Creating a detail callout

Details are an integral part of any architectural documentation package. One of the challenges in working with building information modeling in Revit is there is a temptation to over-model. In other words, it is theoretically possible to add items like flashing or fasteners or many of the other small items directly to your model. However, typically such items would only need to show in large scale details. Therefore resist the temptation to model such elements. Keep your models at a scale of about eighth to quarter-inch detail. There is little payoff in modeling items beyond that and you often pay a price in diminished computer performance.

For such items, we will continue to rely on detail drawings, which have always been part of an architectural communication. Revit offers a full complement of tools to facilitate detail drawings and does so in a way that maximizes the potential of both the live 3D model and the large-scale detail embellishments. So let's get started in this movie by ...
