Faced Based Model Text - Component

I have added my "face based model text" component that I talked about before, in the content download area on the left.  Enjoy!


I have added a new gadget on the left side of my blog called Content.  I thought it might be handy to post some of my handouts and/or training materials.  I'm starting off with a list of all the standard keyboard shortcuts available in Revit Architecture 2011.  I recommend printing this out and posting it in your cubical or office for quick reference.

It's been a few weeks since my last post.  I have been pretty busy with a really large remodeling project.  Today I would like to briefly talk about keynoting.  Up to this point it has been something we have always been meaning to look into, just never have.  On this remodeling project we decided to look into keynoting for our finish plans.  I closely worked with our interiors department to find out all materials they were planning to use on the project.  I setup all the materials and started applying them to everything.  I then setup all the materials in the keynote text files and then linked them to the materials library.  This allowed us to keynote tag everything in the interior elevations and the floor finish plans.  Later we created a materials schedule to define all the materials.  Long story short, this took a little bit to setup, but proved to be a time saver.  If we saved this much time just on keynoting materials, keynoting by elements can only help to speed things up.  There is tons of information available everywhere about keynoting, too much information for me to even try and list here.  I did find the information available from Matt Dillon at the Autodesk University website and the chapter on keynoting in the "Mastering Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011" book to be the most helpful.  That's all for now.
