Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding Revit element hierarchy, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie, I'm gonna expose you to some of the…high level organization and hierarchy that's built in…to the Revit software.…It's important to understand how all of the different…objects and elements in the Revit platform…fit into a broader structure.…So, we'll start at the top level…and we'll kind of work our way down.…So, every element in Revit is part of a Category.…Those Categories are built into the software…and they come from a fixed list.…Beneath those Categories, we can have sub-groupings…and we call those groupings Families,…and then those Families can either be sub-grouped…even further into Types and then finally we have the objects…themselves that we can select in our project center models.…
Now going back to that top level, that Category level,…those Categories break down into certain, sort of,…overall groupings that Revit understands that are…very important to impart certain basic functionality…into the objects.…Now I like to call these groupings buckets…because I don't really have a better word for them,…

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 drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
