In Revit Architecture, the concept of a room doesn't equate to a collection of walls or the space in between them. Instead, the software treats the room as an object in its own right, one which just so happens to be the size and shape of the available space between the walls. This has implications for the way in which you create and modify rooms. Watch this online video to learn more about how to add rooms in Revit Architecture 2015.
…In this movie, we're going to talk about the room element.…Now, a room is something that's pretty well understood without too…much explanation, after all, we occupy rooms in our everyday lives.…But what is a room really?…Is it the four walls that surround it or is it the space and the air thus enclosed?…This is precisely the challenge that the Rivet…programmers had to solve when devising the room object.…In Revit, we have room elements that are special…objects that automatically conform to the shape of surrounding geometry.…And thus accurately represent the space so enclosed.…
Rooms have some special behaviors in the way that they're added,…the way that they display, and the way that they're modified.…And so rooms will be the subject of this movie.…I'm in a file called adding rooms, and I'm in floor plan level one.…And up here on the Architecture tab I want to go…to the Room & Area panel and click the Room button.…Now, on the Modify Place Room tab we have a tag panel.…And you can see that there is a button…

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.
