Are you not sure how to reign in your architectural plan with the de-facto standard tool for architecture and design? Learn the modeling basics of using constraints in Revit Architecture 2015 with this online video as you lay out the floor plan for a two-bedroom condominium and build upon the principles you've learned in prior videos.
…So I'm going to add a little bit more smarts…to some of the dimensions here in my file.…So, Revit offers us a few different kinds of constraints that we can work with.…And I'd like to show you a few of those here.…So, I'm in a file called Constraints.…And this is just a version of our two bedroom condo.…And I'm going to start in this area down here.…Just zoom in a region on this closet here.…And you can see two small problems.…One is that I don't have a whole lot of room for the doorway right there.…
So I might want to reduce the size of this closet slightly.…And two this door in the closet's not centered.…Now, perhaps I'm going to consider a few different positions for this door.…So, what I can do is, build a relationship between the door and the closet.…And it's going to start with a permanent dimension.…Now, up until now, we've done everything with temporary dimensions.…But up here on my Quick Access Toolbar, is the Aligned Dimension tool.…The shortcut is D+I.…
Permanent dimensions are just as their name implies.…

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.
