You set temporary dimensions in Revit Architecture to refine a rough layout, such as wall positioning. Temporary dimensions let you move objects already placed in the plan that need more defined positions. Refine a layout with temporary dimensions in Revit Architecture 2015 by using this online course to learn how to make changes to project dimensions.
…A very important basic concept to understand in…Revit is the way that precision is approached.…In Revit, what you typically do, is you place objects in a…general location and then you refine the placement of the objects over time.…So I call this sketch and then modify.…So in this movie, we're going to talk about temporary dimensions.…And temporary dimensions is a process that we use to take our…roughly placed objects and modify their positions to a more precise location.…So what I have here on screen is a file called Temporary Dims.…
And this is just a copy of the completed grid layout from the previous movie.…The grids here have been placed in rough locations.…But I want to start controlling these grids in a very precise way.…I want the measurement of the grid lines to the…face of the walls to be controlled very precisely, for example.…And I can do that in a variety of ways in Revit.…And the first way that I want to share with you is using temporary dimensions.…So I'm going to start by selecting grid line A.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
