Example text

For example, deleting a roof underlay in a view doesn’t just delete the roof in that view—it deletes it everywhere in the model. You need to think before you delete that wall or ignore that warning message! Be prepared to work in much tighter, collaborative teams. As soon as you enter the BIM multiuser world, you absolutely need to be communicating with your team all the time. The changes that you make in the model will impact the whole model and other people’s work. We think this is a great—perhaps unintended—consequence of moving into a model-based design paradigm.

As you start working in real projects, the number of views and drawings that accumulate will become quite large. Being able to find your views and effectively move between them is critical to support an effective workflow. We’ll look at the various methods of moving between views, best practices, and how to customize the display of these views using the Project Browser. Views A view is a graphical way to look at the database of information you’re creating. Plan, section, schedule table, 3D view—all of these are just different ways to look at and query the same underlying database of information that describes your building.

Although each type can vary in shape and size, the base geometry for each type is derived from the same family. The Difference between Blocks and Families In a typical CAD environment, you might create each door as a block; each of those blocks would be a separate element unrelated to any of the others. So, 20 door sizes would mean 20 floor-plan blocks, 20 section blocks, 20 elevation blocks, and 20 3D blocks if you were going to use them as liberally as we use them in Revit. All of those in Revit are represented with one family that can display itself in 2D and 3D and whose size, material, and visibility can be changed at any time.
