- [Voiceover] In this movie we'll add ceilings to our model.…Ceilings are a pretty simple object to add,…and that's because there's a really handy…Automatic Ceiling creation tool that we have…that will automatically see the boundary walls…that surround a room and will create a ceiling in there.…But in situations where that's not appropriate,…we can also sketch our ceiling.…So, the first thing I want to do,…when talking about ceilings, is show you…the most common mistake that folks make…when they start to add the ceilings.…So I'm here in a Level 1 Floor Plan,…and I go to Architecture tab,…and click my Ceiling button.…And then I see this handy little Automatic Ceiling tool…over here and I say yeah, that's great.…
And I come over here and I click a point in this room,…and nothing happens.…And there's a warning message that appears down here,…and it's basically saying, you can't see the element…that you just created.…And the reason for that is, we're looking at a floor plan,…and so we're cutting at about 1200 millimeters…
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.
