Not sure where your plumbing fixtures need to go? Learn more about add plumbing fixtures and other components in Revit Architecture 2015 with online video in addition to other modeling basics. You'll navigate this application of modeling basics as you lay out the floor plan for a two-bedroom condominium and build upon the principles you've learned in prior videos.
…Our two bedroom condo unit is coming along nicely.…But it takes a little bit more than just…walls, doors and windows to make a typical building layout.…So in this movie, we'll look at the Component tool.…Which is the tool we use to bring in a variety of miscellaneous items.…As a rule of thumb, if you don't see a dedicated tool for the…item you're trying to insert, it's probably…going to be under the Component tool.…So, in other words, if I wanted a door or a window or a column, I have…buttons for those, but I don't see a…button for toilets or for furnaces or for washer-dryers.…
So it's a pretty good bet that I'm going to find those items under Component.…It's sort of a catch-all button for all the…miscellaneous items that you want to insert in a model.…So when I click on the Component tool,…it'll take me to the modify place component tab.…And if I open up the list, you can see that…what's loaded in my default template is a rather eclectic list.…I have a desk, a parking space, and a tree.…So, as you can see, we really do have a variety of items to choose from here.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
Q: Which content in this course is different or not relevant for Revit LT?
