dimension,…I'm going to add a parameter,…and I'm going to call it Length.…I'm going to give it a Type parameter,…I'm going to click OK,…I'm going to give this an overall dimension,…I'm going to select it,…Add Parameter, I'm going to call it Height,…and I'm going to click OK.…
Perfect, now I'm going to go to a front elevation,…I'm going to right-click here…and I'm going to Create Similar,…
Author Eric Wing shows how to model MEP families on a topic-by-topic basic, so you can learn the ins and outs of family creation while modeling exactly what you need for your drawings today. The course starts with a review of the basics: parameters, connectors, dimensions, and various family modeling techniques. Then Eric investigates specific parts and systems that can be created with Revit families: electrical panels and junction boxes, recessed and track lighting, HVAC systems with ducting and air terminals, and pipe systems. Along the way, he introduces the reference planes, parameters, shapes, and hosting options necessary to build families on your own.
