Reference Planes – the basics of all elements that make up families.
Dimensions – control how those Reference Planes move.
Labeling – connects the Dimension to the Parameter.
Session02 More Family Tools and Concepts
Reference Planes – the basics of all elements that make up families
Based on the Cartesian coordinate system
Naming Reference Planes is important
All geometry is attached to reference planes
Center (Left/Right) + Center (Front/Back) = Insertion Point
Dimensions – control how those Reference Planes move
Dimension Widths, Lengths, Heights
Equalized Dimensions - Center (Left/Right) + Center (Front/Back)
Don’t Over Dimension (over constrain the model)
Labeling – connects the Dimension to the Parameter
Select the Dimension
Apply the Label
IF no operate Parameter, create one on the fly
Applying Parameters – what connects it all
Found in the Family Types Dialog Box
Some Parameters are not Modifiable (Template based)
Some Parameters are Modifiable (all the ones you create)
Naming Parameters is important
This is all that makes up families. There is nothing but this.
These concepts have to be understood before we even begin the process of creating families.
The Cha-Cha-Cha – the basic step for all things family
Draw Reference planes
Dimension Reference Planes
Label the dimension with the appropriate parameter
Flexing – testing that the Parameters work
Make sure that it does what it is suppose to
From the Family Types Dialog – Larger and Smaller Values
If you ADDED then you need to Flex = constantly Flexing the model
Test Project – testing that the Family works
Never load and untested family into a live project
Checking that the family works as a whole
Checking for Type Names and Family Names
Masses – what is a mass, how we use them and why we use them
Solid + Void Forms = any shape possible
Five kinds of Forms
Geometry Tools: Join/Cut
Sketch Mode + Mass Properties
Masses are built off a base sketch (footprint)
Rule = Closed Loop – Multiple loops are ok.
Mass properties control the Extrusion Depth, Material and Visibility
Align and Lock
Sketch Lines and Extrusions are Aligned and Locked to Reference Planes
Dimensions can be used as well (constrained )
Always Flex everything
Although this Table family is simple; the concepts presented and process demonstrated during its creation are the core of all things Family. We must learn to walk before we can run, we must crawl before we can walk. This was the first of 16 hours of training; we have a long way to go to fully understanding the power of families.
Q and A what did we learn
Basic tools and Best practices to use in the Family Editor
How to build a family from scratch and test that it works correctly
A Family is a collect of Family Types, Types hold Parameters, Parameters control Reference Planes
