Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a construction detail, part of Up and Running with Revit.
In this movie I'd like to look at the detailing process in Revit.…Not everything that you create in your Revit project will be part of the model.…There are many advantages of building model elements because they appear in…multiple views. And when you change them, they change…everywhere. But not everything needs to show in all…views. And so, there are certainly plenty of…instances where we have items that are considered construction details that…really only show in one place. And the quantity of information that's…displayed in those views is at a level of detail that makes it impractical to…consider modeling all those elements. Consider things like bolts and screws and…flashing and mortar joints and clips and hangers.…
None of these items would really give you much benefit to adding them…3-dimensionally in your model. They would just simply serve to weigh down…the model and impede performance, without really adding a whole lot of benefit.…So at some point you need to stop modeling and begin drafting.…And essentially, what we do in a Revit process is we do a hybrid.…
