Some less known facts about Revit that may be interesting…
Q1. What is the shortest way to input only inches value (e.g. 10”) in Revit?
A. Hit feet symbol 2 times instead of holding shift + inches symbol.
(This happens only in Revit…not in AutoCAD!)
Q2. No Quick Calc like CAD?
A. No but input parameters in commands or Properties can support calculations.
Start with = sign & put the formula with mathematical operators.
Q3. Keyboard Shortcut to close (line sketches, walls etc. )to the starting point?
Q4. Wall types are set with different default Unconnected heights?
||Default Unconnected Height
|Basic Exterior, Generic , Curtain & Stacked Walls
||20’ or 8000mm
|Interior Partition Walls
||10’ or 4000mm
||-12’ or -4000mm Base offset to Level where drawn
||6’ or 2000mm
Q5. The only wall type that is not Room Bounding by default?
Q6. Convert Stacked walls to independent walls ?
