Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating blends, part of Revit: Structural Families.
- Blends work well when you need to fuse…two different types of geometry together.…If you have a shape with a rectangle on one side…and a circle on the other,…this type of extrusion is wonderful.…So, this video will have us creating a blended extrusion.…Under "Families", let's go "New".…Let's scroll down until we find "Generic Model".…Now, what I'd like to do is go to the "Front" elevation.…Let's "zoom all".…Let's create a Reference Plane.…
On our "Draw" panel, use your "Pick Lines" button.…Let's give it an offset of four feet.…Hit "esc" a couple times.…On the "Measure" panel, click the drop-down,…and let's select "Aligned Dimension".…Starting from our strong reference;…ending at our weaker reference.…Let's put a dimension in.…Let's select a dimension,…give it a label of "Height",…and let's click "OK".…
Let's select the Upper Reference Plane.…Let's call it "Top"…Let's click "Apply".…Excellent.…Now, let's go to our Ref Level Floor Plan.…I don't want to add anymore Reference Plane.…I want to add these new Reference Planes…
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.
