- Sometimes we need the top of our walls…to have a little forty-five degree bevel.…Let's make a family that does that.…In this video, we'll be creating a profile family.…Then we'll add it to a foundation wall.…From there, we'll sweep it vertically,…and horizontally.…We're also going to add an if statement…to make it change sizes.…So let's get started.…Under Families, let's click New.…I want to scroll down to Profile-Reveal,…and I want to click Open.…What I want to do now is make some reference planes.…
So I'm going to right-click on this reference plane here,…and I'm going to Create Similar.…On my Draw panel,…I'm going to click on the Pick Lines button,…I'm going to give it an offset of 3/4".…I'm going to offset it left,…then right,…then up,…and then down.…And I'm going to hit escape a couple of times.…Now on my Measure panel,…I'm going to click Aligned Dimension.…I'm going to go here,…to here,…to here,…and I'm going to click off of it here.…Now I want to click EQ.…Now I'm going to select here to here,…and I'm going to pick a point here.…
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.
