Hello,

I just want some advice on the best way to approach building my electrical box family.

I've got about 40 different configurations that I would like to switch back and fourth from. Without having a million families. 

Are "types" the best way to approach, or is there a better way out there? 

Thanks

40 different modeling configurations or could some of these 40 be other properties?

A family with 40 modeling types would be hard to build and maintain as well as maybe being too large and very hard to use. I personally hate all in one families.  That is why our door families are not all in one.  They are defined by basic differences and then use types to control fundamental variables.

Types are the way to go but maybe you should have some other differences that could be defined to allow a logical grouping of these in smaller numbers.

I attached an excel file with all of the different parts and pieces. As well as all of the different configurations. 

There are a lot more items than I thought. 

Let me know if you don't get it.

Thanks for your help
