In this video, Shaun Bryant demonstrates how to add walls in Revit using the linked CAD file for reference.
- [Instructor] So as you can see,…we're staying in our 09_OFFICE.rvt file.…And I've left it in the same state as it was…at the end of the previous video,…where we jumped into that default 3D view…to check where our structural columns were going.…Now if I want to get back to the view I was in,…the 00-Ground Floor plan,…I simply go to the Project Browser,…double click here on 00-Ground Floor,…and that takes me back to my plan view.…Now we're gonna look at adding some walls.…So again, we're gonna zoom in…on that left-hand side of the floor plan.…
Just pan across a little bit, like so,…so that you can see the walls…on the left-hand end of the building.…Now, when you're placing your walls,…again you need to check your options bar.…And also, some of the settings that you might want to use…when you're working with the Draw panel…in the ribbon as well.…So I'm gonna go to the Architecture tab on the ribbon.…There's Walls there.…And you just want architectural walls.…Just select that one on the flyout for now,…you don't need structural walls.…
