Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding dimensions, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- This movie, we're gonna look a little closer…at the dimensions feature in Revit.…We've already looked at dimensions…in a few other movies, but mainly we were…interested in using dimensions…as a tool to help us build our model.…In this movie, I'm gonna focus on dimensions…as an annotation tool to actually help…enhance our construction documents…and prepare drawings for printing.…I'm in a file called "dimensions,"…and I'm looking at a level one floor plan view,…and I'm just gonna add some dimensions…to various parts of this file here,…just to show you how it works.…So, what I'm gonna start off with is,…I'm gonna zoom in, over in…this location over here, and,…I just wanna show you the basics…of how the dimension tool works.…
Now we've covered some of this,…so some of this will be review.…We can get to the dimension tool in a couple places.…We can go the annotate tab and…there actually are several dimension tools,…I'm gonna focus on the "align" dimension tool…because this is the one I use 99% of the time,…so you're free to explore some of these others…

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.
