So give it a go! It would be a great exercise on use of the family editor along with some advanced modeling techniques. Giving the task I would probably do the pool walls as walls, the pool floor as a floor, or is suppose you could do the pool as a family wih sweeps and solids. It could even be made to be parametric with additional nested components like ladders and diving boards that could be controlled via visability and linked parameters. Give it a try and post if you get stuck.

No, if you do the pool as a family you will have to use solids, sweeps, revolves and voids to create the geometry of the pool. If you are going to do as a family and want to make it parametric, then start by building the bones of the family first which are your reference planes and lines. Make sure to add parameters to the reference lines and flex them to make sure they behave. One that is done, start building the geometry of the familiy on the reference planes. It is probaly best to start with the generic model template and go from there.

from the way you describe it, it does sound preety intense doing one from scratch. i have modifed a few pools. and i havent had much experince in using sweeps and revloves.
