Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Autodesk Seek, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Revit ships with a fairly substantial library…of family components that you can access…quickly and easily through the Load Family Tool…that we saw in the previous movie.…However, even with this resource…you'll quickly find that there's items…lacking from the out of the box offerings.…You could, of course, build these items yourself,…and we have a chapter devoted to the family editor…later in the course.…There are many websites available…that offer Revit content as well.…So in this movie, what I'd like to do…is look at the website that's actually hosted…by Autodesk, and it's called Autodesk Seek.…In fact, it's built right here into the product,…so it's very easy to get to.…
So you can see here I'm in a file called…Using Seek, and it's a version of the file…we were working on in the last movie,…and I've just added one or two additional components,…a few countertops and a hot water heater.…I'm gonna go to the Insert tab,…and over here on the right hand side…is the Autodesk Seek panel.…The way this works is you simply click…

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 drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
