Revit Overall Knowledge


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    When you first start Revit Architecture, the program opens to:

    • A.

      A new project

    • B.

      The configuration dialog

    • C.

      The last project you worked on

    • D.

      The Recent files window

    Correct Answer
    D. The Recent files window
    Explanation
    When you first start Revit Architecture, the program opens to the Recent files window. This window displays a list of the most recently accessed projects, allowing users to quickly access their previous work. It provides easy navigation and convenience by eliminating the need to search for and open projects from scratch.

    When you select an element in a Revit model:

    • A.

      You can change the type using the Type Selector.

    • B.

      The Type Selector becomes inactive.

    • C.

      The Type Selector lets you change the element properties.

    • D.

      The Type Selector appears in the Architecture contextual ribbon.

    Correct Answer
    A. You can change the type using the Type Selector.
    Explanation
    When you select an element in a Revit model, you can change the type using the Type Selector. This means that once you have selected an element, you have the ability to choose a different type of that element from the available options in the Type Selector. This allows you to easily modify the characteristics and properties of the selected element to better suit your design needs.

  • 3. 

    When no element is selected, the Properties Palette:

    • A.

      Is grayed out.

    • B.

      Shows the properties of the last element selected.

    • C.

      Shows the properties of the current view.

    • D.

      Is not visible.

    Correct Answer
    C. Shows the properties of the current view.
    Explanation
    When no element is selected, the Properties Palette shows the properties of the current view. This means that the palette displays information related to the view that is currently being shown on the screen. It allows users to access and modify various properties of the view, such as its scale, visibility settings, and other view-specific options. This feature is helpful when users need to make changes to the overall view without selecting any specific element.

    When you make a change to a building object in one view:

    • A.

      That change only appears in that particular view.

    • B.

      The change is propagated i n all views.

    • C.

      You should save the Revit project file.

    • D.

      A new family component is created.

    Correct Answer
    B. The change is propagated i n all views.
    Explanation
    When you make a change to a building object in one view, the change is propagated in all views. This means that any modification made to the object will automatically be reflected in all other views where the object is visible. This ensures consistency and accuracy throughout the project, as any changes made will be updated universally. Saving the Revit project file is a separate action and not directly related to the propagation of changes in views. The creation of a new family component is also unrelated to making changes in views.

    When you work with grids:

    • A.

      You can only create grids when working in a Plan view.

    • B.

      Grids appear in any view that is perpendicular to the grid lines.

    • C.

      You must open the grid type properties if you want to change the grid number.

    • D.

      Grid labels only appear in the view in which the grid was created.

    Correct Answer
    B. Grids appear in any view that is perpendicular to the grid lines.
    Explanation
    When working with grids, they are visible in any view that is perpendicular to the grid lines. This means that grids can be seen in views such as elevations, sections, and 3D views as long as they are perpendicular to the grid lines. The visibility of grids is not limited to just the Plan view.

    To change the type of window or door, you should:

    • A.

      Change the family type.

    • B.

      Change the wall type.

    • C.

      Change the instance properties.

    • D.

      Modify its type properties.

    Correct Answer
    A. Change the family type.
    Explanation
    To change the type of window or door, you should change the family type. This means that you need to select a different pre-defined family of windows or doors from the available options. Each family type will have its own set of properties and characteristics, such as size, style, and materials. By changing the family type, you can easily switch to a different design or style of window or door without having to manually modify individual properties or parameters.

    How do you add a door in a curtain wall?

    • A.

      Use the door tool as you would for any other type of wall.

    • B.

      Change the panel type to a curtain wall door panel.

    • C.

      Doors cannot be added to a curtain wall.

    • D.

      Use the curtain wall door tool.

    Correct Answer
    B. Change the panel type to a curtain wall door panel.
    Explanation
    To add a door in a curtain wall, you need to change the panel type to a curtain wall door panel. This means that instead of using a regular panel, you select a specific panel type that is designed to function as a door within a curtain wall system. By changing the panel type, you can then add a door to the curtain wall and ensure that it is properly integrated into the overall design.

    When creating a Roof by footprint, the Define slopes setting:

    • A.

      Lets you specify the slopes of the roof.

    • B.

      Creates a flat roof.

    • C.

      Causes the roof to slope perpendicular to the slope-defining edge.

    • D.

      Causes the roof to slope parallel to the slope-defining edge

    Correct Answer
    C. Causes the roof to slope perpendicular to the slope-defining edge.
    Explanation
    The Define slopes setting in creating a Roof by footprint allows the user to specify the slopes of the roof. This means that the user can determine the angle and direction of the roof's slope. The setting does not create a flat roof or cause the roof to slope parallel to the slope-defining edge. Instead, it causes the roof to slope perpendicular to the slope-defining edge, meaning that the roof will slope at a right angle to the edge that defines the slope.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When creating a roof by extrusion, the slope of the roof is defined:

    • A.

      In the instance properties dialog for the roof.

    • B.

      In the type properties dialog for the roof.

    • C.

      By the top profile of the roof.

    • D.

      Using the slope arrow tool.

    Correct Answer
    C. By the top profile of the roof.
    Explanation
    The slope of the roof is defined by the top profile of the roof. This means that the angle or pitch of the roof is determined by the shape and incline of the top surface. The top profile can be adjusted to create different slopes, such as a steep or shallow roof. The other options mentioned, such as the instance or type properties dialog or the slope arrow tool, may be used for other aspects of creating the roof but do not directly determine the slope.

    When creating a wall, you can:

    • A.

      Pick lines.

    • B.

      Pick the layer.

    • C.

      Add a door.

    • D.

      Create an extrusion.

    Correct Answer
    A. Pick lines.
    Explanation
    When creating a wall, one of the options available is to pick lines. This means that you can select existing lines or draw new lines to define the shape and dimensions of the wall. By picking lines, you have control over the placement and orientation of the wall, allowing for precise customization in the design process. This option is commonly used in architectural software to create walls accurately according to the desired specifications.
