Back to Basics: Revit for MEP Users – Setting Up a Starting View
In this installation of the Back to Basics: Revit for MEP Users series, I am covering how to set up your Starting View in Revit. This process involves using a Sheet for a Starting View, not a Drafting View or Legend View. Prior to watching this video, you will need to have a Title Block inserted into your project as a Family. You can review my blog post on Title Blocks to learn some expert tips for inserting them into your projects.
Watch the video below to see my quick demonstration for setting up your Starting View in Revit.

At first glance, I thought AutoCAD 2019 seemed light on new features. But then I heard about One AutoCAD. Check out my conversation with CADLearning’s Senior Content Manager David Cohn about the new release and what it means for AutoCAD users.
Early Bird registration is now open for the 2016 Orange County BIM Workshops, a training conference hosted by U.S. CAD, a BIM consultant and Autodesk Platinum Partner.
Revit projects involve several moving pieces and information to help us understand the story of our projects. This guide is intended to give you the best practices for creating Symbols, translating existing Symbols, and storing Symbols.
In the last blog I started down the road of successful Record Model (RM) creation, because as we know, Record Models are one of the most powerful demonstrations of Building INFORMATION Modeling. In part two, I wrap up this glorious feat with not one, but TWO amazing tips that cause the most grief with RM’s, hard paths versus relative paths and why are there so many links showing? I have shortened certain steps to keep the blog interesting, if you want the full procedure contact U.S. CAD and we can give you the exact steps towards an incredible deliverable that has been tried and tested.
In the April From AutoCAD to Revit webinar, Aaron demonstrated how users can impressively tell their story with views in a Revit model. He covered creating graphical and non-graphical views, setting the view displays, and modifying the views.
