Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using constraints, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
So I am going to add a little bit more smarts to some of the dimensions here in my files.…So Revit offers us a few different kinds of constraints that we can work with…and I'd like to show you a few of those here.…So I'm in a file called Constraints and this is just a version of our two…bedroom condo, and I'm going to start in this area down here, just zoom in a…Region on this closet here.…And you can see two small problems, one is that I don't have a whole lot of room…for the doorway right there, so I might want to reduce the size of this closet…slightly, and two, this door in the closet is not centered.…
Now perhaps I am going to consider a few different positions for this door, so…what I can do is build a relationship between the door and the closet.…And it's going to start with a permanent dimension.…Now up until now we've done everything with temporary dimensions, but up here on…my Quick Access Toolbar is the Aligned Dimension tool, the shortcut is D I.…Permanent Dimensions are just as their name implies they remain a permanent part…
