Description

In this series of lessons, we'll learn to create a site model in Revit by using the massing and site tools. We'll start by importing a 2D CAD file into Revit to be used as a template for our contour lines. We'll explore how to create a topographical surface with varying elevations and even a natural water feature. From there, we'll begin developing the site model by adding such building elements as a property line, a building mass and pad, retaining walls and even trees. And finally, we'll learn to create a cut/fill schedule derived from the existing and new site conditions we'll be creating. Software required: Revit 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi I'm Pier with Digital Tudors an Autodesk authorized publisher. In this series of lessons, you'll learn to create a site model in Revit by using massing and site tools. We'll start by importing a two-dimensional CAD file into Revit that will later be used as a template for our contour lines. We'll explore how to create a topo surface with varying elevations and even a natural water feature. From there, we'll begin developing the site model by adding such building elements as a property line, a building mass and building pad, retaining walls, and even a few trees. And finally, we'll learn to create a cut/fill schedule derived from the existing and new site conditions that we'll be creating. So with this in mind, let's start the next lesson by learning to draw our contour lines and specifying their elevations.
