- Using the trust bars we had earlier,…we're going to make a line-based family,…arraying these trust bars up it.…Let's scroll down to Generic Model line based.…Let's click Open.…Let's create a Sweep.…We're going to Sketch Path.…And I'll type s+i for snap intersection,…s+i for snap intersection.…And I'm going to hit Escape.…Let's click Finish Edit Mode.…Let's go to our left elevation.…Let's click on Edit Profile.…
Now let's add some reference planes.…Go to the Create tab, click Reference Plane.…On the Draw panel click Pick Lines.…Let's offset one foot, six inches.…To the left, and to the right.…Let's click the Measure.…Let's put some equal dimensions in here.…Now we'll overall measure it.…Add a label to that three foot dimension.…
Call it "width".…It's going to be an Instance parameter.…Click OK.…Let's create another reference plane…by right-clicking on this, Create Similar.…Use your Pick Lines button.…Let's offset this three feet.…I'll go up three feet.…The Measure panel, we'll click Align Dimension.…Click to here to 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.
