Often, in order to create complete, solid 3-D objects in Revit Architecture, it's necessary to combine multiple objects into one. Thus, you can use the program to create a blend. A blend is a solid shape that changes along its length from one starting shape to an ending shape. The blending tool essentially allows you to blend shapes at their boundaries in order to make them one. Watch this online video to learn more about the basics of adding blends in Revit Architecture 2015.
…So the pool table playing surface is coming along nicely.…But unless we invent the anti-gravity device, we're going to…need some sort of support to hold this thing up.…So why don't we look at creating some legs here for the table in this movie?…And we could use really any of the forms…here on the Create tab to create some legs.…But in this movie I’d like to look at creating a blend.…So that will give us an opportunity to look at a different kind of form.…So to start off with, I’m in a file called Adding Blend, and I’m going to…maximize up my floor plan view, just to make it a little easier to see.…
To start off with, we're going to need some new reference planes.…So on the Create panel, I'll come over here and click the Reference Plane…button, and I'm going to create two vertical…reference planes over in this location here.…Now you may notice that I'm making them wider than the pool table.…That's actually deliberate, okay, because it makes it a…lot easier to come back and dimension those later.…Now if I catch it while I'm placing them, I can actually highlight and edit…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
