- [Voiceover] The out-of-the-box library…that ships with Revit, includes lots of components,…in several different categories.…We saw several examples of this in the previous movie.…I've since added a few additional items,…like a hot water heater, a couple counter tops…here in the kitchen and these…closet shelves and poles in the closet.…So feel free to explore those a little bit on your own.…What happens if you need a component that's not…actually available in the out-of-the-box library?…Well there's lots of places online…that you can go to find content.…And the one that's maintained by Autodesk…is actually called Autodesk Seek.…Now we can get to Autodesk Seek directly from the software.…
So to do that we can go to the Insert tab,…and there's a search field available right here.…So if I simply click in the search field…and type in a key word for the kind of item I'm looking for,…it will run a search in Autodesk Seek and…display the results for me in my web browser.…So I'm gonna type in tub, and see if…we can find some bath tubs out on Autodesk Seek.…
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.
