Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using snaps, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
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 on the screen, and we have object…snapping behavior, things like endpoints and midpoints.…And I would 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 is 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 going to go over here to the Wall command or…type WA, I'm just going to click any start point.…
