Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding plumbing fixtures and other components, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- [Voiceover] Our two bedroom condo unit…is coming along nicely, but it takes a little bit more than…just walls, doors and windows to make…your 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 gonna be under the Component tool.…So, in other words, if I wanted a door or window or 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 gonna…find those items under "Component."…It's sort of a catchall 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…

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.
