Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding units and numerical input, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Revit.
Once you have looked around the User Interface, the first thing you'll likely to want to do…is to draw something, and since you are used to working in AutoCAD, you probably want to draw that item to scale.…It won't be long before you notice that the dimension input in Revit is really quite different than it is in AutoCAD.…So in this movie we will discuss how to input dimensions and how to use units.…So I am in a file here called Condo Unit, and it is the same file we have been using…in the previous movie, so if you've had this file open, you might want to close it without…saving and just reopen a fresh copy.…You can open any file for this if you don't have access to the exercise files.…
I am going to start by drawing a wall, and I'm just in a move my mouse around on screen…and the first thing you are going to notice here is that there is these dimensions that…start to appear as I move my mouse around.…You are also going to see these dashed lines at logical locations.…So if I'm here, and things I want to continue from that existing wall or if I am here this…
