Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding room bounding elements, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
As we saw when adding rooms, rooms require boundaries in order to give us square footage …and perimeter information. …Without the boundaries the room we will report is unbounded. …Many elements in Revit can be Room Bounding by default. …This includes walls and floors and ceilings and columns. …However, where appropriate, and if our design calls for it, we can actually turn off the …Room Bounding feature in certain circumstances. …So in this movie, I'd like to discuss the Room Bounding feature in a little bit more …detail, and show you a few scenarios where you might want to manage which objects are room bounding.…
To get us started, I'm here in a file called Room Bounding, and I am in a level 1 floor …plan. And I am going to zoom over on Bedroom Five, and let's highlight and select the room. …Now remember, you just use a little X there in the middle to help you find the room. …Now notice when it highlights it is wrapping around the closet space over in the right-hand side. …If you look at the Properties palette, under Dimensions, you'll see that this is currently 150 square feet. …
