Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding room bounding elements, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- 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 can 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 when 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.…

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.
