Revit® Lesson 2 - Revit® User Interface - Part 1
Welcome to the Revit Users Tutorial Center to learn more about Revit Architecture, Structure, and also MEP. In these series of Revit Tutorials you are going to learn how to use Revit in easy to use and step by step lessons, which will lead you to master Autodesk Revit.
These lessons and tutorials are for all new and experienced Revit users around the world. We love to support all languages in our Revit forum and tutorial center, but the German language is the only language we are supporting natively. We will add more languages in the future. Feel free to use our free Google Translator if you need a translation of our Revit tutorials.
The Revit Users team hopes you enjoy the learning experience to get more creative and practical using Autodesk Revit products.
Revit User Interface
Autodesk has started a new user interface in its products which is called Ribbons. The idea behind the Ribbon was a fluent user interface that can be used and managed much easier than ever before. The original idea came actually from Microsoft when they designed and developed Microsoft Office 2007.
In previous versions of Revit products, Revit users used a system of menus, toolbars, and dialog boxes to get their drawings done. Focusing on your work and less getting attention to find the tools and commands was the main idea for Autodesk Ribbon design.
The traditional menus and toolbars have been replaced by the Ribbon design in Autodesk Revit products. Ribbons have organized all tools, commands, and menus into a set of tabs. Each tab has a set of tools, commands, and icons which are more relevant to each topic. That means you can find every tool in maximum 2 clicks which make working with Revit easier, friendlier, and faster. For example when to want to create a wall in Revit, you just click on Home Tab. In Home Tab, you also can find the most tools what can create 3D objects such as Walls, windows, doors, Columns, Floors, Roofs, Ceiling, and also all tools which help you to organize 3dimensional objects such as Grids, Rooms, Areas, and etc.
