- I want to make kind of truss…that looks like the rigging you hang…lights off of at a concert.…This'll be a two video process…but the outcome is pretty awesome.…By actually creating a blended extrusion…we'll use those lines as a guide for our webmembers.…So, to get started lets get into Revit,…let's go Families, let's go New.…I'm going to scroll down to Generic Model…and I'm going to click Open.…I'm going to right click on this reference plan…and then I'm going to Create Similar, Pick Lines.…
My offset I'm going to go one foot six…to the left and to the right, up then down,…then I'm going to hit Escape.…I'm going to click Aligned Dimension.…I'm going to dimension these two evenly.…Click EQ.…I'm going to come across and I'm going…to add a three foot dimension.…I'm going to select it.…I'm going to add a label.…Going to be a Type parameter, group uinder Dimensions.…I'm going to click OK.…
I'm going to dimension these two down here.…Equally constrain them.…Select at three feet, hit my Label drop-down,…<Add Parameter>.…
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.
