- What I'd like to do now is make the annotation symbol…for our schematic one-line plans for our ball valve.…To do that, I'm going to go Families, New.…Then I'm going to go to Annotations,…and I'm going to go to Generic Annotation,…and I'm going to click Open.…First order of business is to get rid of this note,…so I'm going to select it and hit Delete.…I'm going to zoom way in close,…because this is going to be tiny.…I'm going to go to Create, Line.…On my Draw panel I'm going to click my Pick Lines button.…
I'm going to offset this 1/16 of an inch.…I'm going to go to the left, then to the right.…I'm going to go up and then down.…Now, I'm just going to simply go to Create, Line.…Go from here to here.…Hit Escape, then from here to here.…Type t + r for trim.…And I'm making a little bow tie.…I'm going to select this line and delete it,…don't need it.…
Select this line, delete it, don't need it.…Okay.…Now, I'm just going to put a little symbol…sticking straight down, I guess.…So I'm going to go to Create, Line.…I'm going to go from here.…
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.
