- In this movie we're gonna look…at the component-based stair.…Revit has two kinds of stairs, and in the previous movie,…we looked at the sketch-based stair,…and this time around, we're gonna look at…the component-based stair.…Now in some ways, the component-based stair…is a little bit more robust than the sketch-based stair…and so I'd like to focus on some of…those differences between the two.…I'm in a file called Component Stairs…and one of the differences that we have…between component and sketch-based stair is,…a component-based stair can be built in 2D or 3D,…or you can work in both views simultaneously.…
So let me demonstrate here.…I'm currently in a floor plan, level one.…But also in this exercise file,…I have a view here called 3D Stair Section.…I'm gonna double-click and open that up.…Zoomed in a little too close there.…Let's zoom it out just so you can see.…And this is a cropped view of the lobby area…that we were looking at in the plan view.…Now I'll talk about how I created this view…and the cutaway views in a future chapter,…

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.
