- [Voiceover] Here's the deal,…there are literally hundreds of combinations…of wall cabinets we can deal with.…What I want to do is create a lookup table,…that way when we load our cabinet into our project…we get a dialogue allowing us to just choose one or two…different types, instead of the hundreds…of different types we'll have.…This is more common for structural,…but you see it a lot now in architectural as well.…So to do this I'm going to my wall cabinet lookup,…or you can go into the wall cabinet file…you've been following along with.…I'm going to jump right into my family types.…I'm going to straighten out some of my dimensions first.…
For my width I'm going to go two feet,…my height I go two feet, and my depth,…I'm going to go one foot.…Now I want to create a new type,…so I'm going to come up here…and I'm going to click on new type.…Now, all caps it's going to be,…W2D_…24x24x12.…I'm gonna go ahead and select this, I'm gonna right click…and I'm gonna copy it to the clip board.…I'm gonna click okay.…Now, I'm gonna click on new again,…
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.
