Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video In-place families, part of Revit: Architectural Families.
- [Voiceover] Up to this point,…We've made some pretty cool profiles.…But the problem is…we've swept them down the length of entire walls.…In reality,…Generally you're going to have room by room…where some of these profiles are in…and some of them are not.…What means that, we need the ability…to sweep them down walls.…But not the entire wall.…Just in a room.…That's where the in place families comes in handy.…We've already done the hard work by creating the profiles.…Now we just need to lay them in room by room.…Let's get started by just going to a new project.…Under projects let's go to architectural template right here.…
All right. Now I just want to draw some simple walls.…On the architecture tab, let's click the wall button.…I'm just going to start drawing some walls.…Let me put a couple little corners in there.…A couple little bump outs.…Something to kind of make it realistic.…Come back and maybe just tie it off there.…What I'm going to do though is…I'm going to pull some of these walls down…just to simulate the fact that…
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.
