Alternative ways to use elements, including using tools such as Curtain Walls and Sweeps in “off label” applications

Site Tools

Learn how to generate Topography and edit to include various materials, building Pads and site elements such as Retaining Walls, Property Lines, Parking, and Railings

Phasing and Design Options

Learn about the ability of Revit to show various Phases of a project and how to display element correctly
Leverage Design Options to quickly work out design scenarios and present them clearly

Modeling for Construction

Using Assemblies to better group related elements into single units that can be tagged, scheduled, and detailed as one
Dividing elements into their Parts to independently schedule, tag, filter, and export them
