So far this chapter of my blog is going well, I’ve had over 270 views of the 1st video since last Sunday which is a record for me. This next video part is based on the structure of the building including the foundations, concrete basement, columns and beams. We'll (like a real construction site) work from the bottom and work up, I’ve split the structure into 2 videos the lower B1 and 01 Level and then the 02 level(2nd video).
In this video we cover;
1. Making a workset Editable 2. Adding type marks to columns and beams 3. Placing walls 4. Modeling floors 5. Modeling foundations 6. Placing columns 7. Adjusting top and bottom offsets of walls and columns 8. Placing beams 9. Adjust the beam start and end values 10. Making wall profiles and attaching them to wall sweep and placing them 11. Joining walls and floors, and also Walls and wall sweeps 12. Changing the view range of a floor plan view to unlimited.
Its here the start of the videos for 'Revit Project the Experiment', my experiment is to show you how to model and annotate a project in 12 (half hour) videos or so, some of the work I'll do in the background this is to avoid showing you repetition of tasks and reduce video length but I'll explain how to do it all. This video contains the setup of
Just one more week before i start the videos but here are the first 9 categories listed to give you an idea of what is involved. Note; I'll show how to set each of theses in the first video which will be the file setup video, I'll probably leave the list of the remaining categories until i get to the stage of placing them in video 5-8 or something like that. I've given both metric and imperial measurement so everyone can follow along. Sorry but i had to split the wall types list image into 2 which makes them different sizes but they are readable.

Review these for now and next week when we start you'll have a better understanding of what is going on and will be able to apply the same setting to your own file and follow the tutorials to the end.
A cut section of the projects we'll be doing over the next 2 months
Over the next 2 months i plan to record myself building a fully working revit project that will be a total of 6 to 7hr of video watching broken down into 12 half hour videos or so.
First we need to prep our template file with revit components, system families, levels, grids etc. so leading up to the first video in a couple of weeks time, I'll itemise all the components in each category and give you time to setup the same setting. The following categories will be highlighted in the next 2 weeks or so.
I'm an Architectural Technician with a passion for detailing (including 3D detailing) and my chosen platform is revit. This blog will discuss methods of producing detailed 3D Models and the challenges you face. I'll approach 1 detail at a time before moving on as a massive big picture can sometimes be hard to decipher. Even though construction methods may vary in different regions the modelling method can generally be maintained. Feel free to contact me at revitdetail at gmail dot com.
