Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding symbols, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Architectural drawings incorporate…many kinds of symbols.…Revit has dedicated tools for…text and dimensions,…many kinds of tags, and certain kinds of notes.…But there's many symbols that…don't have their own dedicated tools.…So we sorta have a catch all tool in Revit called,…just a Symbol tool,…and we can use that to add…any variety of miscellaneous symbols.…So in this movie, I'm gonna just demonstrate…the use of the Symbol tool, and work with…some symbols that are both in the template,…and some ones that we can load in…from the provided content.…
You can also make your own symbols,…but that'll be out of the scope…of what we'll cover here.…So if you need additional symbols that are not in…the out of the box offerings,…you certainly have that option.…I'm in a file called Symbols.…It's just a floor plan view with some…dimensions and notes on it already,…but I wanna add a few symbols.…Maybe a North arrow, a bar scale.…Stuff like that.…If I go to the Annotate tab, way over here…on the right hand side we'll find the Symbol tool.…

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.
