Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Refining a layout with temporary dimensions, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- 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 those objects over time.…So I call this sketch and then modify.…So in this movie we're gonna 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.…
Th 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 gonna start by selecting grid line A.…What you'll see is on-screen here, in addition…

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.
