- [Voiceover] In this video, I'd like to do another profile.…This one's gonna be a baseboard, so it'll be…a little bit different than the chair rail we did.…But what we wanna do is a lot of these trims,…we wanna kinda match them together,…so that's what we're gonna do here.…So under Families, let's go New.…Let's scroll down to Profile Hosted.…Let's click Open.…Now in this case, this is going to be our floor…and this is gonna be our wall.…So let's start in with some reference planes.…I'm gonna right-click on this reference plane…and Create Similar.…
On my Draw panel, I use my Pick Lines button,…and I'm gonna give it an offset of one inch.…While I'm my offset command,…let's offset another four inches up, hit Escape.…Let's change our scale to…inch and a half equals a foot.…Let's go up to Manage, let's go to Project Units,…and for our length, let's press zero feet.…Hit OK and OK, now, let's add some dimensions.…So on the Quick Access toolbar,…click on the Dimension button.…
Go from your strong reference to your weak reference.…
Author Eric Wing shows how to model families that help you build exactly what you need for your drawings. Eric investigates profiles such as chair rails, baseboards, doors, cabinets, and shelving, as well as adaptive components. Along the way, he introduces the reference planes, parameters, and formulas necessary to build architectural families on your own.
