Line / face based family


Line based Families are awesome.
Face based Families are awesome.
But have you ever combined the two in a single Family?

When-ever you need a swept object hosted on another object; maybe it’s a window sill, or how about a custom concrete extrusion protruding from a slab? Then this combination might be the right solution for the job.

To create a Line Based | Face Based Family:

  1. Start a Generic Model line based Family.
  2. Check on the Work Plane-Based Family parameter.
  3. Model your geometry.
