If your job requires working on Revit models created by someone else, then you have probably run into situations where portions of the model need to be reworked. Perhaps you're a subcontractor or an interior designer who needs to accurately convey finishes. Traditionally tasks like these would require a good deal of time, but with the three unique construction modeling tools in Revit, you can now add the details and refinements you need without rebuilding the entire model. Paul F. Aubin shows how model elements can be broken down into parts and articulated with their own finishes, materials, and other details. To assist in documentation, Paul explores assemblies: detailed drawings of isolated portions of the model. And with the Displace feature he shows how to create compelling "exploded view" illustrations to convey how things fit together.
Before we get started, let's take a minute to talk about units. I'm recording this course using the US imperial version of Revit. Therefore, Revit defaults to imperial measurement system of feet and inches. On screen, I just have project one open, which is a blank empty project that I created from the out of the box template. It's not really important what the file is that I have open on screen right now. But I do want to show you how I've configured the units throughout the rest of this course. If you go to the manage tab, you'll find the project units command right here on the settings panel.
So if I click that, we can choose any unit measuring system that we like. So what I've done in most of the exercise files that we're using in this course is I've chosen decimal feet. And I've set the rounding to three decimal places. Now, I've done that so that both imperial unit users, and metric unit users can feel comfortable by just typing in numbers. So instead of having to type the unit it with a unit symbol, we can now just type the number in as either a whole number, or up to three decimal places. So you'll find that all the exercise files that I've provided with the course are set this way and if you're using your own files in the course and you want to follow along in a similar fashion you can go ahead and use the project unit command to make yours match mine.
