- [Voiceover] Schedules often contain many…simple text-based fields.…Inputting values in such fields can be a tedious affair.…Using key schedules can help.…A key schedule is a schedule that allows us…to create a name style complete with the values…for several different text fields.…You can use this key in your main schedule…and then choosing one of the predefined…key styles from the list,…Revit will input all of the other values…designated by that key.…Now to demonstrate this feature,…I am working in a version of my condominium building…which includes three stories…and all of the condo units and rooms.…
So if I scroll through this list,…you can see that there are several dozen room elements…in this this room finish schedule.…Now on the left-hand columns,…we've got the names and numbers…and we've got some area column on the right,…but in the middle of the schedule everything is blank…and that's really where we need to focus our attention.…So we want to look for a way to fill in the data…in this schedule in as an efficient way as possible.…
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.
