- [Voiceover] What I'd like to do now…is make a parameter that shows a center support…if this increases seven feet in width.…Also, I'd like to create a shelf up here…and put that on a visibility parameter.…So let's get started by creating a center support.…So in my Project Browser,…I'm gonna go to Front Elevation.…Now I'm going to go to the Create Tab,…and I'm gonna click on Sweep.…I'm gonna click on Sketch Path.…Now, I'm gonna go from here…all the way down to here.…
Now I'm gonna hit Escape a couple of times.…I'm gonna type A + L for align,…I'm gonna align my top.…Now I'm going to align my bottom.…Excellent.…Let's go down to our Ref. Level floor plan.…Let's click on our green Finish Edit Mode button,…and let's click on Edit Profile.…Now I am gonna zoom in here.…On my Drop Panel, I'm gonna Pick Lines,…and I'm gonna offset one half inch.…
I'm gonna go to the left, then to the right.…I'm gonna set my offset to zero.…I'm gonna go here and here.…Type T + R for trim,…trim this all out.…I'm gonna offset the inside one sixteenth of an inch.…
Author Eric Wing shows how to model families that help you build exactly what you need for your drawings. Eric investigates profiles such as chair rails, baseboards, doors, cabinets, and shelving, as well as adaptive components. Along the way, he introduces the reference planes, parameters, and formulas necessary to build architectural families on your own.
