I would like to add some exterior details to enhance the elevations of houses that we are designing. These details include window casings, corner boards, pilaster (flat columns on the wall), water tables, belt lines etc. Banging my head against the wall too long to figure it out on my own. Is there an easy way???

Use the search tool on this forum or others to look for families and tips that may suite your needs . You need to learn the abilities of the sweep and create tools along with the family editor. Do a tutorial on wall sweeps.

When you have a moment, consider checking out my blog and blog archive (at the bottom), I have a few posts dedicated to residential design that came from working with Revit clients over the last 4 years. Tech / Business Blog URL www.taylor-tech.com/danielhughes Residential Design: Revit 2D Sketch Tools Define 3D Curb Appeal for Homeowners http://taylor-tech.com/blogs/getEntryById/52/entry.html There is a PDF and DWF file you can download that I use in my training classes and a Revit Gallery link that you can access Revit Residential, commercial, instutional, etc projects...I think there's more than 20 projects.

none of those links work?  Do you have updated links on that IMAGINiT site?

 

I can't find them.  We're a Residential Based company and it would be very helpful to get those tutorials and guidelines you're talking about.  I would appreciate any insight.  Thanks,Lorne

I hope this might save you a few minutes of headache:

In our office, we always have the best intentions of going somewhere online and getting a detail to use in our models, but most of what I have found never quite works out. I have saved more time (and learned more about modeling) by creating some in-place components. If it is a once-in-a-lifetime sort of component that our office will never use again, I will create the component within the model itself. Using reference planes and a little savvy, we can usually jazz up our models well enough to a make a nice set of drawings that tells the story. If it is a component that we like and commonly specify on projects, it only makes sense to create it in the family editor so that we can have it to add to our office's collection of goodies. It's easy to get carried away and draw too much, so I try to be selective as to what gets modeled, and what doesn't. Overall, my point is, I have had much more luck using components I have made verses using components I have found online. Just my two cents. Best of luck.

i always review any free reference material to get a gauge what being produced and and to what detail. No matter what, it seems i always seem to learn something. i never turn down an opportunity when offerred. The Revit scale seems to be a constantly variable one.

I was merely wanting those links to work, because I'd like a GOOD tutorial to help me get some details created.  That's all.  I wasn't looking for Detail components.  Our details are pretty unique and I understand we'll be making our own.  But I would like a tutorial to help get me started in the detail process.  Does that make sense?

 

Thanks,

Lorne
