- In this movie, I wanna show you…the snapping behavior in Revit.…Snaps are just simply rules…that allow the software to lock on…to 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 endpoints and midpoints.…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 dropdown…and that will back up the screen a little bit.…Now, on the Architecture tab,…I'm gonna go over here to the Wall command or type w + a…I'm just gonna click any start point.…Now, you'll notice that the temporary dimension says zero.…

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.
