So I'm trying to make a project-file for a table that I've made as a family. In the project file I want to dimension the table, as a whole and as the differents parts of the table.
I've made visibility parameters in the family, but my problem is that that will hide that part of the table, i.e. the legs, in all views. I want to have one section with only the table top, one section with only the legs etc.
Any ideas of how I would go about this without copying the table in the project file and hiding different parts in each of them?
Solved! Go to Solution.
To hide in that way, you don't need visibility parameters, but subcategories. The top and the legs need to be in different subcategories that you create with VG inside the family. Then, in the project, with VG, you turn off the correspondent subcategory in each view.
However, try to avoid this method when you plan to distribute this family to other users, because you will be creating some custom subcategories that other people don't have and don't know about.
