You can control the visibility of the toolbars and turn the toolbar text labels on or off within the Window Toolbar menu. You can use the toolbar grips to resize and move each toolbar. Notice the bar beneath the toolbars contains design options used to draw the structural wall. Navigating the Revit Structure User Interface 5 The Options Bar is context-sensitive and varies depending on the tool or selected component. Notice the design options available on the Options Bar are now applicable to beams.

On the left side of the Options Bar, notice a beam type is specified. Select the drop-down list to view the list of beams. The Type Selector is a context-sensitive drop-down list.

If you select the Beam tool, the Type Selector displays a list of beams available within the project. The list of components in the Type Selector is identical to the components listed in the Families branch of the Project Browser under the respective category. You use the Type Selector in 2 ways.

First, you can select a component type before you add it to the building model. For example, if you intend to add a beam, the beam type active in the Type Selector is the beam type that is added when you insert it into the building model. You can also use the Type Selector to change a component type after it has been added to the building model. Within the drawing area, you can select any component and then change the type using the Type Selector.

The Show Design Bars dialog box is displayed. There are 9 tabs in the Design Bar, containing buttons grouped by function. You can control which tabs display by selecting them in the Show Design Bars dialog box. Each tab contains frequently used commands that are also available from the Menu Bar. Basics tabincludes commands for creating most basic structural model components View tabcommands for creating different views in the project Architectural tabcommands for adding architectural components to your project Drafting tabcommands for both adding annotation symbols and creating the sheet details for the project construction documents Rendering tabcommands for creating rendered 3D images Site tabcommands for adding site components and producing site plans Massing tabcommands for executing conceptual massing commands Modelling taball the commands to create structural model elements Construction tabincludes commands for creating construction industry information To access the commands within a tab, click the tab, and the respective commands are displayed on the Design Bar.

TIP You can turn the visibility of each tab on and off by right-clicking on the Design Bar and selecting the tab from the context menu. In the Project Browser, select Views all.

You can use the Project Browser to quickly manage the views, schedules, sheets, reports, families, and groups of your current project. You can right-click in the browser to add, delete, and rename views, families, and groups. The browser is conveniently organized by view type structural plans, elevations, 3D , family category beams, columns, walls , and group name. To open a view, double-click the name. You can also drag and drop from the browser into the drawing area, making it easy to add a family or group to the project or add a view to a sheet.

The browser is also dockable, so you can position it wherever you want by dragging the Project Browser title bar to a new location. After you create a browser organization scheme, you can instantly change the sorting within the Project Browser by selecting the scheme in the Type Selector.

The cursor is displayed as a pencil. Do not click. In the bottom left corner of the window, notice the Status Bar provides information regarding what you should do next. In this case, it tells you to "Click to enter wall start point. You can turn the Status Bar visibility on or off from the Window menu. The Status Bar also provides information, in conjunction with tooltips, regarding selected components within a view. When you place the cursor over a component, it highlights and the status bar displays the component name.

Navigating the Revit Structure User Interface 9 TIP When attempting to select a specific component in a crowded or detailed view, use the Tab key to alternate between nearby components.

The elevation symbol consists of two parts, the main symbol and the elevation directional arrows. Make sure you place the cursor over the arrow portion of the symbol so that it is highlighted. Help is available online at all times during a Revit Structure session. You can use this tri-pane, HTML help window to search for information and quickly display it to read or print.

There are several tools that help you find information. You can select a topic on the Contents tab, find a keyword on the Index tab, search for all instances of a word or phrase on the Search tab, or save commonly used pages on the Favorites tab.

Context-sensitive help is also available to provide instant help on any menu command. You can access Help in the following ways: Dialogs: Dialog include Help buttons. Click the Help button, and the topic specific to the dialog opens. If there is no Help button displayed, press F1 to get help on that dialog. Windows: From any window, press F1 to get the topic associated with the window. Toolbar: From the Toolbar, click , and then click on a specific menu command or command button for Help.

Be sure to have the Standard toolbar displayed. Tooltips: To see tooltips, rest the cursor over the Toolbar button until the tooltip displays. In the first lesson, you modify the system environment, which is independent of the project settings. In the second lesson, you modify project settings to control the appearance of the components and subcomponents within that project.

Finally, you create an office template, and set it as your default template. System settings are local to each computer and applied to all projects; they are not saved to project or template files. Modifying General System Options In this exercise, you modify the settings that control your local Revit Structure working environment.

These settings control the graphics, selection default options, notification preferences, journal cleanup options, and your username when using worksets. Set graphics settings 1 Open Revit Structure. Notice that the drawing area is black.

When an error occurs, the elements causing the error display using this color. For Tooltip Assistance, select None. Notice that a tooltip is not displayed.

Notice that a tooltip is displayed even though you set Tooltip Assistance to None. This setting controls only the tooltips that display within the drawing area. Setting Options 26 Click File menu Open. Notice that the system settings apply to this project. For Selection Color, select Red. Under Windows Username, enter the name you want to use during worksharing. Your login name displays by default.

Under Journal File Cleanup, select values for When number of journals exceeds and Delete journals older than days. Journal files are deleted automatically after their number exceeds the value you specify. Journal files are text documents that record each step during your Revit Structure sessions.

These files are used primarily in the software support process. Journals can be run in order to detect a problem or recreate lost steps or files. They are saved at the termination of each Revit Structure session. The path may vary depending on your operating system or where you installed Revit Structure. Notice that the drawing area background colors are no longer inverted and that tooltips display when you place the cursor over any building component.

If prompted, do not save the changes. Specifying File Locations In this exercise, you specify your default file locations. These settings control location of important Revit Structure files such as your default project template, and the family template files, the family libraries, as well as the material and rendering libraries.

Set file locations 1 Click Settings menu Options. Notice that there are industry-specific templates that you can set as your default template. TIP To view a template, you can start a new project with that template.

The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Autodesk Revit Architecture

Click File menu New Project, and click Browse to select a template. This path is set automatically during the installation process. These are the family templates that you use to create new families. It is unlikely that you would ever want to modify this path. However, there are some circumstances where you may need to modify the path, such as in a large, centralized, structural firm where customized templates reside on a network drive. Specify library settings and create a new library 9 In the Options dialog, under Libraries, notice the list of library names.

The list is dependent on the options that you selected during installation. Each library path points Revit Structure to a folder of families or training files. You can modify the existing library names and path, and you can create new libraries.

In the following illustration, notice that the libraries display as icons in the left pane. TIP You may want to create a new folder first, and select it as the library path. TIP The library icons display in the order that they are listed in the Options dialog.

Notice that Revit Structure navigates directly to the library path. If you work in a large office, you may want to set up an office library on a network path in order to increase productivity and maintain office standards. Specify rendering settings 23 Click the Rendering tab.

This path specifies the location of the AccuRender texture library. This path is determined during installation. If you want to relocate this path, specify the new location here. Specifying Spelling Options In this exercise, you modify the spelling settings and the custom dictionaries for Revit Structure. Modify spelling settings 1 Click Settings menu Options. The custom dictionary opens in your default text editor.

Notice that there is also a building industry dictionary. Notice that the spell checker allowed sheetmtl-Cu because you added it to the custom dictionary. This resets the spelling settings to their original configuration. Click File menu Save. Click File menu Exit. Modifying Snap Settings In this exercise, you modify snap settings. Snap settings are system settings that are applied to all projects and not saved within a project file.

You can turn snap settings on and off, or use the shortcut keys to force a particular snap method. In this exercise, you modify snap increments, work with snapping turned off, and use shortcut keys to control snapping on an instance basis. Notice that you can modify both length and angular snap increments.

As you zoom in and out within a view, Revit Structure uses the largest increment that represents less than 2 mm in the drawing area. You can add an increment by entering the value with a semicolon after it. Modifying Snap Settings 17 These are shortcut keys that you can use at any time when working on the design.

For example, if you want to snap an object to a wall midpoint, enter SM and only midpoint snaps are recognized until you perform an action. After you click to place the object at the midpoint, snapping reverts to the system default settings.

Notice that the dimension snaps at mm increments. If it does not, zoom out until it does so. This kind of dimension is called a listening dimension; it refers specifically to the dimension that appears while you are in the act of sketching.

The listening dimension reacts to the movement of your cursor and to numerical keyboard entries. TIP To zoom while in the act of sketching, use the wheel button on your mouse. If you do not have a wheel button, you can right-click and select a zoom option from the context menu. While sketching, you can also use the zoom shortcut keys such as ZO to zoom out.

This is the increment that you added previously.

Sketch without snapping 13 While sketching the wall, enter the shortcut key SO to turn snaps off. Notice that when snapping is turned off completely, the listening dimension reflects the exact length of the wall as you move the cursor to the left or right. Do not set the wall end point. Notice that snapping is once again active. When you use shortcut keys to control snapping, the command is only active for one click of the mouse.

Notice that the cursor snaps to various points on the wall. If you move the cursor along the wall, it will snap to the endpoints, the midpoint, and the wall edges. This is the snap shortcut key that restricts all snapping to midpoints. Make sure you also delete the semicolon. Modifying Project Settings In this lesson, you learn how to control the project environment by using the options available on the Settings menu.

Using these options, you modify the appearance of components and their subcomponents within a project. You create and modify materials, annotations, lines, fill patterns, and object styles. Finally, you modify the way the Project Browser organizes the project.

The exercises in this lesson should be done sequentially using the same project file. If you cannot complete the exercises in their entirety, save the project file with a unique name, and use it to complete the exercises. Creating and Applying Materials In this exercise, you create a new material and apply it to a model component.

When you apply a material to a component, it defines the appearance of that component in shaded and rendered views. Well designed materials provide the foundation for photorealistic renderings. Dataset Click File menu Open. In the left pane of the Open dialog, click the Training Files icon.This Module focuses on the tools required in order to do so 5. The browser is also dockable, so you can position it wherever you want by dragging the Project Browser title bar to a new location.

Creating Project Details and Schedules Chapter To open a view, double-click the name. Create Custom View Scales. Notice that the system settings apply to this project.
