- [Paul] Hello! My name is Paul F. Aubin and I'm very excited to welcome you to this course where we will explore the creation of signage packages in Revit. In this course we'll explore how to create 3D model elements for your building signage elements. Whether it's a company logo, or just the name plates outside of each room, you can quickly and easily create these assets using simple Revit families. By incorporating 2D symbols directly into these model families, we can easily create signage plans. Furthermore you can add key data to these elements so that signage schedules accurately reflect the entire signage package.
There's no need to leave Revit to create these kinds of deliverables in other software. However, I will show you ways that you can leverage assets from Adobe Illustrator and AutoCAD as well. So if you're interested in building architectural signage and signage documentation directly in your existing Revit workflow, then you've come to the right place. Let's get started!
