- [Voiceover] In this movie we're gonna talk about…the properties palette.…Now, the properties pallete is one of the…primary interface elements that you use to…manipulate objects both while you're creating them…and then after they're created,…when you wanna make changes to them in your model.…Properties palette by default is located on…the left-hand side of the screen, just below the ribbon.…But it can actually be located in…other parts of the screen as well.…So yours might be in a different location,…which is fine, if that's your preference.…If you don't see the properties palette at all,…then what you're gonna want to do is…come over here to the view tab,…and using the user interface dropdown,…make sure that you put checkmark right here…to display that properties palette.…
So it is actually possible to hide it,…but I wouldn't recommend doing that.…So let's look at ways that the properties palette…will help us while we're working.…The first way that you're gonna interact…with the properties palette is…when you're creating new objects.…
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.
