Ceilings in Revit Architecture are positioned at specific heights, with single or multiple layers. Creating a ceiling in this application starts with a 2-D sketch, similar to creating a floor or roof. Work with ceilings in Revit Architecture 2015 through this online course, which covers how to choose common ceiling types and use the Ceiling menu.
…Ceiling elements are similar to floors.…They are horizontal planes centered a certain height above the…finished floor and can include layers of material in the construction.…You can choose from common types like 2x4 grid…or dry wall ceiling or even create your own.…The fastest way to create a ceiling is to use the auto ceiling option.…This tool automatically creates a ceiling from the walls that enclose the space.…In cases where you don't have walls or where the ceiling shape is…irregular, you can sketch the ceiling using…many of the familiar sketch base tools.…So, I'm in a file here called ceilings and I'm in the level one floor plan view.…
Now the first thing I want to talk about is a common mistake that we've…all made when we first do ceilings and that is to go to the architecture tab…and go right to the ceilings tool, I've got my automatic ceiling, and click a…point, and an error will occur and that is because I'm still in a floor plan.…Ceilings don't display in a floor plan view, naturally.…So, I'm going to Esc out of the command a couple times…

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.
