Revit provides an option for easily adding structural and architectural columns to projects. Columns are typical in many building plans, and minimizing the time to place these columns speeds up the creation process. Learn how to add columns in Revit Architecture 2015 by following this online tutorial, which explains how to place structural and architectural columns.
…Most buildings have columns in at least some locations.…Whether your project has one column or hundreds,…the process to add them is fairly simple.…Revit includes two types of columns.…It includes architectural columns and structural columns.…We can find those on the Architecture tab, on the Column button.…Here's Structural Column button.…And the Architectural Column button.…Typically an architectural column is used to represent either a column wrap or…a rough placement column that will then…later be replaced by the structural engineer.…
A Structural Column is typically used to actually…represent material that's really holding up the building.…So, let's start with the architectural columns and take a look.…And then we'll see how that ties in later with the structural columns.…So I'm going to choose the Column Architectural command and let's take a…look at a few of the settings before we get started here.…Like, many other commands, that takes me to my Modify tab, Place Column.…I've got some settings here on my Options bar.…

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.
