Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with ceilings, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Ceiling elements are similar to floors.…They're a horizontal plane,…set at a certain height above the finished floor,…and can include layers of material in their construction.…You can choose from common types like a 2' x 4' Grid,…or a Drywall Ceiling, or even create your own.…The fastest way to create a Ceiling…is to use the Auto Ceiling option.…This Tool automatically creates a Ceiling…from the walls that enclose the space.…In cases where you don't have walls…or where the Ceiling shape is irregular…you can sketch the Ceiling…using many of the familiar Sketch based Tools.…So I made a file here called Ceilings…and I'm in the Level 1 Floor Plan view.…
And the first thing I want to talk about is a common mistake…that we've all made when we first used Ceilings.…And that is to go to the Architecture tab…and go right to the Ceiling Tool.…I've got my Automatic Ceiling, and click a point…and an error will occur,…and that is because I'm still in a Floor Plan.…Ceilings don't display in a Floor Plan view, naturally.…So I'm going to escape out of the command a couple times,…

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.
