- In this movie I would like to talk…about some of the constraints that we…can apply in our Revit model.…Revit has a lot of opportunities…for us to apply what I like to call smarts…to the geometry in our model.…So, we can apply different kinds of relationships…that are maintained throughout the course…of working in a particular project…and as designs change we can rely…on the fact that these constraints are gonna be maintained.…So, let me show you a few examples of that.…I'm gonna start off by zooming in over here…in this break room area and let's just say…for the sake of argument that I wanted this door…to maintain a certain distance off of this column here…so that if the column moves that the door…would maintain that clearance.…
Now, to do that I wanna make sure that the…spacing is what I want it to be in the first place.…So, I'm gonna select the door and it will display…the usual temporary dimensions.…Now, I want the door to be measured off the column…not the walls so the first thing I need to do…is adjust that temporary dimension.…

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.
