- [Voiceover] In this movie we're going to continue…our explanation of the curtain wall…and I'm going to build a custom design.…So what we saw in the previous movie is…that if you do a curtain wall type…you can configure a set spacing in both…the horizontal and vertical dimension,…but what you can't do is actually…do any kind of variation, so like even if you…want to do something as simple as an AVA rhythm,…you can't do that in the curtain wall type.…So the way that you do that is actually…create a really generic curtain wall…and then come in and place the grids and mullions manually.…So I want to show you that process here.…
I'm going to create a custom entrance for the building…so I'm going to zoom in right over here in this location…and I've removed the door so that we can just work…in this clean area right here.…Now I'm going to go to the Architecture tab…and click on the Wall tool, or you could type w + a.…It remembers that I previously used the Storefront,…but for this example I'm actually going to use…

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.
