I'm in a file called Detail Components and in this movie we're going to begin bringing in detail components and adding them to this view. So currently all we're seeing is 3D geometry. We've cropped it down, and we've isolated the geometry we're interested in. But a big part of the detailing process in Revit is to now add two-dimensional embellishments on top of this 3D view to indicate the kind of things that again would not really be advantageous to model in 3D.

So, we're going to go over here to the Annotate tab and the Component tool, and we'll start with the Detail Component. Now the Component tool is a dropdown, and it will remember the last tool you had active. So if you had one of these other tools active the last time, you might see something d...
