Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating company-wide borders, part of BIM Manager: Managing Revit.
- [Teacher] I said this already,…but the chances of you having…an existing AutoCAD border around is pretty high.…So high that this video will have us…importing an AutoCAD border and exploiting it,…then using that border to create a Revit border.…With this video, I'd like to show you…how to AutoCAD border, then clean it up and add labels.…So in AutoCAD, I'm going to zoom in,…and notice a lot of white.…That's because I like to put everything on layer zero first.…That way, I don't have to purge out…a bunch of different line types when I'm in Revit.…Let's select this item,…and it's just a polyline.…I select my text, and it's just a dumb piece of text…that's sitting there.…
Now when I zoom in, we'll see that I have…whatever fonts I want.…We're going to change this up in a little bit.…But as we investigate around,…we'll see that this is a pretty clean drawing.…So with that, I'm going to jump into Revit,…and under Families, I'm going to go New.…Now, I'm going to browse to my default directory,…and I'm going to go into my Titleblocks.…
