Adding solid geometry

To continue the process of building a simple model family, let's direct our attention to adding solid geometry. I am in a file called Adding Solids. We have a layout of Reference planes and constraints and parameters that we created in the Reference plane's parameters and constraints movie. And I am going to start my work here in the Plan View, and I'll go to the Home tab and create a Solid Extrusion. It's probably the simplest form of a 3D solid that we can create. Now Revit allows us to create both solid geometry, which represents actual physical solid things that we could touch, and then void geometry, which we'll cut away from solid geometry to make more interesting or complicated forms.

We'll look at void geometry in the next movie. Here I am going to just change to a simple rectangle shape and I'll go ahead and move my mouse over here and you'll notice that it will automatically snap to the Intersection between the two reference planes, so that's ...
