Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an exit sign annotation, part of Revit: MEP Families.
- Here's another two video process,…very similar to the night light deal.…It's the same idea in the fact that we're…going to create a symbol for our plan,…then we're going to load it into another 3D model.…What we're going to do here though is we're going to…have a lot of visibility parameters.…So, let's get started by modeling the exit sign…annotation first, then in the second video…we'll model the 3D exit sign.…So under Families, let's go New.…Let's go to Annotations, let's go to Generic Annotation,…let's click Open, and let's, rotate with component…and keep text readable to begin with.…
Now, what I'd like to do is go to Create,…Line, then it's going to be a circle.…Now I want to pick a point right here,…and we'll make the radius be one eighth of an inch.…But what we need to do is, this is going to go…against a wall, so picture this as your wall.…So, I'm going to select my circle,…I'm going to click the Move button, now I'm going to…pick this quadrant and I'm going to move it up to here,…now I'm going to hit Escape.…
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.
