- Sweeps are cool and they work awesome.…Essentially we can add a sweep to either a 3D edge…or sketch our own.…If the sweep is appended to an object that is…parameter driven, the sweep will flex along with the object.…The objective of this video is to create a sweepable object…then sweep away.…We will create a sweep by sketch,…a sweep using a profile,…and a blended sweep.…Let's start a New Family,…and we'll go to the Generic Model.…Let's go to a Front Elevation in our project browser.…Type z + a to zoom all.…
I'm going to right click on this reference plane,…and I'm going to Create Similar.…On my Draw panel, I'm going to uses my Pick Lines button.…I'm going to Offset up 8'.…While I'm at it, I'm going to Offset to the right 8'.…Now I'm going to hit escape.…I'm going to select this reference plane and drag it over.…I'm going to drag this reference plane up a little bit.…The idea is I'm going to have a post that comes up…to this point, then it come at an angle up to here.…
Let's add some parameters.…On my Measure panel, I'm going to click Aligned Dimension.…
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.
