Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Generic annotations, part of MEP Families in Revit.
- Okay, let's get to the boring stuff.…I want to make some annotations.…The thing is your drawings still have…to look like drawings.…Just because we're modeling everything,…it doesn't mean we can't just bring in…2D symbols to specify things.…Let's do it.…Under Families, let's go New.…I want to go to Annotations,…and my favorite, Generic Annotation.…So I'm going to click Open.…And I'm going to get rid of my note, hit Delete.…I'm going to Create, Line.…On m Draw panel, I'm going to click on my Pick Lines button.…
And zoom in.…Now I'm going to offset…one sixteenth of an inch,…to the left, to the right,…up, and down.…So zoom out a little bit.…Type T+R for trim.…I'm going to trim these out.…Now I'm going to draw another line…from here to here,…and from here to here.…
I'm going to go to Create,…and I'm going to go Filled Region.…My Subcategory will be Invisible lines.…And I'm going to click on Pick Lines here,…here, here, here, here.…Type T+R for trim.…Trim these out.…Click on Finish Edit Mode.…I'm going to select this.…I'm going to type M+M.…
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.
