You can use either of the following workflows to create a part from an element that you select in the drawing area, either in the current project or in a linked model. (For a list of the elements and families you can make parts from, see Parts Overview
.) In the case of elements with layers or subcomponents, such as walls, individual parts will be created for those layers. For other elements, a single part element is created. In either case, the resultant part or parts can then be divided
into smaller parts. Note that project
parameters and level data propagate to parts.
Select elements first
- In the drawing area, select the elements from which you want to create parts.
