- [Voiceover] Okay, let's make a door panel.…To do so, let's jump into our door panel file,…and let's follow along.…First thing I wanna do, though,…is set our rough width to be different.…What I'd like to do is go to my exterior elevation,…select this width,…and I'm gonna click the drop-down here,…and I'm gonna put that on Rough Width.…Now I'm gonna go to my family types,…and my rough width is gonna be a formula.…So Rough Width is gonna be width plus jam total size,…so I'm gonna type in width, I'm gonna space,…plus sign, now remember we gotta open the brackets,…jam hyphen total size.…
We're gonna close that bracket.…We're gonna hit Enter, perfect.…Now let's make a bunch more door parameters.…I'm gonna click on my New Parameter button.…The name will be door hyphen reveal,…it'll be a type parameter, and we'll hit okay.…Let's make that one eighth of an inch.…Let's click New Parameter.…We're gonna make this door style size, hyphen,…and that's good, I'm gonna hit OK.…I'm gonna grab Door-Thickness,…and I'm gonna click the little up button here,…
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.
