In this article we are going to take a look at the Duplicate View tool, within Revit Architecture. Please note that this tool is also found in all other flavours of Revit (ie Revit Structure and Revit MEP) and works in exactly the same manner.

The “Duplicate View” tool can be found on the “View” menu, in the “Create” tab. The interesting thing about the tool is that it contains three different options. These are:-

a) Duplicate View

b) Duplicate with Detailing

c) Duplicate as Dependent

In this article we are going to look at how to create a solid Sweep form, from within the Conceptual Design Environment. If you are totally new to the Conceptual Design Environment (or CDE) within Revit, I suggest that you may wish to read this article first.

Welcome to the fifth part in this series of articles in which we explain how to create your own Door Family using the Family Editor, in Revit Architecture. If you have missed the previous parts in this series, you may wish to start here.

In this article we are going to concentrate on creating a door handle. In doing so, we are going to talk about the concept of “nested components”. We will talk about what they are, how you create them and what the advantages are in using them.

So let’s just dive in to the whole topic of “Nested Components”. The term “Nested Component” is simply used to describe

one Family that is loaded in to another Family. For example, we are about to create a new “door handle” component, that we will then load into our Door family.
