Chapter 6

Modifying Families

Now that you have added a number of families to your project and the design has progressed, you’ll often find it necessary to modify the families. Sometimes swapping out a generic family component for one that is more specific is the best solution. In other cases, it’s simply a matter of opening the component family that you started with and tweaking the geometry to better fit your design. Either solution is viable — which you choose depends on the result that is better for your design process.

In this chapter, you learn the following skills:

  • Editing view display and detail level
  • Changing the family category
  • Modifying family geometry
  • Family tips and best practices
