A place for Revit updates, Revit news, and Revit information.
I am often looking though recent graduates portfolios and I find myself looking at their techniques and design skills, but most importantly I am looking for is their Revit design skills. One of the first things I see that lets me know this person is a novice, is when they use the out of box Autodesk Revit title blocks for their project. The title block looks like this below:
Whether you are presenting yourself professionally or as a student you want to look as put together as possible, and the out of the box Revit Title block does not do this. The first step when you start your first Revit project is to scroll down to one of your sheets, click on the title blocks and then click the Edit Family button on the top of your screen. Then proceed to changing your template to your suiting. Take this a design problem and make your title block your own. After you are done with all of your changes, load your title block back into your project and you are ready to go!
I will be teaching at the University of Colorado this year, and everyone of my students will be doing this exercise.
Here are some things to consider:
· Create a logo for yourself, a company name, and add your contact information.
· Have your client's name, address, and even contact information.
· Include project information such as, Author, Checker, Project Date, and project number.
· Add your webpage link
