- [Narrator] There's lots of ways to build your model…with precision, when working in Revit.…And one of the easiest ways is to rely on snapping behavior.…There's two kinds of snapping behavior, in particular,…that I want to highlight for you here.…One is increment snapping behavior…and the other is object snaps.…So, let's take a look.…Now, what I'm going to do is start with…the increment snapping behavior, which is actually…tied to the level of zoom within the particular view.…So I'm going to type Z + O, the keyboard shortcut for zoom out,…two times and just sort of back up a little bit farther…in this particular view.…And then I'll do W + A to run the wall command.…
Now, you can also click the Wall button…on the Architecture tab instead.…Now, I'm going to use walls to demonstrate…this snapping behavior, but snapping behavior works…for any kind of element in Revit, not just walls.…It's just walls will be a convenient way to illustrate it.…So I'm going to click a random point right here on screen…and that'll start at zero.…
