- [Narrator] In this video we're going to add columns…to our building layout.…Now there's actually two kinds of columns…that we could choose from.…There's what Revit calls architectural columns…and structural columns.…Now it's actually possible to use one or the other,…depending on your discipline,…but I actually like to use both.…So I tend to think of the structural columns…as the actual load carrying materials,…so the steel or the concrete that's actually…holding up the structure of the building,…and the architectural column as the finished…material that wraps around it.…So the drywall and the studs, or other finish…materials that you might wrap around a structural column.…
So I want to show you both tools in this video,…and I'm going to start with the architectural columns.…So if you look at the drop down on the column button,…you've got structural column as the default.…So to get to architectural column you…choose it off the drop down menu.…Now when I pick that, you're going to see that I…have a single rectangular column family…
