- [Voiceover] Sometimes you spend a lot…of time in visibility graphing style art…making lots of customizations,…different modifications for a certain…kind of floor plan, for example.…Like we talked about in the previous movie,…we had a furniture plan that was different…than a power plan, so we set up each view…exactly the way we want…and then we realized that we want…similar settings in other kinds of floor plans.…Now, I've only got a two-story building here…but maybe I've got a 10-story building…and so I need a furniture plan…and a power plan for all 10 stories.…It's certainly possible for me to go…into each of the other floors…and replicate the same settings…but it would get kind of tedious to do that…and I probably wouldn't enjoy it very much.…
So Revit offers us a feature called,…view templates, and I'd like to look at that tool…here in this movie.…So a view template is just a really simple tool,…it captures all of the settings that are applied…to a particular view, gives it a name…and then you can take that collection of settings…
AuthorPaul F. Aubin
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.
