- [Voiceover] Much of what you do…in the Revit environment is context sensitive.…What I mean by that is when you're manipulating…certain objects or when you're executing certain commands,…the interface will actually change to reflect the context…of the command or the object that you're manipulating.…The two places where you're gonna see this happen…most frequently is on the ribbon…and on the options bar.…So let's talk about those two critical…interface elements here in this movie.…So let's start with context ribbons that will…appear when you select objects.…So I'm gonna go to the modify tab here first,…and I wanna show you what the default…modify tab looks like.…
So this is the default modify tab…when there's no command active…and when there are no objects selected.…So we have our properties panel,…our clipboard panel, geometry, all the way…over to measure and create on the far right side.…If I come into my model here and I select…an object like this roof here,…notice that the left hand side of the modified tab…

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.
