Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Ribbon and the QAT, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
In this movie, we're gonna talk about two…primary interface elements in the Revit user interface,…the Ribbon and the Quick Access Toolbar.…Now the Quick Access Toolbar is displaying currently,…but most of the tools are greyed out…and the Ribbon is also mostly unavailable.…So in order to talk about these two interface elements…we really need to have a file open in the background.…So I'm just gonna click the Architectural Template link…here and just create an empty architectural file.…Now as you can see the interface changes when you…do that, and across the top of the screen is where…we find the Quick Access Toolbar at the very top, and…then beneath that, the Ribbon, which is organized into…tabs, starting with Architecture on the left…and ending with Modify on the right.…
So let's start by talking about the Ribbon a little bit.…The Ribbon is really the primary interface element…that you have in Revit, and all of the commands that…you're gonna access in the software are located…somewhere on the Ribbon.…Now I'm on the Architecture tab to start off with.…

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.
