Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Aligning views with a guide grid, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- As you continue to compose your set of sheets,…it's often desirable to have views…not only on the same sheet…but views across multiple sheets aligned with one another.…It makes for a neater and more professional presentation.…Now, aligning views within the same sheet is pretty easy…to do because Revit's sensitive to that just by default.…So, if I move this view out of the way…and then kind of move it back again,…we've sort of seen before that Revit will actually…show a little dashed line and kind of show us and snap…when those two views are actually aligned to one another.…
So it's really easy to achieve that within the same sheet.…But if you've got a different sheet with similar views,…like for example this reflected ceiling plan here,…let me do window tile,…sometimes that can be a little bit trickier.…If you compare the amount of space here…between the floor plan and the edge of the sheet…and the amount of space here between the reflected…ceiling plan and the edge of the sheet,…clearly they're pretty different from one another.…

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.
