Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating custom cone top columns, part of Revit: Structural Families.
- [Voiceover] I like those old fashioned…concrete columns with the cone at the top.…They're pretty cool.…I hate it when people avoid modeling them, though.…This video will have us creating…a column family using a revolve at the top,…then we're going to specify a base.…So, this is the type of column I want to do.…We have a cone shaped top, what's usually…a round or a square base; we'll model…a round base, and usually some kind of…pre-cast, concrete bearing plate at the top of it.…So, to get started, let's jump into Revit.…Under "Families", let's go "New", let's…scroll down to "Structural Column".…
Let's click "Open".…We have a few reference planes made;…these are pretty common as we've learned so far,…but we might as well take advantage…of the ones that are in here.…The first thing I usually do, though,…is I investigate what parameters we have,…so I'm going to click on "Family Types."…We really don't have too many,…"Structural Material", we'll definitely use that,…so let's hit cancel, and let's add some dimensions.…
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.
