Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Import tips, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- I'd like to wrap up our look at importing…and linking CAD files in Revit projects…with just a handful of tips…that you might wanna keep in mind…when you're working with CAD files.…So, I'm in a file here called Importing Tips…and I'm in a drafting view…that has an embedded CAD file in it.…Can see that file right here.…So, the first thing I wanna do is look…at the query tool in a little bit more detail.…We've discussed this in a previous movie…but if we click on Query what we haven't discussed yet…is these buttons down here.…Now, you notice that there's a…Delete button and a Hide in View button…Now, that item I just selected,…this hollow metal frame right here,…you can see is currently on a layer called A-Detail Bold…and then down here I can either delete that layer…or hide it in the view.…
Now, I'll show you delete in a minute.…Let's do Hide in View right now.…So, I'm gonna click that and you're gonna see…that that element disappears.…Now, it turns out that that was…the only element on that layer…so that's the only element that disappeared.…

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.
