Setup New Project
In this lesson, you learn how to start with a new project, setup your project template, project title-block. It is very important to start your template correctly that you won't have any complications during your project. You also will learn, how to create and draw foundations, footings/ foundation walls, and pilasters.
What we need to achieve in this class:
- Create a new project using specified project template
- Modify a project template title-block to reflect project specific information such as project name, address and etc.
- Create foundations
- Create footings/ foundations wall
- Create pilasters
Understanding "View Range" in Revit":
Revit has its own way to show/hide objects in floor plan view range. It could get a challenge to see your desire view, if your View Range is not setup correctly. The main idea of view range in Revit is to tell Revit, at what height, objects need to be cut through (imaginary horizontal cut), how far above the cut line, and how deep below the cut line needs to be shown in the actual floor plan view. The image below shows what Top, Cut Plane, Bottom, and View Depth mean. In architectural floor plans, we usually cut everything at 48" above the finished floor level. This means, if you have any wall cabinets, which are located above 48", you won't be able to see them as hidden lines. To make sure that you see the wall cabinets in your floor plan view, you just set your "Top" between 5'-0" and 7'-0". If you have any difficulties creating your desire view range, post and new thread in the discussion forums.
