- [Voiceover] In this movie, we'll add…some columns to our building layout.…Revit has two different kinds of columns that we can use.…There's architectural columns and there are…structural columns, and we'll look…at both of them in this movie.…An architectural column is sort of…a simple version of a column.…You can use either/or, in your projects,…but I actually like to use both.…I like to use the architectural columns…as the column enclosure.…Sort of the finish material, like the drywall…or whatever else might be wrapping around the structure,…and then of course I use the structural column…for the actual structural material.…
The steel or the concrete that's…actually holding up the building,…so I'm gonna start with the architectural columns.…Now both of them can be accessed from…this drop down button right here,…and here is my Column Architectural,…so I'll go ahead and choose that.…You'll see a small little rectangle appear on my cursor,…and that's because we're using…the rectangular column family here, and it has three sizes.…

First, get comfortable with the Revit environment, and learn to set up a project and add the grids, levels, and dimensions that will anchor your design. Then author Paul F. Aubin helps you dive into modeling: adding walls, doors, and windows; creating and mirroring groups; linking to external assets and DWG files; and working with floors, roofs, and ceilings.
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 drawings so all the components are clearly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
