- [Voiceover] Railings may have many…user configurable settings…and they have a feature that allows them to have…customizable top and handrails.…Those top and handrails can have…built in extension parameters…that will automatically extend the handrails…either below or above…the bottoms and tops of the stair runs…and this can help us build a railing type…that complies with local building codes.…So, in this movie,…we're gonna look at the process…to set up railing extensions.…Now, it's a fairly complex process.…
So, I've decided to create…a very simple exercise file…for this purpose,…but we're still gonna have several steps…that we're gonna have to go through,…so we have to be somewhat methodical…about the approach.…So, the first thing that I want to do…is I'm gonna take the two railings that I have…and they're currently the same.…They're 900mm pipe on both sides of the stair.…And I'm going to create two different types.…One on the left side of the stair,…which is gonna have a return that…goes back to the wall,…and one on the right side of the stair…

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.
