Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating custom sections, part of BIM Manager: Managing Revit.
- [Instructor] Creating custom sections requires…two steps, as well.…First, we'll need to make the head…then we'll need to make the tail.…Let's open up Revit.…Under Families, let's go New.…Go to Annotations.…Let's go to Section Head.…Let's click Open.…Now I'm going to zoom into here.…And we're going to delete this note.…Now I'm going to keep this circle,…but I'm just going to put my own custom pointer on it.…So I'm going to go to Create.…Line.…I'm going to pick a point right here.…
I want to come out one eighth of an inch.…I want to do the same over here.…I'm going to come over one eighth.…Now I'm going to come up at 45 degrees.…I'll just go past it.…I'll do the same here.…Until it hits it.…I'll just trim that out.…Now I'll put a little radius on the tips.…So I want to go to Create.…I'm going to go to Line.…I'm going to click on Fillet Arc.…
Give it a one 32nd radius.…Kind of silly looking, but…that's fine.…Hit Escape a few times.…Now I'm going to go to Create.…I'm going to go to Label.…I want to make sure it's right in the middle…
