Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating sweeps, part of MEP Families in Revit.
- Sweeps are actually pretty cool,…and they work cool as well.…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 actually flex along with the object.…It's pretty cool.…What I'd like to do in this video,…is build off our box.…We're going to put kind of a…gooseneck sweep on the top of it,…then we're going to put a flange around it.…Under Families, let's click Open.…Let's browse to where we kept our Box Family,…and click Open.…
Okay, let's add a couple more reference planes,…and set up some parameters.…In the Elevations, let's go to our Left Elevation.…Now I'm going to Offset this reference plane up five feet,…and this reference plane to the right five feet.…So I'm going to right click on this reference plane,…and Create Similar.…On my Draw Panel, I'm going to click Pick Lines.…I'm going to Offset five feet.…
With my command still running,…I'm going to Offset to the right five feet.…I'm going to hit Escape a few times.…
Author Eric Wing shows how to model MEP families on a topic-by-topic basic, so you can learn the ins and outs of family creation while modeling exactly what you need for your drawings today. The course starts with a review of the basics: parameters, connectors, dimensions, and various family modeling techniques. Then Eric investigates specific parts and systems that can be created with Revit families: electrical panels and junction boxes, recessed and track lighting, HVAC systems with ducting and air terminals, and pipe systems. Along the way, he introduces the reference planes, parameters, shapes, and hosting options necessary to build families on your own.
