Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding detail components, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie we'll continue working…on our detail and we'll look at Detail Components.…Detail Components are two-dimensional families…that represent model objects.…Now, they're two-dimensional and they're view specific,…and this is important to understand.…You can create very detailed versions…of elements that represent model objects…but because they're two-dimensional…and because they're view specific…they only show in the view that you draw them in,…in the Detail view in this case.…And that allows you to keep the overall…size of your model manageable…and not have a lot of details created in the 3D model…that don't really give you any benefit.…
So, let's take a look at the process…of placing Detail Components.…I'm in a file called Detail Components…and I'm looking at my Stair Landing Detail…which is a section cut through the landing here.…So, let's zoom in a little bit like so…and I'll start with a really simple Detail Component.…We're gonna look at a break line object.…So, I'm gonna go to the Annotate tab…

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.
