I'm gonna pick a point off here,…click my eq button,…then I'm gonna put in my overall dimension.…I'm gonna select my four foot dimension.…From my label, I'm gonna go to add parameter,…and for the name, I'm gonna call it width.…Now I'm gonna click okay, and hit escape.…Now I'm gonna click on align dimension,…I'm gonna dimension from here, to here,…and I'm gonna pick a point off of it like that,…
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.
