- [Voiceover] In this movie, we're gonna add a sequence…of rooms to our commercial building layout.…But we're gonna do it a little bit more systematically…than we did in the previous movie.…You may recall in the previous movie that we added rooms…to our Two Bedroom Condo, and we sort of placed them…randomly both manually clicking room by room and also…we used the Automatic Room Generation command to do it.…And in both cases, we really didn't have a whole lot…of control over the numbering of those rooms, which meant…that we had to go back and actually select the rooms…one at a time and re-number them all, which can get…a little bit time-consuming.…
So, in this movie, I want to show you that if you just…employ a little bit of strategy, you can actually get…a much better result with the numbering of all…of your rooms, and, in the long run, save yourself a little…bit of time and effort.…So, the first thing I want to do to get started is I'm…gonna make a slight visibility graphics modification.…If we look at this plan here, you'll see that there…
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.
