You can get only so far when allowing a computer application to place architectural components into a model. At some point, the application needs to be flexible enough to enable users to employ their own sets of drafting and modifying tools, thus providing architects and designers with the freedom to create their own architecture and construction procedures. The Autodesk® Revit® Architecture program does provide the basic modify and edit commands, which are quite common in other drafting applications such as AutoCAD® and Microstation, but Revit does this with a little more flair and some differences in procedure as compared to a 2D drafting application.
In this chapter, you will learn about:
In this chapter, you will learn how to utilize the geometry you have already placed in the model to build an actual working plan. As you manipulate the plan, all of the other views you made in Chapter 3, “Creating Views,” will reflect those changes. You’ll start with the edit commands.
