Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling basics, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Revit.
Once you get beyond the obvious differences in the User Interface one of the first things…are likely to discover about Revit is that all of the tools on the ribbon are named for actual things.…Instead of drawing lines in the shape of walls, you draw actual walls.…Instead of placing blocks that are configured to look like doors, we place actual doors, and so on.…In this movie we will introduce you to one of Revit's most fundamental concepts.…Instead of drafting, we will be modeling.…So, I am in a blank empty file here, this is just based off the default Architectural…template, and we are going to work completely from scratch.…
Now since most buildings have walls, that seems like a pretty good place to start to me.…So I am going to come over here to the Architecture tab and click on the Wall button.…Now I am going to accept most of the defaults here.…It's a generic 8-inch wall, that's fine, and I am going to focus on the shapes over here.…Now you could draw your walls line by line if you want, and I am going to undo that,…
