Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using arrays to parametrically duplicate objects, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie I'd like to look at the Array feature.…The Array feature is a powerful copy command.…What makes it special is it's actually…a parametric array.…What we mean by parametric typically is…anything where the original parameters…that were used to create the object…remain available for us to manipulate in the future.…So if we have a parametric array,…then what we're saying is, all the parameters…we establish in the array, the multiple copy, basically,…those parameters will remain available…and we'll be able to adjust them afterwards…if the design dictates.…
In this case I'm going to use the Array feature here…in this file called "Array" and I'm working…on my stair detail and I'm going…to array this item right here.…This is a detail component item…that represents a single stair tread.…I actually have three treads here,…so I want to create an array of those.…I've got it selected, I'll click the Array button.…Let's kind of look at the options that we have here…on the Options bar.…The first thing you'll notice is…

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.
