    How to add a level to a family?

    I thought you could copy and paste a level within the family but that does not work. There is also no tool for adding one.

    This is for a family and not a family template. If you could give me an answer for both types that would be great. Thank you.

    What are you doing that would require you to want a second level in a family that isn't a column or other such thing?

      As you have found this is not possible. You could rebuild your family starting with a two level template or nest your existing family into a new two level family.

        As Elton said, not possible. Why not just add a reference plane, name it Level 2 and create a parameter for level to level dimension and get on with life?

          For things like elevators, that gets to be a chore to do the math for how tall it is.

          But, as has already been said: either rebuild in a 2 level family template, or nest it in to a 2 level family template.
