Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Accessing Revit options, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie we're going to look at the…overall system-wide options that Revit has…available to us.…Now I should point out that most of these…options will probably be set by some sort…of a CAD or BIM manager, if you work in a firm,…and most of the time these settings are,…what I would term, "set it and forget it"…options, so once they've been configured to…your liking, you rarely have to change them…unless there's some change in circumstance…that requires it.…So these settings are not stored with…each project, in other words.…They're stored with the Revit environment…and they follow from project to project.…
Now I don't actually have any projects open…right now and it's not necessary to open…a project to get to the options.…You can access them without anything…open onscreen.…The first option I'm going to look at is…how I'm signed in.…So at the top rightand corner of the screen…you can see that there are several icons…and one of them has the sign-in option,…that's right here, and you can see…that that's labelled Autodesk 360.…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
