- [Voiceover] In this movie I want to continue…our exploration of room objects and dig a little bit deeper…into the room-bounding property.…Now, we've already seen that walls…are room-bounding by default…and in cases where we don't have any boundary…between the two rooms we want to create,…we can create a room separation line,…which is a room-bounding model line.…But there may be situations where you…actually wanna disable the room-bounding feature.…So lemme show you an example right here.…I'm gonna zoom in on this bedroom area…down here in the lower left hand corner.…Now, at the moment, if I kind of move my mouse…around in here and find the room, right there,…you can see that it's got this little notch taken out of it…for the closet in the right-hand side of the room.…
Now, if I look over at the properties pallet,…it's about 14.8 meters squared.…Now, lets say I wanted to think of the bedroom…as both the bedroom and the closet.…So I wanted to kind of ignore the fact that…that was a separate space in there…and not give it its own room.…

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.
