Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a detail callout, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this and the next few movies,…we're going to look at the detailing process in Revit.…Details are an integral part of any architectural…documentation package.…However, one of the challenges of working…in building information modeling…and software like Revit, is there's…this temptation to over-model everything.…In other words, it's theoretically possible…to add items like flashing and fasteners…and bolts and screws directly to your model.…However, typically such items would only show…in large-scale views.…And in smaller-scale views, they'd actually…kind of get in the way.…
So we want to resist the temptation…to model such elements.…There's little payoff in modeling them,…and you often pay a high price…in diminished computer performance.…For such items, we continue to rely…on traditional detail drawings.…This has always been the case…in architectural communication.…Revit offers a full complement of tools…to facilitate the detailing process,…and does so in a way that maximizes…the potential of both the live 3d model…

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 drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
