Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating parameters, part of Revit: Structural Families.
- Parameters are obviously the driving force…behind a Parametric Family.…When we're modeling a Family, we want to give the individual…using that Family some choices.…These choices can be Dimensions, materials,…yes/no buttons, and an entire array of other options.…Also, Parameters can tell other Parameters what to do…based on mathematical formulas.…Basically, telling the Family that if this condition occurs,…then I want this to happen.…It's pretty sweet.…What I'd like to do is look at some Parameters…so we're going to add some Reference Planes,…some Dimensions, add some Parameters,…and flex the model.…
So let's jump into Revit and under Families,…let's click on New.…Let's scroll down and find our Generic Model, and select it.…Now let's add some Reference Planes.…I'm going to right click on this Reference Plane,…and I'm going to Create Similar.…On my Draw panel, I'm going to use my Pick Lines button.…I'm going to Offset it a foot.…One to the left,…one to the right,…one above,…one below.…Now I'll hit Esc a couple of times.…
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.
