Description

In this Revit tutorial we'll go over several ways to work with trusses. We'll start off with the basics and explore how to sketch and manipulate truss families that are available in Revit's family library. We'll learn how to adjust such parameters as truss height, structural members, panel width and even the rotation angle for each member. Next we'll create a simple, static truss family type in the structural truss family template. We'll learn how to draw top and bottom chords as well as web members. We'll also cover how to set up your truss so that it loads into the project environment properly. Once we've become comfortable with the simple truss family, we'll take it one step further and learn how to work with constraints and formulas to create a parametric truss that we can manipulate and flex. By the end of this Revit training you'll know how to work with truss families, as well as be able to use parametric modeling techniques to create customizable trusses for use in future projects. Software required: Revit 2015.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] how they're on Pier with digital tutors and auto desk authorized publisher. In this Senate tutorials, you'll learn several ways to model trusses within revenue. We'll start off with the basics and explore how to sketch and manipulate trust families that are already available to you within rivets. Family Library will learn how to adjust. Such parameters is trust height, structural members, the panel with and even the rotation angle for each member. Next, we'll create a simple, static trust family in the structural trust family template. We'll learn how to draw the top and bottom cords as well as the Web members in between. We'll also cover how to set up your trust so that it loads into the project environment properly. Once we've become comfortable with the simple trust, family will take it one step further and learn how to work with constraints and formulas to create a parametric trust that we can manipulate and even flex. By the end of this course, you'll know how to work with the trust families within rev it, but you'll also be able to use Parametric modeling techniques to create customizable trusses for use in future projects. So with that, I'm ready to get started and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
