The ability to add dimensions to your drafting files can be a tremendous aid when creating building plan designs. In Revit, the Dimensions tool will allow you to add dimensions to your plans. Learn how to use the Dimensions tool as a device of annotation in this online tutorial, as well as some time-saving tips and tricks.
…In this movie we're going to look a little closer at the dimensions feature in Revit.…We've already looked at dimensions in a few other movies, but mainly we…were interested in using dimensions as a tool to help us build our model.…In this movie, I'm going to focus on dimensions as an annotation tool…to actually help enhance our construction…documents and prepare drawings for printing.…I'm in a file called Dimensions and I'm looking at a level one floor plan view.…And I'm just going to add some dimensions to various parts…of this file here just to show you how it works.…So what I'm going to start off with is, I'm…going to zoom in over in this location over here.…
And I just want to show you the basics of how the Dimension tool works.…Now we've covered some of this, so some of this will be review.…We can get to the Dimension tool in a couple places, we…can go to the Annotate tab and there actually are several dimension tools.…I'm going to focus on the Align dimension tool because…this is the one I use 99% of the time.…

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.
