- [Voiceover] Once you have a group of something like…your two bedroom condo, it only takes a little bit…more effort to turn that into an entire floor plan layout.…So, in this movie, we're gonna take the Mirror command…and actually duplicate our group a few times to create…the layout of the overall condominium building.…So, I've got one instance of my group right here, and I'm…gonna select it.…And up on my Modified tab, I have two Mirror commands.…I have the Mirror Pick Axis and the Mirror Draw Axis.…So, let's look at each one.…I'll start with your Pick Axis.…With Mirror Pick Axis, you select an existing object…in the model and use that as the axis of reflection.…
So, in this case, the upper wall here in the floor plan…will do the trick quite nicely.…So, I'll select that wall, and it will create a mirrored…copy of the group up above the first.…And as you can see, it's flipped up in that location.…As you can also see, we're getting a warning down in the…lower right hand corner indicating that we had two walls…

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.
