- 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 the 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 gonna 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,…

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.
