I may have missed something, but with the Room command, revit easily finds boundaries of the room. but How can I easily find

the boundaries to draw a floor? I always trace the edges, around the doors,... manualy.

thanks

I’m not sure what is that you’re trying to achieve. Could you provide some more details or/and screen shots?

ok. I want to draw outline for a Carpet Floor. I should go through all the corners zoom in and out to draw the floor outline.

Is there anything like Bpoly command in Autocad which can automatically find the boundaries of a room and then use that

as the outline of the floor?

Not that I know of, but when in the floor sketch mode, instead of drawing lines, you can choose Pick Walls or Lines option to speed up the process. You still need to however, do some 'manual labor' around the doors.

When doing the sketch, just use the pointing tool and don't zoom in!  You may have to trim some lines.

 

If your space is really crazy, create an automatic ceiling.  Pick the ceiling to edit and copy the sketch to your clipboard.  Now paste the sketch in what you are creating in plan.
