Description

In this series of tutorials, we'll go over how to create a custom family in Revit 2014. We'll begin with a stepping concept for our custom casework design. From there, we'll open a casework template and begin adjusting and placing some reference planes. Once we have planes in place, we will begin modeling the basic form of our design by working with the extrusion tool. Finally, once our form is in place, we'll use additional forming tools like void, revolve and swept blend to transform our basic shape to a more realistic looking family. By the end of this course you'll gain a real appreciation for being able to create customized a parametric family of your own using Revit 2014. Software required: Revit 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi there, Pierre here with digital tutors and Autodesk Authorized, published. And in this series of tutorials, I'll teach you how to create a custom family using reading 2014. We'll begin with a stepping concept for a custom casework designs, and from there we'll open a case work template and begin adjusting and placing some reference planes. Once we have our planes in place will begin in modeling the basic four of our design by taking advantage of the extrusion to. Finally, once our form is in place, we use additional forming tools like void revolved and even the swept blend tool to transform from a basic shape to a more realistic looking family. By the end of this course, you'll gain a real appreciation for being able to create customized Parametric families over your own using Rabbit 2014.
