Revit – Tips Tricks and Troubleshooting

(Last Updated On: April 14, 2018)
In this series, we have a little something for every Revit designer—beginners and seasoned users alike! Each video focuses on a specific tip, trick, or troubleshooting technique for the most recent version of Revit. Do you import CAD files and want to achieve consistency? Want to get more from your dimensions? Need to check all of the views in a project and see if the settings are correct? Want to consistently configure crop boxes across the entire project? What about getting all the parameters in your family content in just the right order? These are just some of the topics in store. With a new video every week, you are sure to find something useful to add to your growing arsenal of Revit tools and techniques.
