Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding doors and windows, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie we're gonna place doors and windows…in our two bedroom condominium unit.…Now I have a completed version of the wall layout…here on screen and I'm gonna start with the doors.…So, I'll go over here to the Architecture tab,…and I'll click the Door tool,…or you can type d + r for the door shortcut.…Now the default template that we started this project with…included just the single-flush door family…and all of its types that you see here.…I've preloaded a few other door families into this file…and I'm gonna show you how I did that in a few moments…but for starters, I'm gonna start with this…Door-Interior-Single-Flush-Panel-Wood family…and it's 36 by 84 inch type,…so I'll choose that,…and I'm gonna use this door as the entrance…to the condominium unit,…and that entrance is over here on the righthand side.…

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.
