- Voids are used when we need to subtract…geometry from a solid object.…This video has us creating an extrusion.…Then we're going to remove a portion of that extrusion…using a void.…Under Families let's go New.…Let's scroll down to Generic Model, and let's click Open.…Let's create some reference planes for an extrusion.…I want to go one foot.…I'm going to dimension them.…And let's just add one parameter for both of these.…I hold down the Control key and select both…of my dimensions, now I can add a label.…
I'll just call it Size.…And I'm going to click OK.…I'm going to go to the Front Elevation.…Zoom all.…I'm going to Create Similar.…I'm going to offset a reference plane six feet.…I actually sent mine in the wrong direction.…If you do that, simply select it and hit Delete.…I'm going to dimension this.…I'm going to select my dimension,…click my Label dropdown and add a parameter…and call it Height, and I'm going to click OK.…
Now I'm going to create three reference planes.…I'm going to right click, Create Similar,…
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.
