Revit - Stairs And Railings

Video Description

In this Revit Stairs and Railings training course, expert author Tim Dundr takes you beyond the basics of Revit and shows you how to use the tools and features to create stairs and railings. This course is designed for users that already have a working knowledge of Revit.

You will start out by learning the basics of creating stairs, including the tools, types, and properties of stairs. You will then move into learning how to create straight stairs, l-shaped and u-shaped stairs, and add railings to stairs. Tim will teach you how to create a spiral staircase, multi-story stairs, and monolithic stairs. This training video will also teach you about annotating stairs, including how to number treads and risers, modify cut marks, and tag stair components. Finally, you will learn how to create a custom bullnose, create and place railings during stair creation, and create and modify ramps.

By the completion of this computer based training course, you will have a strong understanding of how to create stairs and railings, and be able to apply this knowledge to your own Revit projects. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
