Hi there. sorry if this has been asked before but I couldn't find an answere when I searched.

I hace created an in place model for some fabricated steelwork. There are multiple instances of this componenet in my building so I really want to make it so that If i change the model once it updated all instances of the component. I understand that creating a family is the way to go about doing this.....but I cant find how I can take my inplace model and turn it into a family. I can't even find out how to create a blank family that I can then copy my in place model into.....Am I missing something?

Create a new Family, you have templates for that, now, in your project edit your IN-PLACE family, select ALL (ref. planes, dimensions....) and copy (CTRL-C), go to your NEW family and PASTE.

thanks for that- very useful. One more question...when I was modleing in place I was able to use symbolic  lines to define how the element showed on plan. In the family editor I still have symbolic lines that I can draw, but there are nowhere near as many available to use. I really want 'stick symbol projection'. Is there any way I can load in more symbolic line types......or could this be a problem caused by me selecting the family omniclass title to be 'trussed beams and joists?

thanks again for your help

Knowing that this thread is 5 years old...

Just copy and paste whatever types of lines you need into the family. It will add those types to the availible options.
