Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Enabling shape handles, part of Revit: Construction Modeling Tools.
…So there's many ways we can use parts to communicate our intent.…As we've been seeing in several of the other movies,…we can use parts as a way of taking an…overall model and being more specific about how the parts…and pieces will actually fit together in a construction scenario.…We can also use Parts as a…way of communicating other things about our model.…Like, for example, maybe I want to take…this wall assembly that we see onscreen here…and I want to do a diagram that actually shows how all the layers fit together.…I can use the Parts feature to help me do…that and specifically the shape handles of the Parts feature.…
So in this movie, I'd like to look at…that, and I'm in a file called Shape Handles.…And it's, again, just this simple wall assembly that we see here on screen.…So, of course, the first thing I need to do is select that, and it's…just the out of the box exterior brick on CMU wall and create parts from it.…When I do, you'll see that I get a part from each layer.…And if I select one of these parts, like the brick layer.…
