Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding reference-based and model-based lines, part of Revit Architecture: Advanced Modeling.
In the Conceptual Massing Environment, forms can be created from either model…lines or reference lines.…The final 3D shape is indistinguishable in either case.…But the features of the resulting forms and the ways in which they can be…manipulated vary in several significant ways.…When a form is created using model lines, we simply call it a model-based form,…and when it's created using reference lines it's referred to as a…reference-based form.…In this movie, we will look at how to create each type of form and explore the…differences and similarities.…So I've a file here called Model Reference, and there are several existing model…and reference lines already here on screen.…
On the top left portion of the screen, these black lines here, those are the…model lines and these purple ones down here in the lower right, those are…the reference lines.…So why don't we start with how they each got there.…When you look over here on your Ribbon, either the Home Ribbon or the Modify…Ribbon, you can see that in the Draw panel, you get exactly the same features.…
