In this Revit Tutorial I am going to introduce you to both
Model Lines and Model Text. To demonstrate the use of the these
tools, I am going to create some simple court markings for a
Sports Hall and also put some 3D text onto it’s wall.
We are going to start with Model Lines and then move onto Model
Text after. IN the image below you can see my (very) simple
SPorts Hall model. We are firstly going to add some court
markings to the floor using Model Lines…..
First of all select the “Architecture” menu and then select
“Model Line” on the “Model” panel…..
Next let’s divert our attention to the Options Bar. And
specifically the “Placement Plane” drop-down selector. This is
how we tell Revit which plane we wish to draw these 3D Model
Lines on to. Go ahead and select “Pick…” from the drop-down…
This immediately invokes the “Work Plane” dialogue box. You can
see the Current Work plane is set to “Level 0” which (as a
matter of fact) would be fine for drawing our Model Lines onto
the upper surface of the floor element. However, I just want to
take you through manually picking a new Work Plane- that way in
the future you will be able to set it for ANY plane that you
may need. Go ahead and pick the…
