Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding grids, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Like levels, grids provide organization…and structure to your project.…Where levels were horizontal datum elements,…cutting through the building at a certain height,…grids are vertical datum elements…that are located at certain locations along the building.…Grids are used typically to locate where…the columns occur in your projects.…And they provide key points of reference…for things like views and sheets.…Unlike levels, not all buildings need grids.…For example, most residential projects…don't have any need for a column grid.…Most commercial projects, on the other hand,…do have column grids.…
Therefore, the type of project that you're creating…will dictate your need for grids.…Now I'm in a project called Grids…and I'm looking at Floor Plan Level 1,…and I'm gonna go here to the architecture tab…and click on the Grid tool.…It's located here on the Datum panel.…When I click the Grid tool, there are a few…different shapes you can create,…and I'm gonna just stick with simple straight lines…for this example.…And for my first example, I'm just gonna draw a grid…

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.
