1.1 Detail Overview

In Revit there are three ways to detail your building

  • Create Details for scratch in Revit The Wrong Way
  • Importing details that have already been drawn The Real Way
  • Creating the detail from the model and embellishing it using 2D detailing tools The Right Way

1.2 Detail Concepts

1.2.1 Creating drafting Views

It isn’t feasible to model every construction detail in 3D Revit

Drafting Views are used for detail drawings or importing details or creating legends, maps, text or any of a variety of things necessary for a construction documentation set.

1.2.2 Importing or linking CAD formats

The data you import or link into your model can be view specific.

1.2.3 Linking v. Importing

1.2.3.1.1 Linking

  • Linking creates a live connection to a file.
  • If you link a file, any changes made in the original file will be apparent in the Revit file.

1.2.3.1.2 Importing

  • Import inserts the data into the project
  • Allows you to explode the file and modify the objects directly in Revit
1.2.4 Linking CAD formats

1.3 Tools and Process

In Revit there are three ways to detail your building

  • Create Details for scratch in Revit The Wrong Way
  • Importing details that have already been drawn The Real Way
  • Creating the detail from the model and embellishing it using 2D detailing tools The Right Way
1.3.1 Detail Tools
1.3.1.1 Detail Groups
  • Collections of 2D Graphics
1.3.1.2 Detail Component
  • Parametric 2D families
  • Created in a Family Editor
1.3.1.3 Regions
  • Filled Region - 2D hatch and solid fill shapes
  • Masking Region - Whiteout
  • Invisible line style
  • Other Line Styles
1.3.1.4 Repeating Detail
  • Takes a Detail Component and arrays it along a straight line
  • Combines Standard Family Detail Component with System Family Repeated Detail
1.3.1.5 Custom line types using repeating details
  • You can use the detail component tool to create custom line type
1.3.1.6 Miscellaneous line tools

1.3.1.6.1 Insulation

  • Symbolic Representation for Batt insulation

1.3.1.6.2 Show Hidden Lines

  • Shows hidden lines for recognizing obscured elements and representing the portion that is hidden with dashed lines.
  • Show hidden lines applies to 2D and 3D elements in all possible combinations
1.3.2 Importing CAD Details
  1. Copy the CAD file to a subdirectory of you project
  2. Project00102\CAD Details
  3. Delete all superfluous data in the CAD file before importing
  4. Annotate the detail in Revit using text

If a CAD drawing has a series of details in it, then:

  • Break the CAD drawing up into multiple drawings
  • W-Block
  • Insert the individual files into Revit
  1. Never Explode the CAD File in Revit
1.3.3 Adding Information to your details
1.3.3.1 Adding detail components
  • Some elements are going to be used in multiple views, make them detail components
  • File> load from library> Load Family
  • You can use Detail Components at every scale
  • What do you use to edit Detail Components?
1.3.3.2 Finishing the Detail
  • Detail Tools
  • Generic Tags – material
  • Think about nesting
  • Naming / Scales / Detail number on sheets

1.4 Long-term Management

1.4.1 Revit – CAD Detail Standardization process overview
  • COPY details from your CAD detail library to BIM Standards\Details\CAD Details – Import or Project\CAD Details folders.
  • Clean out superfluous data – ALL DATA
  • Change CAD layers names to Thin Lines exc.
  • Link Revit – CAD Detail drawing into Revit Details.rft project
  • Annotate the detail in Revit using text and data
1.4.2 Revit Detail.rft
  • This file will always have linked CAD files in it.
  • ONLY linked CAD Files
  • Set the View scale and view name appropriately here
1.4.3 Revit Project Details
  • File>>Insert from File>>Views . . . Revit Detail.rft
  • CAD files were Linked in Revit Detail.rft
  • CAD files are Inserted in the inserted Drafting View
  • Explode – WHAT?
  • See Step 2. Clean out superfluous Data – ALL DATA
1.4.4 Cleaning the CAD drawing
  • Superfluous Data?
  • Layer Translator
  • W-Block to be sure
1.4.5 Side Note
  • Detail Component from CAD Drawings?
  • W-Block, Copy & Past into new Detail Component Family
