Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding solid geometry, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Once you have the basic framework of your family set up,…with reference planes, constraints, and parameters,…it's time to start adding some geometry.…In this movie, we're gonna look at adding…solid-form geometry to our family.…So, I'm in a file called Adding Solids,…and it is slightly different than where we left off…in the previous movie, so you might want to use this one…even if you've been following along in your own.…But let me just point out to you what's different about it.…I've added two reference planes here in the elevation view.…The top one is at 2' - 7" off the floor.…And the other ones at 0' - 3".…
And both of those I created a dimension and locked it.…And a dimension and locked it.…So, that's gonna establish those two heights…and keep them locked at that distance off the floor.…So, that's the only thing I changed there.…All right, I want to make sure my floor plan is active.…And if you don't have tiled views you might wanna make sure…that you open up your front and your left…and your 3D view and tile them like I've done here.…

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.
