Many elements in Revit Architecture 2015 automatically act as a room boundary, making sure the room outline is shown as complete. Sometimes you may need to override this, such as when you design a built-in closet or a room divider, where the automatic setting would give an unwanted room boundary. Doing this is simple in principle, but you'll need to use the Schedule tool to avoid confusion. Learn more about understanding room bounding elements in this online video.
…As we saw when adding rooms, rooms require boundaries…in order to give us square footage and perimeter information.…Without the boundaries, the room would report as unbounded.…Many elements in Revit an be room-bounding by default.…This includes walls and floors and ceilings and even columns.…However when appropriate, and if our design calls for it,…we can actually turn off the room-bounding feature in certain circumstances.…We also have room separators that stand in for room bounding elements in…those situations where we don't actually have any geometry to separate two rooms.…So in this movie, I'd like to discuss the room bounding feature in a little more…detail and look at some scenarios where we…might want to manage which objects are room bounding.…
So, I'm in a file called Room Bounding and I've got all of my rooms…placed in here, and I'm going to zoom in, on this bedroom here in the corner.…And I'm going to move my mouse around.…And as we talked about, you're looking for…this little X that goes through the room here.…

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.
