Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating sheet symbols, part of Revit: Structural Families.
When I think of symbols on a sheet,…the first that that comes to mind is a north arrow.…I like this one because we have tons of Yes/No parameters…as well as visibility parameters.…So let's get started.…Let's go to Families.…Let's go to New.…I want to go to Annotations.…Now, I want to go to Generic Annotation.…I'm going to click Open.…I'm going to get rid of my text note…by selecting it and hitting delete.…I'm going to go to Create.…I'm going to go to Line.…Now, I'm going to create a circle.…
I'm going to pick a center point.…My radius will be 1/8 of an inch.…Now, I'm going to scroll into here.…I'm going to go to Create.…I'm going to do a Filled Region.…Now, I'm going to offset 1/32 of an inch.…On my Draw panel,…I'm going to click Pick Lines.…I'm going to go to the left…and to the right.…Now my Offset I'm going to type in zero.…I'm going to click this line here…and I'm going to click my circle.…
Hit escape.…Let's type t + r to trim these out.…Now, I'm going to slice this.…I'm going to type s + l…and I'm going to pick a point 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.
