Understanding the process can be difficult so I thought I would try and make a tutorial that will make it easier to get started. The first step is to open your Revit software for the first time.
Autodesk Revit, unlike other 3D modeling software such as Sketchup or Blender, does not have the familiar "Triangle" modeling tool. Instead, you will use the "Door" tool to make elements such as windows, doors, and walls connected together. On the other hand, Revit has an automatic tool called alignment that aligns elements so that they match each other. Revit also has many other tools for finding all kinds of elements. The first one is "Find." In the "Find" dialog box, click the "Element Type" setting on the left side, select "All", and click the "Find" button. You will see the side list with the categories that will become expanded. Choose "Revit Sites" to see the list of elements that you can use in your building. I chose "All Cylinder."
The first element that you will find is "Axis." Click on and you will see the Axis tool listed. It is a red perpendicular line that is automatically drawn between two walls, and another two lines are automatically added at the other end. This axis is very useful for aligning elements. You can also use the add lines tool to create new edges.
The next element is the "Roof" element. It is used to create roof circles such as the roofs of the floors. Click on it to expand its size, and select "Subcategory: Structure" or "Floor Type: Structure". You will see several options or "Sets" of elements available to you. Add more elements to make your building. d2c66b5586
