    Precast culvert family

    Hi,
    I'm trying to create culvert family which consists of 2 nested families. Let me show you my approach and please leave a comment whether it's right or not.
    1. Firstly, I created a family (generic model) which represents outer contour.

    2. Secondly, I created inner contour same way.

    3. I created new Generic Model Adaptive and load into it 2 previously created families, using 1. as a solid and 2. as a void.

    Now I would like to set a few types of culverts (different various dimensions), but I don't know how to do it within this generic model adaptive family. I specified a few types of 1. and 2. family but can I choose from these types within 3. family?

    Based on your post there isn't a reason to make that an adaptive component or use nested families. When you create your extrusion you can can include a second sketch loop to create the hole in the middle. Could also be done with a profile and a sweep / swept blend as a void if needed.
