Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Locating walls, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this and the next few movies,…we'll continue working with walls…and begin laying out a two bedroom condominium unit.…So we're going to apply what we've learned…in some of the previous movies…and apply it here to an actual floor plan.…What I'm working with here is a file called Locating Walls…and all it contains is the outline perimeter of the unit.…And what we're gonna focus on is the interior partitions.…We'll start in the Architecture tab with the Wall tool.…Can type WA or you can click on the tool.…And over here on the Properties palate…I want to change the wall type…to an interior type partition.…
So there are several different sizes here,…and I'm gonna choose this one, 4 and 7/8 inch partition.…So that's roughly a 5 inch partition…and it's basically a stud with a layer…of drywall on each side,…which is pretty standard interior construction.…Now I'm going to leave all the height settings,…it's going to be going up to level two…and I'm gonna stick with the center line location line.…I find that to be the most logical choice…

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.
