Hi just a quick question about parametric family creation.
I am creating a library of mechanical familys and have come across a problem when producing some of the parametric types. For example I have just created a VAV Box which comes available in 3 sizes. My problem is that the small & medium models are identical other than size and work fine when changing the parametric properties but the larger model has a few parts not incuded that are shown in the other models. I was wondering if there is a way to isolate or remove cretain parts of a model inside different parametric types or would I simply have to create a separte family for the larger model.
You should create the pieces/parts as seperate individual families that are not consistant across ALL Types you are setting up in the Family. Then Insert them one at a time as "Nested" Families, and apply a YES/NO Parameter to the visibility param for each piece. Then when you set up each TYPE, simply apply a YES or a NO for the appropriate parts, thus turning on or off.
