Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Describe the conditions and situations that lead to the desire to use lines
  • Associate Revit features, functions, and workflows with required tasks, replacing lines with information in the models
  • Identify the different line commands in Revit
  • Describe the benefits and drawbacks of using lines instead of components

Description

Description

The use of lines in Autodesk Revit models can sometimes be shortsighted, leading to messy model files and uncoordinated drawings, or worse, missing information when collaborating with teams. However, what if there is a time crunch, and no time to think straight? How can you sort out the immediate task and know what is best to do in these situations? Learn to stop for a moment, breathe, and identify the immediate task and the workflows that are needed. Find out how to appropriately use lines in Revit models and the best practices to follow through with after the immediate task is complete. Understand the reasons for using and not using lines within the context of Building Information Modeling (BIM). Learn how to turn those lines into components instead, taking advantage of associated Revit software functionality, and breaking the desire to use lines in the first place.
