- [Voiceover] This movie we're gonna look at…view navigation.…View navigation is a critical part of…any graphics software program,…and Revit is certainly no exception.…So I'm going to show you ways that we can…zoom the screen to change the magnification,…pan to slide around or scroll the screen,…and to orbit when we're looking at 3D views.…So I actually have a 3D view open here right now,…we can look at all three of those: zoom, pan, and orbit.…Now the first way that I'm going to show you how to do that…is to just simply use the wheel on your mouse.…Now if your mouse does not have a wheel I would highly…recommend that you get one that does…because it will pay for itself…in the first few minutes of its use.…
To zoom, you simply roll the wheel.…So if I roll the wheel down, it will zoom out…and if I roll the wheel up, it will zoom in,…it's that simple.…Wherever your mouse is,…that will become the center of the zoom.…So notice here that my mouse is nearby…this curb here in the parking lot…and that's what I'm zooming in and out on.…
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.
