Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a panel, part of Revit: MEP Families.
- Okay, let's make a panel.…I know Autodesk and a lot of manufactures,…have a few of these,…but again, this is the perfect family…to learn how to make this kind of stuff.…The objective here is we are going to make it…actually a Panel Box,…then we are going to bring it into a Panel family.…That way we'll be able to recess the panel…with an If-Then statement.…Under Families, let's click New.…Let's scroll down to Generic Model.…Let's open that up.…On Create Tab, let's click Family Category and Parameters.…
Let's make it Electrical Equipment, and click Okay.…I'm going to make some Reference Planes,…so I'm going to right click on one…and create similar.…Pick lines, offset, one foot…to the left, to the right.…I'm going to offset two feet up,…and then down.…I'm going to put my equally constrained dimension on them…right here, here, here.…EQ, here, here, here equally constrainted.…Let's put our overall width, put our overall height.…
Just like that two foot dimension,…add a parameter, call it Width.…Add a parameter here, call it height.…
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.
