- [Voiceover] We have lots of settings…that control the way that objects are selected…in our Revit models…and while it's a slightly more advanced topic,…we want to discuss it now because…if you don't have these settings…in their default state, then it can make it difficult…to select certain elements as we move forward.…So what I'm gonna do now is discuss…each of the selection toggle settings…that we have available to us, describe them briefly,…and then in future movies, we'll look at them…in more practical applications as appropriate.…I'm in a Level Two Floor Plan here,…and I've kind of created a situation where each…of the Selection Toggles is represented.…
Now, this isn't necessarily always going to be the case.…Now, there's a few elements here…that we haven't talked about yet.…We've got some grid elements over here…which we'll discuss in a future movie.…We've got a Revit Link Model over here…which we'll discuss in a future movie.…So, a Link Model is just another Revit project…that's been brought into the current project,…
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.
