Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Revit Areas.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the exercise files, then you can use them to follow along with me throughout this course. I've placed them in a folder here on my desktop, and it contains a collection of Revit files. I'll indicate to you which file to use in each of the videos. If you don't have access to the exercise files, then you're welcome to follow along with your own files. So with that bit of housekeeping out of the way, let's go ahead and get started.
In this course, Paul F. Aubin explores the creation of area plans and areas, and discusses the workflow that enables them. Using these tools, see how you can group and quantify the spaces within a project, and create detailed and accurate calculations of all important areas. The resulting information can be presented graphically onscreen, printed, scheduled, reported, and exported as necessary to satisfy a variety of project stakeholders—those using Revit and those who don't. If you have found it difficult to capture the intricacies of area calculations in your Revit projects—or have only tried to do so using the room elements—then you owe it to yourself to give area elements a try.
