This SEU BIM Forum session demonstrated various ways to create different types of parametric trusses using the Revit family templates and in-place families to make them work for your building design.
A truss was loaded into a project, and then tools were shown for attaching, editing profiles, cutback and resetting the truss, and exploding the truss to individual components. This session delved deep into the family editor for truss creation so it was important to have some prior knowledge about families such as reference planes, reference lines, parameters, formulas, form creation, and the creation of parameters.
Session Length: 1.0 hour
