    Hi Chad and Aaron,

    The process Chad described worked well. I am able to get a pretty good handle on the amount of lumber needed for the deck and decking. Thank you for that! Aaron, I am extremely...
  2. Noob Issue: Getting My Head Around BIM vs. Modeling

    Hi BD,

    Having only sketched floor plans so far with Revit, I was unaware of the attached column/beam behavior. I really need to experiment with that! It would make life much easier, say, if the...

    Hi Dan,

    Your process is what I kinda ended up doing. I appreciate knowing the process you use to create farming plans. The experience has taught me that the reference plane is your friend in...

    Hi byk3bep,

    Thank you for your reply. And, yes, I neglected to attach an image, which would put my question in context. I know better than that.

    Now for the embarrassing noob question: When...

    Hi Steve,

    The lesson I have learned from these replies is summed up nicely in your reply: "...dimensioning tells a story, which kind of reader are you hoping to please or satisfy?" Upon reading...

    Hi byk3bep,

    "One size does not fit all". Your concept makes very good logical sense. Dimension in a way that make sense for the job/audience at hand.

    Thank you for the guidance!

    Hi BoB,

    Dimensioning to the center line makes good sense for structural items where getting the object in the correct location is critical. I appreciate knowing that different trades may have...
  13. Use of Center Lines in Dimensioning Certain Building Objects

    Hello!

    I have recently been reading through many of the lively forum threads concerning standards for dimensioning. Many moons ago when training as an engineer, the drawing labs I attended focused...

    Hi Steve,

    Just wanted to write that the technique you described in your forum post worked like a champ. I was able to create the necessary views successfully.

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you (!!) for your response. I never considered using the Callout Tool to reference a duplicate view and use the Crop Boundary to focus on the workshop. That is a very...
  16. Noob Question: How to Print Part of a Floor Plan on Same Sheet With Framing Plan

    Howdy!

    This is a case where I think I may be making something harder than it really is!

    I need to print a revised workshop plan. The workshop is attached to the residence. The building...

    JeffH,

    Thank you! I appreciate the link you sent. The video was very helpful. It pointed out some terms and clued me into the location of some parameters with which I was unfamiliar.

    Thank you very much for your reply! I will look into how to set the "Survey Point" and the "Project Point" (maybe analogous to "True North" and "Project North" ???)

  19. Noob Question About Setting Project Base Level

    Howdy!

    This is the first time I have attempted to deal with topology in Revit. I created a toposurface and now I want to set building levels. My levels are correctly aligning with the...

    Hi Aaron,

    Yes, one would need to be discerning about the "flexibility" of the generic object one chooses and if the object has enough parameters to allow it to adequately model a "real world"...

    Hi Andrew,

    After thinking about it a bit, it is really amazing the amount of information that needs to be captured. I have been experimenting with a generic casement window. This may be an...
  22. Hi Aaron, Thank you so much for letting me...

    Hi Aaron,

    Thank you so much for letting me know of your experience. I like the idea of generic objects. Unless one is rending an object, it is really important to know what it *looks* like? Not...

    ...And not to assume that thing lying on the floor is actually a floor, which in this case it was not. I *always* appreciate learning troubleshooting techniques.

    snowyweston,

    Color me red for *embarrassed*. You suggestion to look at the bathroom in elevation provided the clue I needed. The floor I thought was in the bathroom was actually a *ceiling*...
