Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding legend views, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- If you'd like to add a legend to your project perhaps…showing each kind of door or window that you used…within Elevation View or some notes indicating…its construction or its function, there's no need…to draw this manually.…A legend view in Revit allows you to place…a graphical representation of any family…used in your project.…You'll be able to control the scale and the level of detail,…and you'll be able to insert it as either a plan…or an elevation symbol.…And the nice thing about a legend view is that…these graphics are only representational,…and so they won't be included in any counts in your models,…so they won't throw off your schedules…or anything like that.…
So I'm in a file here called Legends,…and I'd like to take a look at this feature…by creating a door types legend.…So it's pretty common in architectural drawings…for us to create a legend showing an elevation…of each of our doors so that will be a good example…for us to look at here.…So on the Project Browser, I have a Legends branch,…and it's currently empty 'cause there's no legends…

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.
