- This is the first 3D shape we will do…because it's the most common: a simple extrusion.…Of course, (laughing) I can't let you just extrude away…without reference planes and parameters, now can I?…Under Families, let's go New,…let's scroll down to Generic Model.…Let's hit Open.…Let's create some reference planes,…so let's right-click on this reference plane here,…let's Create Similar.…On my Draw panel, I'm going to use my Pick Lines button.…I'm going to offset these one foot.…
Left and right, up and down.…I'm going to hit escape.…On my Quick Access toolbar,…I'm going to click Aligned Dimension.…I'm going to equally dimension these two.…I'm going to hit my EQ button.…I'm going to add a main dimension right here, two feet.…Hit escape.…Go to Aligned Dimension again,…let's do the same for our horizontal ones.…Click EQ,…overall dimension,…two feet.…
Let's hit escape a couple times.…Now, I'm going to select this two foot dimension,…I'm going to give it a label,…I'm going to Add Parameter,…I'm going to call that "Length."…
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.
