Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding openings, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Once you have the basic geometry like walls,…floors and roofs in place in your model,…you'll begin the steady process…of refining the model as the design progresses.…In many cases you will find the need…to cut holes in these elements…like simple passageways through walls,…shafts for floors, elevators and equipment in floors,…and skylights and dormers and roofs.…In some cases you'll find it easiest…to edit the sketch of the element in question…to represent such penetration.…This approach would work well for floors…which represent double volumes spaces, for example.…In other cases, you might use an opening object…to actually cut through the solid geometry.…
So in this movie we're gonna explore…a few examples of opening objects.…And I'm gonna start with a shaft opening,…and the file I have open onscreen is called Shaft.…Now the opening objects are on the Architecture tab,…you can find them here on the Opening panel.…We're not going to do all five opening types,…but we are going to look at a couple of these.…And again, I'm gonna start with the Shaft opening.…

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.
