A tool on REVIT that allows the user to line up, arrange, and equally space similar objects in a line or an arc.
Computer Aided Drafting and Design; software that enables a person to complete architectural and technical drawings.
A tool in REVIT that allows the user to take an angled snapshot view of a certain part of a structure and see a 2-D picture of a 3-D area.
Another name for cabinetwork; fine furniture or other woodwork, such as cabinets, chests, shelves, etc.
The 2-D aerial view on REVIT that allows you to view a structure, straight down, at a certain height offset from the floor, and create ceilings and put in light fixtures.

Gypsum Wall Board

The option in the properties box in REVIT that allows the user to edit the phase of a part of the structure or structure as a whole
In REVIT it allows the user to lock an element of a structure in place so that it is not able to move if dragged or a dimension related to it is changed.
Project Base Point
The site point in REVIT, the point of the base that is the refenece point for the whole project; , defines the origin (0,0,0) of the project coordinate system and can be used to position a building on a site and for locating the design elements of a building during construction
A bar where you can select, organize, and view all aspects, drawings, and views of a Revit project
Characteristics used to describe an object that can be edited to fit what a person needs or wants
A tool in REVIT that allows for dashed lines to be drawn, that can be dimensioned, to designate where a wall or other part of a building should be located and the size of them; serve as guidelines

A protective covering that covers or forms the top of a building
Sections views cut through the model; can draw them in plan, section, elevation, and detail views; used to show a portion of a building that couldn't be seen normally
A view of the building seen from above without the section cut that includes landscaping, walks, drives, and property lines; includes the structure plus all the surrounding landscape

An option in REVIT that shows the time of day, the date, and the cardinal direction that the structure is facing
A feature that includes pre-made documents that allow the user to fill-in-the blanks to create new documents, such as calendars, invoices, reports, resumes, etc.; enhances user's efficiency and creativity
Thin lines used to establish the extent of a dimension. The lines begin with a short space from the object and extend to about .125 inches past the last dimension line. They may cross object lines, center lines, hidden lines, and others, but may not cross dimension lines.
A tool in REVIT that trims away excess elements(walls or beams) to create a joined corner
Step-by-step directions or visual representation that explains or shows viewers how to complete a certain task
