- [Voiceover] In this movie, I want to talk…about model lines.…Now, model lines is a tool that's available here…on the architecture tab…and we also have another tab here on anotate tab…called detail lines on the anotate tab.…It's currently grayed out at the moment…because I am in a 3D view…but in both cases those objects are lines.…In other words, they are two dimensional shapes…but the difference is that a model line…as its name implies actually is considered part of the model…by Revit so it actually shows in all views.…The detail line by contrast only shows in the view…that you draw it in.…So, you're gonna use them for different purposes.…
A detailed line would be used just to anotate the drawing…or maybe add some detail that you only want to see…in a specific area, but a model line you can actually use…to start representing real things in the model…that you just simply dont want to model in full blown 3D.…Now, the example that I want focus on for this movie…is control joints in a brick wall.…Now, there's plenty of other uses for model lines,…
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.
