Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding solid geometry, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
Once you have the basic framework of your family set up with reference planes, constraints …and parameters, it's time to start adding some geometry. …In this movie, we're going to look at adding solid-form geometry to our family. …So, I'm in a file called Adding Solids, and it is slightly different than where we left …off in the previous movie, so you might want to use this one, even if you've been following …along in your own. …But let me just point out to you what's different about it. …I've added two reference planes here in the elevation view. The top one is a two foot …seven off the floor and the other one is at three inches, and both of those I created a …dimension and locked it, and a dimension and locked it.…
So, that's going to establish those two heights and keep them locked at that distance off the floor. …So that's the only thing I changed there. All right! …I want to make sure my floor plan is active, and if you don't have tiled views, you might …want to make sure that you open up your Front and your Left and your 3D View and tile them …
