Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding openings, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.

So in this movie, we're going to explore a few examples of opening objects, and…I'm going to start with a shaft opening, and the file I have opened here on…screen 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.…
