- [Voiceover] In this movie,…we're going to create a new project…and configure some of its basic settings.…Then, this project will become…the basis for one of the buildings…we'll use throughout the course.…I'm going to use the default metric template…that ships with the United States version of Revit.…You might have different templates available…depending on what country you're in.…If you don't have access to this default metric template…that I'm going to be using here,…I've provided a copy that you can use…with the exercise files instead.…I've created a link to that template right here…called, "Default Metric."…Just to remind you of where that is,…if I go to the application menu,…and I go to options.…
In an earlier movie…we saw that we could do file locations.…I click the plus sign here,…and I added this default metric template.…Point it to the folder where that exists.…I'm going to go ahead and click that link right now.…That's going to create a new empty copy of…that project.…If you don't have access to it…on your recent files screen,…

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.
