- [Voiceover] Your Revit project is a complete…virtual building model that can be viewed,…edited and explored three-dimensionally,…two-dimensionally and in various reports and tabular lists.…Each such representation of the project…is referred to in Revit as a view.…Views are listed and accessed…from the project browser palette,…which functions much like a table of contents…for your project.…So similar to how you have a table of contents…telling you where you would locate…various aspects of a book, you can use the project browser…to help you locate the various views within your project.…
So let's start with where the project browser is located,…which by default is over on the left-hand side of the screen…directly below the properties palette.…Now I have the default installation.…Your project browser might be located…somewhere else on the screen…or it may not be displayed at all.…If it's not displayed at all,…you can use the tool on the view tab,…the user interface tool that we looked at…in the previous movie.…At the very top of the project browser,…

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.
