Learn modeling basics and how to use snaps to their full advantage in this Revit Architecture 2015 online video. Revit Architecture is the de-facto standard tool for architecture and design, and snaps can be used for a number of applications to include snapping behavior; that is, the rules that allow the software to lock onto key increments.
…In this movie, I want to show you the snapping behavior in Revit.…Snaps are just simply rules that allow…the software to lock onto certain key increments.…Either length increments, or geometric points on objects.…Revit has a few useful snapping features.…We have our length increment snap feature, which…is tied to the zoom level and the screen.…And we have object snapping behavior.…Things like end points and mid points.…And I'd like to show you both of those features here in this movie.…I'm in a file called Snaps, and this is just based on the default template.…
And, to show you the length increment snapping…feature, I need to zoom out a little bit.…So, the easiest way to do this is to use the Zoom Out(2x) command right here.…So, if it's already chosen, you can just pick it off the list.…Otherwise, you can choose it here from the drop down.…And that will back up the screen a little bit.…Now in the Architecture tab, I'm going to go over here to the…Wall command or type W-A, and I'm just going to click any start point.…

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.
