- [Voiceover] As you continue the process…of preparing a project for output,…such as creating a construction document set,…you're going to want to add more…than just text and dimensions.…Now, we've looked at dimensions and text…in the previous movies,…but there's all kinds of symbols…that we might want to add…to the various views in our project…to begin annotating certain aspects of the design.…So there are a few symbols already loaded here…into this project,…so let's start with those.…If we go over here to the Annotate tab,…we've got a Symbol tool right here,…and this just gives us access to a variety…of generic annotation symbols…that are available in the software.…
So I'm going to click on that,…and if I open up the type selector over here,…you're going to notice that…we have a center line symbol and a north arrow.…So let's start with the center line,…and I'll just sort of place it up here…in the upper portion of the plan,…click the Modify tool and zoom in…on that general area to fine tune it.…I can select that symbol, go to Rotate.…
AuthorPaul F. Aubin
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.
