What you'll learn
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.
