How to make a porch revit

Can you do landscaping in Revit?

Creating an accurate site model requires complex, time-consuming tasks but with Environment for Revit, the designer can easily model landscape and complete the entire design process within the Revit workspace.

Is Revit good for landscape architecture?

We encountered many obstacles, so we began to research the best way to make BIM a reality for landscape architecture. Over the years, Revit® has become the most advanced and most popular BIM software.

How do I create a landscape plan in Revit?

  1. Import information about the existing site or model it.
  2. Acquire coordinates from a designated linked file.
  3. Import models (roads, buildings, etc.)
  4. Analyze and design your project.

What is FOREground in Revit?

The FOREground application is a complete toolset designed to assist with site and landscape modeling and documentation. The toolset incudes tools for: Topography – Create and modify topography more easily. Floors/Slabs – Modify and grade slabs (floors or roofs) with a wide variety of tools.

Do architects use Revit?

Revit is BIM software widely used by architects, engineers, and contractors to create a unified model that all disciplines and trades can use to complete their work. Autodesk Revit was created to support BIM and not to replace BIM.

How much does Revit cost?

What is the price of Revit 2021, 2020, or 2019? The price of an annual Revit subscription is $2,545 and the price of a monthly Revit subscription is $320. Only the newest version of Revit is available for download.

What program do architects use?

  • Rhino 3D. Since its creation in 1998, Rhino 3D has become one of the most popular tools for architectural design.
  • Revit Architecture. The building information modelling (BIM) concept is key in modern architecture.
  • SketchUp.
  • V-Ray.
  • AutoCAD.
  • Maya.
  • ArchiCAD.
  • Grasshopper.

How do you create a site plan in Revit?

  1. Define site settings.
  2. Create the toposurface.
  3. Rotate the project to True North.
  4. Specify property lines.
  5. Add a building pad.
  6. Grade the toposurface.
  7. Create parking lots, roads, and sidewalks.
  8. Add site components.

How do you edit topography in Revit?

Click Modify | Topography tab Surface panel (Edit Surface). Click Edit Surface tab Tools panel (Simplify Surface). Open the site plan view and select the toposurface. Enter a value for surface accuracy, and click OK.

How do you link topography in Revit?

  1. Specify coordinates for the building model.
  2. Open a plan view or a 3D view for the building model.
  3. Click Insert tab Link panel (Link Topography).
  4. In the Link Topography dialog, navigate to the topography.
  5. Select the desired topography, and click Link.

How do you make water in Enscape in Revit?

Enscape will take the settings set in the water material into account and display them accordingly. The easiest way to create water in the Revit Material Editor is to duplicate the existing Revit default Water material. Once that is done then you can change the type of water from a list of presets in the Type dropdown.

How do you make a Lumion fountain?

  1. From the left-hand side of the screen, select the Objects menu.
  2. Click on the Effects button.
  3. Select the thumbnail called Change object to access the Lumion library.
  4. The first tab is the one that contains all the fountains that are available.
  5. Select one of the first 19 fountains and place it in your scene.

Does Lumion have fountains?

Fountains have their distinctive place in Lumion, and there is a tab dedicated to different categories of fountains. We can separate this tab into two parts: standard fountains and fountains produced by a waterspray emitter.

Is Revit harder than AutoCAD?

Conclusion. In conclusion, Revit is harder to use than AutoCAD. Although it offers more features, the learning curve is much steeper. If you are already familiar with AutoCAD, it will be much easier for you to learn Revit.

Is Revit better than SketchUp?

Revit vs Sketchup: the differences Overall, Revit is aimed at more complex projects of whole infrastructures. Sketchup would handle such a project too, but it's much better fitted for interior design thanks to 3D visualization tools.

How hard is it to learn Revit?

If you want to master Revit, you can expect the full process to take up to a year. If you learn the program in phases, you'll find it's not difficult at all. Start with the layout of the software and all of the tools first, which can take about three months.

Is Revit better than AutoCAD?

Managing changes in Revit is much simpler, since modifications are reflected on all existing views. In AutoCAD, design engineers may have to update several files if there is a change. This is a major advantage of Revit, and project documents can be completed faster.

What is difference between BIM and Revit?

What are the differences between BIM and Revit? BIM is the overall process of creating a three-dimensional database in the form of a model of information that pertains to the design of a building. Revit is just one of many software applications under the BIM umbrella that lead to an efficient design of space.

What does Revit stand for?

The ease of making changes inspired the name Revit, a contraction of Revise-Instantly. At the heart of Revit is a parametric change propagation engine that relied on a new technology, context-driven parametrics, that was more scalable than the variational and history-driven parametrics used in mechanical CAD software.

Can I learn architecture on my own?

You can't. Architecture school heavily relies on practical projects (design studios) which you simply can't teach yourself. You can't learn how to design good architecture from a book, it's a long process of learning by doing and feedback. To what end?

How to make a porch revit


Comment by Milford Canonica

hello everybody this is that guys they're here with another Revit 2020 tutorial I hope everybody's enjoying their quarantine and staying away from everybody so anyway let's get into it as you can see I have my Revit model open here where I've been kind of working out for a little bit but I think today I'm going to talk about how to build a porch on the front of it and it looks like I don't have any doors so I haven't really determined front or back between these so let's just go to this this middle building here and I'm going to first a little bit of door I'm just gonna find a generic door and a lot of family in there as you can see it's got all these all these doors sorry I'm a little slow right now I've been working on other projects and little tired let's make oh I feel like I'm feeling good about a glass door today we'll make this a side porch now about a pretty good-sized one I'm gonna just insert that oh we go there and look it space bar because I don't even sketch up too much but so here's my my side of the house I guess then I'm gonna go to architecture tab I'm going to do is I'm going out of floor on the exterior and I'm gonna make a an architecture for why not I don't know see what options we have here we've got all sorts of options for floors here but I think this is gonna be outside I'm probably gonna want to stick with that I'm gonna stick with the generic 12 inch I guess why not then I'm gonna go over here my level 1 plan I'm gonna go back to the middle okay so now I'm gonna draw a little porch here so what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna grab the rectangle tool so you have to open up this properties it'll show up with this modified tab just like any other thing and with all these tools here there's a got a lot of great ones pick walls no my favorite but I'm using the rectangle put the rectangular one I'm just gonna kind of oh that's the Midway that's a good spot the midpoint and I'm just gonna kind of drag it out six feet yeah we want a big horse it's make it eight eight by thirteen nine eight five 14 I'll get some of you the numbers in there thanks to destroy yourself a right thing over eight by fourteen Oh whatever you want I don't care you just want to make sure everything's over it doesn't really ruin bounding and doesn't mean to be structural for this purpose it's on the level one floor plan so I'm gonna check mark and see what that looks like I head back over three D do you plant them there's my little little little tiny porch now with any porch you probably would like a railing around there or something make sure it's officially a porch if you wanted on a second-story or or something but for this instance we're just gonna put a little a little a little railing around there so you haven't used a railing before is right here under circulation in our picture tab and pretty nifty tool here I'm you optogenetics got the path with place on stair oh man we're gonna set the path of railing and I'm gonna go back over the level one floor plan I'm going to just use the line tool and I'm just gonna kind of go in a little bit I don't know you know usually you want to have a certain distance to go in but because I'm feeling kind of tired and ready other bed I'm gonna just kind of just get it as close as I can to I think it's a good amount I didn't start a new life hold on man do that and start over my mistake guys okay railing have it put them on that wall never go all the way out here then forgot I gotta grab it again bring it all the way over here to this side and this is just sketching a path and kind of showing you what its gonna look like okay and then I'm gonna bring it to attach to this wall again okay hit escape and then you kinda want to look at the options here so for these handrails who have about a glass panel bottom fill gar guardrail pipe and also two other options here and I'm going to go switch is a handrail pipe why not and then I'm gonna have the green check mark and still it looks like okay let's put a camera looks fine that view but let's do it all second 3d view pretty cool be good-looking to your porch I've just realized something we need a hole right here to get through if you want to get outside any what are you gonna go this way do that so either sometimes they have a closed-off it's like high up but in this case I think you'd want a little over here to walk through if you wanted to enter through there or anything so you click it again click the railing and then you're going to the path right here and then you can't want to do much here I mean you could but it's a little bit easier to get a level one view and then what I'm gonna do is I'm going to use that the split element or either one of those at work but don't use this foot element tool and I'm going to try to line it up with the door because I feel like that's a good spot and on both sides I'm gonna click right there then I'm willing to take that nun who's going to delete it I'm going to be in check out it tells me oh yeah the railing must be connected blah blah blah so I screwed that up let me get the bit was you can't have a gap in there so which one do is you kind of want to create two different railings so there's my first railing then I'm going to go back to our cutter tab and sketched again I'm just gonna kind of go right there and try to line up the best I can but you'd want to be more precise about this in the future for your own project but this project is just for teaching so I'm gonna eat the checkmark okay that's what I got let's see 3d that looks a little bit better you can kind of walk through there and kind of add a little character to it all right guys that's how you do a little porch I mean you could add a roof in there you do anything but this video is already getting long and I think that's good enough for that right now I will talk to you guys next time and have a good night Thanks


Thanks for your comment Milford Canonica, have a nice day.

what's going on guys balkan architect here and in today's video we're going to be creating a porch inside of revit now it's not going to be a simple porch we're actually going to be kind of jumping into the construction and i'm just going to be showing you how to i'll add all the wooden beams and columns and how to cover all the construction part of a porch so i'm just going to be showing you how to implement all of the native revit tools to create such a construction for kind of a common porch so i think it's going to be an interesting video now before we jump into revit i would just like to take a moment to talk about today's video sponsor and that is hsb cad so hsb cad provides flexible software solutions in the offsite construction industry for both autocad and revit now they have over 30 years of experience and they have helped over 500 companies reach their peak performance by improving their efficiency in terms of design but then also the manufacturing and the on-site construction so today i just want to give you a kind of quick glimpse of how their software operates inside of revit so as you can see here on the screen i'm just going to be showing you how to add structural blocking we have a tool where you can kind of specify the alignment which is kind of like the alignment of revit beams then we have the orientation which is kind of like rotation it's either flat or on the edge then we have of course the side so it's the front back or both we have the lumber item which we can assign and then we have dimensions like the minimum distance between studs and of course the elevation at which it's going to be placed now once we place that on a wall as you can see here we can still select it and then we can still edit that so here in the instance properties you will notice that we have a similar similar parameters to the ones that we had in that dialog and if we just change this from zero to one to two it's going to well change the in this case the alignment then we can change the orientation so it can either be flat as i said or on the edge or the blocking side so if we just change the orientation to become vertical and then if we change it to be on the back as you can see it's just going to switch there so it can be it's an instance parameter so you can change it at any point now also i'm going to just show you how to kind of create a a smaller segment so we've changed the type and the elevation and now if i just select one stud here and another one here it's only going to place that structural blocking in between those two studs and then you can use these little grip points in order to basically change from which stud to which stud it's going to go so as you can see it's a really cool kind of automated tool for well automating your process uh when it comes to creating uh when it comes to creating all the kind of structural framing inside of revit now they have released a new tool set for revit called hsb stick frame and they released it quite recently and it came to the market for the first time and for my audience only so for you guys there is actually an exclusive free access that you can get now i have mentioned this in a few videos back and we've started off with only 35 free trials but we have expanded that twice now so now in total we have 135 free trials so you can sign up now in order to get the free version you have to use the coupon code so the coupon code is as you can see uh hsb cad dash balkan architect you enter the coupon code using the link here below the video in the description or up in the cards above you sign up and then you can get your free exclusive 30-day access as i said it's limited so please be be quick about it and then if you if you get the free trial i suggest you check out the hsbcad youtube channel for more in-depth tutorials on how this new tool set operates and how to use it so i'm just going to leave a link to their youtube channel up in the cards above and also in the description below the video so you can check that out as well okay so now without any further ado let's get started on the porch construction so just give me a second to grow my hair out real quick and let's jump straight into rabbit so this is the house that i'm going to be using as you can see i've placed some siding here on the on the facade and then here we have a porch now the porch at this point it's only outlined by this simple floor and then also we have this simple roof uh it's just a generic roof and a generic floor and that's pretty much all that we have for this porch now and now we're going to be adding the actual construction but usually you just want to outline it somehow in this case i've just used as i said a floor and a roof okay so the first step is to go here to structure and then let's go to structural columns and then for the structural column you just want to check which types you have here and if i just check here let's see do we have some sort of a timber column so if i just check as you can see we don't really have a timber column so let's go to load family and then here i'm just going to be using the us metric library scroll down and then find structural columns open that up and then go here to wood timber column open that up and then here let's just use the 140x140 i think this will work perfectly fine click ok and then let's go into your porch level zoom in a little bit and now we can start placing those columns now one important thing to note here is that if you want to get this kind of exercise file just the the house without the porch and then the final project file with the porch you can find that on my patreon page i'm just going to include the link in the description of the video below and then also in the cards above okay so let's now place this uh you wanna make it a vertical column and then here let's change it from depth to height go up to level one and then here let's choose that timber column that we have let's see where is it okay here we go okay now let's zoom in here and i'm just going to place it like this off to the side a little bit then we can use the align tool al is the shortcut just to align it in place hit the skip a few times there we go perfect then you want to select it like this go to copy grab it here on the edge and then copy it up against the wall just like that select selected hold the ctrl key select the other one and then here i'm just going to use an array i'm going to add the number four so it's going to be four in total i'm going to move to last and then i'm just going to grab it here in the end point now also i'm going to uncheck group and associate because i i don't want that anyways let's just place it here and that's what we have so now we have a total of eight columns and now if we go into the 3d view this is what that looks like now you just want to select those columns all eight of them like that and then you just want to go here to the properties panel change the base level from porch to ground and apply and as you can see it's going to go all the way to the ground that's what we want to see okay now moving forward let's go back to the uh let's go back to th
