- Sometimes we need symbols that are…just that, symbols,…nothing 3D about them.…This video's objective is to create a simple annotation…and drive in to a model.…And we're going to add what's called a Not parameter.…The Not parameter, we're going to associate with…two visibility parameters that we're going to create.…So under Families, let's go New.…Let's go to our Annotations folder,…let's find Generic Annotation.…I'm going to select my little text box and hit delete,…we don't want to see that.…
Now let's draw some lines.…On the create tab, I'm going to pick my Line button.…On my Draw panel, I'm going to use my Pick Lines…and I'm going to give it an Offset of 1/16" of an inch.…We don't need reference plains because remember,…Annotations will scale up or down…with the scale of the view.…I'm going to zoom in pretty close,…I'm going to go to the left, to the right,…up, then down,…and hit escape a couple times,…zoom in a little closer.…I'm going to type t r for trim,…and I'm going to trim these lines out just like that.…
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.
