Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing the opening, part of Revit: Families.
In this lesson, we're going to browse for a door template, and start modifying the …wall within the template to fit our new opening. …Okay, let's get a little more complex, shall we? …I'm picking a door for this series, because a door can have a lot to offer in …terms of complexity. Let's start with the template. …Yeah, I rant about using the correct template, however, these templates are …not one size fits all. The template we are going to use is …obviously a door template. It points us in the right direction. …But I want to make a cool door, not a lame door.…
The objective of this exercise is to find the door template, delete some existing …3D jambs, and to add a radius to the opening. …Open up Revit and follow along. What I'd like to do is, under Families, …let's click the New button. Let's scroll down till we find Door. …Let's click Open. As we can see, it already has some stuff …in place. The flip grips are definitely nice, but …there's a few things that aren't so great, such as the door jamb. …
