Jeremy Tammik recently posted a “complete illustrated Key Family Concepts slide deck” as part of a detailed post about the basics of Family Creation.
Sometimes, putting a bit of thought and planning into your family design well lead to far better results than simply ‘diving in there’. The following post shows a list of such requirements. Essentially, you write a ‘brief’ for your family, and then seek to meet the requirements of that brief.
However, at times I do things the complete wrong way about – like modelling them inplace, then converting them to component families and trying to figure out the origin and constraints later on – very messy and definitely not best_practice 🙂
