Select the outer endpoint at the lower left of the building, as shown. Select the outer endpoint at the upper right of the building. Save the project file. In this exercise, you created a simple toposurface in Revit Architecture by selecting points. You can import these files into your Revit Architecture project where you can automatically generate a terrain using the Toposurfacetool. Adding Exterior Walls In this exercise, you will build upon the foundation walls.
You use the Draw option to create exterior walls that extend to the roof level. Add walls to the entry level: You may want to adjust your zoom: In the Ribbon Architecture tab , click Wall.
In the Type Selector, select Basic Wall: Generic – mm. The Height setting defines how tall the wall is and establishes a relationship between the walls and the 03 Roof Level. After you draw the walls, if you change the roof level height, the height of the walls will also change.
Beginning at the bottom right, trace the interior of the 3 existing retaining walls by selecting endpoints. Finished exterior walls in Revit Add walls to the lower level: Open the 01 Lower Level floor plan. Notice that the foundation walls are now visible at the right of the plan, so that you can trace them. On the Options Bar, for Height, select 03 Roof. Beginning at the left endpoint of the north foundation wall, trace the interior of the foundation walls by selecting endpoints again trace the interior side of the walls: In the Ribbon, click Modify.
Open the To Building 3D view. Adding a Roof In this exercise, you create a roof using the footprint of the exterior walls. You specify an offset as you create the roof so that the roof has an overhang. Open the 03 Roof floor plan. First line of our sloped roof Draw a roof line: Then click Roof by Footprint.
On the Options Bar, verify that Defines slope is selected. This line will be the line that determines the base of the sloped roof. To draw the first roof segment, begin at the bottom left and trace the exterior edge of the south wall by selecting the left wall endpoint and the intersection of the south and far east wall. Offsets to create a overhanging roof Create offset roof lines: In the drawing area, highlight the west wall; when a dashed line is displayed on the exterior of the wall, click to place the roof line.
Repeat for the north and east walls. Select the east roof line, and then select the south roof line. Repeat for the west and south roof lines. In the Ribbon, click Finish Roof. The resulting roof has an odd slope, which you correct in the next step. Modify the roof slope: Select the roof. The properties are shown in the Properties Palette. A sloped roof added to our project Open the To Building 3D view.
Select and modify the crop region as necessary to see the roof. You can do this by clicking the border of the view and then dragging the edges by the blue dots that are displayed: The walls are not attached to the roof; you will attach them in a later exercise. Adding Floors In this exercise, you create floors in the building model. To create floors in Revit Architecture, you must sketch them first in a sketch editor. You use 2 different sketching options, Pick and Draw, to sketch the floors.
Outline of the Lower Level floor Create a floor using the Pick method: Beginning with the north wall and moving counterclockwise, select the interior of the walls. Enter ZR, and zoom in to the top right corner of the model. If the floor lines do not create a closed sketch, the sketch is invalid and you need to clean the lines up.
To be valid, the sketch must be a closed loop with no disconnected or crossing lines. This corner needs to be trimmed! Create a closed sketch: Trim as necessary. First click the crossing line the vertical edge of our floor in this example , then click the line that should be trimmed the horizontal in our example , selecting the portion of each line you want to keep.
Enter ZP to zoom to the previous display. In the Ribbon, click Finish Edit Mode. In the alert dialog, click No. If you clicked Yes, the walls that finish on the lower level would be trimmed to the underside of the floor.
Outline of the Entry Level floor Create a floor using the Draw method: Open the 02 Entry Level floor plan. In the Ribbon Architecture tab , click Floor. Verify that Boundary Line is selected. Click Line. On the Options Bar, verify that Chain is selected.
Beginning at the lower left interior corner, select the lower endpoint of the west wall, and then select the upper endpoint. Move the cursor down to align with the outside of the wall, and click to specify the point. Move the cursor down to align with the inside of the wall, and click. Move the cursor to the left, enter SZ to find the loop endpoint, and select the endpoint to complete the floor sketch.
In the Ribbon, click In the alert dialog, click No. Our project in Shaded mode with the floors added View the floors in 3D: Select the wall as shown. The selected wall is temporarily hidden so that you can see the interior floors. Adding Interior Walls Loading the player In this exercise, you add walls on the lower level and the entry level, and then modify the walls to create rooms in the building.
For Location Line, select Wall Centerline. Clear Chain. Interior walls on the Entry Level Add walls: Zoom in to the west wall, move the cursor along the north wall centerline, enter mm, and press ENTER to specify the wall start point. Move the cursor down, and click on the south wall centerline to complete wall 1. Right-click on the wall, and click Create Similar.
Using the illustration at the right as a guide, place additional walls to create rooms. Interior wall split and trimmed to create corridor Modify walls to create a corridor: In the Ribbon, Modify Tab, click Split Element , and click on wall 1 in the area indicated in the illustration below. Trim the split wall to create a corridor.
First click a horizontal interior wall at one side of the corridor to be , then click the vertical interior wall. Remember to click the part that you want to keep! If you make a mistake, use Ctrl-Z to undo. Repeat for the other side of the corridor.
We had to split the wall first, before we could use trim. Otherwise too much of the wall would have been trimmed. Note that there are other methods as well to achieve the same. This is just one of the options. Interior walls at the Entry Level Draw walls: Right-click on one of the half-tone walls shown in the underlay of the lower level, and click Create Similar. The walls defining the rooms on the lower level and the entry level are complete. Adding Doors In this exercise, you load doors from the Revit Library folders into the project, and then add interior and exterior doors to the model.
In the Ribbon Architecture tab , click Door.
