Using Revit 2014

 

1. In the rectangular box, there is a weird condition. There is 4" bump where the diagnoal and vertical wall meet. The diagnoal wall just wants to join the vertical wall, I can't make that 4". I tried using an architectural column, but it wouldn't join the exterior diagnoal wall very wall; meaning the column won't have the same wall property, such as brick facade.

 

2. The doors are not in yet. I'm still desparately trying to figure out parametric door swings and wall opening offset for door jambs. Need help on that, too.

 

3. I suppose I had better just draw 2d lines for bathroom/kitchen fixtures to be demolished?

 

I know I am more concerned about graphic represnetation than building information modeling, but this kind of small residentail renovation project needs quick plan drawings for client meetings. Revit might be overkill for this kind of job, but I am quite excited about the coordination later on: that it will have sections, elevations, details, and schedules that are all connected. (that I don't have to track down door size changes from plans and change door schedule one by one)

 

If there is anything I am doing wrong in the attached file, please help me understand.

1. I don't see what you are referring to for the 4" bump thats not working.  Take a scree capture and mark it up with what you are looking to achieve.

 

2. Door swings can be tricky and you will need to use reference lines for be able to control swing angles along with angle parameters.  You may be able to find a parametric swing door to download from here to get an idea of how things work.

 

3. I wouldn't use lines for fixtures, revit has actual sinks, tubs, etc that you can insert and place as demolished.

 

You will need to spend time with Revit to realize the full potential. There is not a job to small for Revit, it can do everything AutoCAD use to plue SOOOO much more.
