In this Revit Architecture tutorial I am going to give you an
introduction to the use of the Ramp tool. I’ll
show you how to create a straight ramp with an intermediate
landing. I’ll also show you how to change the cross-sectional
profile of the ramp.
First select the “Architecture” menu (1) and then “Ramp” (2),
which is located on the “Circulation” panel…..
The Ramp tool uses “Sketch Mode”. You can create your Ramp
either by placing down “Runs” or by actually sketching out the
Runs yourself using “Boundary” and “Riser” lines. We are going
to stick with creating Runs semi-automatically. So make sure
that “Run” is selected on the Ribbon menu….
Now before we actually place a Run, let’s take a quick look at
the Properties Palette. Here we can choose the “Type” of Ramp
we want and also tell Revit which (vertical) Levels our ramp
spans between. In this tutorial I am going to create a Ramp
that starts at Level 0 and goes up to Level 1. We are also
going to create a horizontal landing (approximately) halfway
along it’s length…..
So let’s create the first Run. Starting on the lefthand side of
the active view, click to define the start point of the run.
Then move your cursor over to the…
