I designed the first component for the CURTAIN WINDOW for the Ligini's building.

I decided to make an element composed of an opening window and a glass parapet. 

To start I opened  a new family - CURTAIN WINDOW 

Then with the REFERENCE PLANE I traced the edge lines of the fixed frame and of the mobile frame.

The first step to design the panel was creat a new family     METRIC WALL PANEL (in this new family I created the component of the single panel of the future facade) - OPEN ( I saved this file and I gave to it a name).

I created the surface of the panel with the command REFERNCE LINE but be attentio tha you creat this surface in the front elevation

I did the third delivery using the bench I designed for the second delivery.  I opened the mother family to create new shared parameters.  

In order to do so I used the command FAMILY TYPES - ADD - SHARED PARAMETER - SELECT - YES

As for the second delivery i started opening a NEW family - GENERIC METRIC MODEL FACED BASED- OPEN

 I opened this new file and I decided the elevation to realized the section of my element. Than I drew the REFERNCE PLANE( each one for each bord of the object ) 

Than I assign the dimension to all the distances

I have create with Revit the bench designed in the picture above. First of all i studied the pieces that compose it, two hiron structure that are the base of the bench, the overstructure in wood and the bolts that hold the all. I created one family for each piece [ FILE-NEW-FAMILY-METRIC GENERIC MODEL FACE BASE ]. I decide the face view according to the function tha the object will have.
