Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling pour stop families, part of Structural Families in Revit.
- [Voiceover] What I'd like to do in this video…is create a line based family.…We're going to array a concrete panel.…Then I'm going to specify some spacing.…We're going to specify how big…we want to have that panel within a certain length.…So to get started, let's go to the Families category,…and let's click on New.…Let's scroll down to Generic Model line based,…and let's click Open.…Let's make the length be a little longer than four feet.…In the Properties, let's click Family Types.…
Let's make our length be 40 feet.…Let's click Apply.…Let's click OK.…Now what's going to happen is,…when we load this into a project,…we're going to simply draw a line,…as if we're drawing a regular drafting line,…and it's going to wind up spacing our panels out evenly.…So let's bring in a panel.…Let's go through the Insert tab,…and let's click Load Family.…Browse to where you kept your panel,…and select it.…Let's click Open.…Now let's go to the Create tab,…and let's click the Component button.…
I'm not going to try to center this properly,…
Following an overview of the basics, Eric provides specific instructions on modeling different types of families: foundation, framing, annotation, and truss families.
