Revit Tip - Fillet with Radius

New Revit users are constantly tripped up by the ghost of AutoCAD past! It may seem logical to think that the fillet with radius command would be an editing tool in any software package. After all, the default Trim tool in Revit does a Fillet Corner for pete's sake! Rather than delete the wall and draw a new one with the "Radius" option toggled on, try this:




  1. Right-Click one of your walls and choose "Create Similar" to launch the Wall tool using the correct family.

  2. Click your Sketch Options pull down and pick "Fillet Arc" and then immediately pick your two walls.

  3. Now graphically stretch the arc into size.

You could toggle on the Radius option, but why not draw and then modify? It's all about iteration after all!
