Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Refining a layout with temporary dimensions, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
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 are 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 am going to start by selecting grid line A. What you'll see is on screen…
