In this tutorial we will take a look at Revit's "Layer Extensions" in Vertical Compound Walls. As you know, Walls are a System Family in Revit- where you then create as many Types as you wish. A Compound Wall is built up of one or more "Layers"- each having a user-definable Function (ie Structure, Thermal Layer, etc).

When you first start playing with Walls in Revit, you are most likely not aware of just how powerful (and configureable) they actually are. For example, you may assume that every wall simply has a Bottom and Top Constraint and that all layers in the "vertical sandwich" must have the same top and bottom constraints?

A few weeks ago (Wednesday 7 November to be exact) I undertook the Revit Architecture 2013 Certified Professional Examination. I just wanted to share my personal experience of the test, for the benefit of any of you who are contemplating taking it.

 
 
Now I need to start off by saying that I am "not" going to tell you any of the specific questions or answers that are in the test! This is just a general summary of what to expect if you do go ahead and undertake the exam.
   

New Blog: Revit LT

As some of you may know, Autodesk have recently released a "light" version of Revit, aptly called "Revit LT". This product is predominantly aimed at the small Practise, and one-man businesses. Basically, any scenario where worksharing and collaboration are not such a priority.

One Blogger, Tony, has taken to focus his site on this new offering. Simply called "Revit LT", this website takes readers through all the specifics of Revit LT.

Although only in it's infancy, the site is slick and very professional in it's presentation. We wish Tony all the VERY best with his blog and look forward to learing a lot more about Revit LT.

You can find the Revit LT website here

Welcome to this Revit Zone article on Sheet Sets. In this short article we will show you how to create Sheet Sets. Although a relatively simple concept in the context of Revit's power and complexity, Sheet Sets are a really useful productivity tool that will speed up your output with regards printed material of PDF's.
Please note that the concept of Sheet Sets is universal in the world of Revit- ie it is applicable to Revit Architecture,Revit MEP and Revit Structure.
