- [Voiceover] In this movie we're going to talk about…adding sheets from placeholder sheets.…So this is just an alternative way of adding sheets…than the one that we looked at in the previous movie.…I'm in a copy of my condominium building here,…and there's no sheets yet in this project.…I'm looking at an empty sheet list as a consequence.…What I want to do here is begin adding sheets,…but I can actually do that directly in the sheet list…instead of doing the right click over here…like we did in the previous movies.…So all we have to do is actually come up here…to this rose panel in the sheet list…and click insert data row.…
Now, that will create the first sheet…and suggesting the name A101.…And if I'm happy with that, I can accept that.…And then I of course can come over here…and begin typing in whatever I want the name…of this sheet to be.…Now, when I insert the next row, it'll just go to A102,…A103, and so on.…Now, I might want to be a little bit strategic about this.…I have three floorplans.…I have a roof.…

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.
