    Mirror - variable dimentions?

    Ive made the simplest family - just a mirror - how do I get it to change the dimentions in the project? Do I have to create ten thousand different family types for each that differs with 0,5cm?

    You can, if you want, create types in the mirror family (if it's fixed dimensions), just make two type parameters (Width and Height). Otherwise make the width and height parameteres instance based, and you can decide on the dimension of each mirror in the project when loaded. It all depend on your needs.

      cath, it sounds like you really should be getting some basic Revit training, or else maybe even try to train yourself by reading the help documents.
      That's a really basic family question, one which I'm sure you could have found the answer to yourself, without coming back here with your negative attitude.

        Had you thought to open up an existing family from the software and see how it was made in the family editor?

        You'll want some reference planes to play host to parameters that you create to dictate length/width/depth. Constrain your geometry to these planes and you can fiddle away at the size.

          Unfortunately, Autodesk didnt care to make a tutorial, and their Help documentation is a joke - they use 100words where they should use one picture. Sorry for the question but it just so happens I didnt get a training, nor am I gonna get one.

          I dont even know the names of the features so its kinda hard to look it up.

                Less than 5 minutes of work - with a laptop trackpad - do what you will.

                  Tell me again how that's Autodesk's fault?
