Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding dimensions, part of Up and Running with Revit.
In earliest schematic design phases, it's okay to rough in the locations of walls…and other geometry, where you think they might go.…But at some point you're going to want to refine those layouts and make them a…little bit more precise. Now I'd rather do this primarily with…dimensions, we have other ways, but dimensions provide a really quick and easy…way. And move geometry around and so in this…movie I'd like to show you two kinds of dimensions temporary and permanent…dimensions. I have a file called dimensions and it's…got a really rough wall layout here. It's in the middle first of all.…Now I'm going to select this wall here and center this horizontal wall by clicking on…it. And what you see when I click on it is two…dimensions one that goes to the exterior wall down below, and another one that goes…to the next nearest interior wall. Now that's the first thing that you…want to understand about temporary dimensions.…
Is Revit just sort of decides what nearby geometry it thinks is the best reference.…
