- [Voiceover] If you spend a lot of time working in Revit,…then you will no doubt discover…that screen real estate often becomes a premium.…So, there's a few different ways…that you can manage your interface…to adjust it to your liking,…and one of the things that we can do…is adjust the way the palettes are organized on the screen.…So, this would include…the Properties palette and the Project Browser…that we talked about in the last two movies,…but it would also include other palettes…that you can display as well.…So, if we look over here…at the left hand side of the screen,…I have my Properties palette above my Project Browser…in the default configuration.…
This is how it would install out of the box,…but with either of these,…you can actually come over here to the title bar;…click and hold down your mouse,…and tear it away…from the docked location on the screen.…Now, you'll see this big gray border…and when I let go,…you'll see that now the Project Browser…is a floating palette, and you can see…that I can easily move that around on-screen.…
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.
