Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating and configuring a new project, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Many project settings are available in a Revit project.…Even though you begin your project with a template file,…there are certainly some settings that you'll want to…doublecheck and possibly change with each project.…Some of these include really simple things like…the project location, the address and maybe the temporary…dimension settings.…So in this movie we're gonna create a new project…and configure a few of those settings.…So let's take a look.…Now we could easily start with the default template,…but I'd actually prefer to start with one of the templates…that gives us a little bit more structure to begin with.…So I'm gonna click the New link right here.…
If you watched the earlier movie on project templates,…then you saw that we could click this Browse button here,…and there were some other choices for us to use.…In this case I'm gonna use the commercial default,…and I'm gonna click Open, and click OK.…Now this gives me some basic views and a few schedules…and some sheets, and so it's a good starting point…

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.
