To link a laser scan file in Revit for an existing building project, the architectural designer should use the Point Cloud tool. This tool allows you to import and link point cloud data from laser scans directly into your Revit project.

Once the point cloud data is linked, it can be used as a reference to model the existing building elements accurately based on the scanned geometry.


15. An architectural designer has created a drafting view with detail. The designer wants to use the detail in another project. Which tool should be used?

The correct answer is: Insert 2D Elements from File45.

To use a detail created in a drafting view in another Revit project, the architectural designer should use the "Insert 2D Elements from File" tool. This tool allows you to insert specific 2D elements, such as details, from one Revit file into another.


16. What must be added to a dimension type for the dimension to show both imperial and metric units?

The correct answer is: Alternate Units.

To make a dimension show both imperial and metric units in Revit, you must add an Alternate Units parameter to the dimension type. This allows you to specify a secondary unit system to display alongside the primary unit system.


17. An architectural designer is working on a door schedule. The Width and Height parameters are both added in one schedule column. How is this accomplished?

The correct answer is: Using the Combine Parameters tool.

To combine the Width and Height parameters into one schedule column, the architectural designer should use the Combine Parameters tool in Revit. 


18. An architectural designer needs to create a repeating detail type for a brick. What should be created first for the brick?

The correct answer is: Detail Component Type1.

To create a repeating detail type for a brick, the architectural designer should first create a detail component type. This involves creating a detail family using the family editor and then duplicating and modifying the detail family to create a repeating detail family.


19. What should be created when the same set of sheets needs to be printed and exported to PDF multiple times?

The correct answer is: Print Set.

When the same set of sheets needs to be printed and exported to PDF multiple times, a print set should be created. A print set is a collection of print jobs that can be managed and controlled together. It allows you to define the print settings, such as the printer, paper size, and orientation, and then apply those settings to multiple print jobs.


20. An architectural designer needs to create a family that can be hosted to a wall or a ceiling. Which template should be used to create the family?

The correct answer is: Generic Model wall based.rft.

To create a family that can be hosted to a wall or a ceiling, the architectural designer should use the Generic Model wall based.rft template. This template is designed for families that need to be hosted to a wall or a ceiling, making it the most suitable choice for the required family.


21. An architectural designer needs to create a new brick material based on an existing brick material. The same material assets need to be used. Which process should be used?

The correct answer is: Right-click the material and select Duplicate Using Shared Assets.

To create a new brick material based on an existing brick material and use the same material assets, the architectural designer should right-click the existing material and select "Duplicate Using Shared Assets." This ensures that the new material inherits the same assets as the original material, including the appearance, physical, and thermal properties.


22. What are the two View options when placing a legend component? (Select two.)

The two View options when placing a legend component are:

  1. Floor Plan

  2. Elevation.

These views provide different perspectives on the building design, allowing you to accurately depict the structure's dimensions, features, and aesthetic appearance.


23. An architectural designer has a linked architectural model and wants to place rooms inside of the link. Revit does not recognize any of the elements as room bounding though. What should be done?

To place rooms inside a linked architectural model in Revit, the architectural designer should:

  1. Enable Room Bounding in the Properties palette for each wall in the link.

This ensures that the walls in the linked model are recognized as room bounding elements, allowing the designer to create rooms within the link.


24. Which view property can be switched between True North and Project North?

The correct answer is: Orientation.

The Orientation property in the View properties can be switched between True North and Project North. This allows you to change the orientation of the view from the project's True North to Project North, which is the default orientation for plan views in Revit.


25. An architectural designer wants to control the view properties of several views using a view template. After assigning the view template to all the views, the View Scale can still be adjusted in the View Control Bar for each view. Why is this happening?

The correct answer is: Include is not selected for the View Scale parameter in the view template4.

When a view template is applied to multiple views, it controls the view properties, including the scale. However, if the "Include" option is not selected for the View Scale parameter in the view template, the View Scale can still be adjusted in the View Control Bar for each view. This allows the designer to override the view template's scale settings and set a different scale for each view.


26. An architectural designer creates an area plan. Some of the automatically generated area boundary lines are incorrect. What should the designer do to get the correct area boundaries?

To get the correct area boundaries in an area plan, the architectural designer should:

  1. Use the Area Boundary tool to create the correct area boundaries.

This involves manually drawing the area boundary lines using the Area Boundary tool from the Home/Area button in the Ribbon. This allows the designer to create accurate boundaries by selecting options for drawing straight lines, rectangles, polygons, circles, arcs, and more.


27. An architectural designer is working on a door family. The material for each geometric form needs to be controlled in the project. How can this be accomplished?

The correct answer is:

Associate each form's Material parameter to a family parameter that is a Material type of parameter1.

To control the material for each geometric form in a door family, the architectural designer should:

  1. Create a new family parameter of type Material.

  2. Associate this new family parameter to the Material parameter of each geometric form in the family.

This allows the material of each form to be controlled at the family level, which can then be overridden in the project environment as needed.


28. The Phase of a view is set to New Construction. The Phase Created parameter for an element is set to Existing and the Phase Demolished parameter is set to New Construction. What is the phase status of the element in the view?

The correct answer is: Existing.

The phase status of the element in the view is determined by the Phase Created and Phase Demolished parameters. Since the Phase Created parameter is set to Existing and the Phase Demolished parameter is set to New Construction, the element is considered Existing in the view with a phase status of New Construction.


29. An architectural designer has an MEP model where air terminals are placed. The designer wants to use the air terminal locations to place generic air terminals in the architectural model. What should the designer do?

The correct answer is: Use Copy/Monitor and specify type mapping for the air terminals.

To place generic air terminals in the architectural model based on the locations of air terminals in the MEP model, the designer should:

  1. Use the Copy/Monitor tool in Revit to copy the air terminals from the MEP model.

  2. Specify type mapping for the air terminals to ensure that the correct types are used in the architectural model.

This process allows the designer to transfer the locations of the air terminals from the MEP model to the architectural model while maintaining the correct types and properties.


30. An architectural designer is working in a 3D view and wants to see only the roof elements. The designer wants to inspect the roof elements without affecting the view properties. Which tool should be used?

The correct answer is: Isolate Category.

To inspect the roof elements without affecting the view properties, the architectural designer should use the Isolate Category tool. This tool allows the designer to isolate specific categories of elements, such as roof elements, without modifying the view properties. The designer can then inspect the roof elements without affecting the overall view.


31. An architectural designer encounters the situation shown in the exhibit. The designer wants to connect the wall to the roof. Which tool should be used to accomplish this?

To connect the wall to the roof, the architectural designer should use the Attach Top/Base tool.

The Attach Top/Base tool allows you to attach the top or base of an element to another element, ensuring that they align properly. In this case, the designer can use this tool to attach the wall to the roof, ensuring that they are properly connected and aligned.


32. An architectural designer needs to create the sloped roof shown in the exhibit. Which tool should be used to slope the roof?

The correct answer is: Slope Arrow.

To create a sloped roof, the architectural designer should use the Slope Arrow tool. This tool allows you to define the slope of the roof by drawing a line that indicates the direction and angle of the slope. The Slope Arrow tool can be used in conjunction with other tools, such as the Rectangle command under curves, to create a sloped roof with a specific shape and orientation.


33. An architectural designer is working on a building model with multiple areas. The designer wants to create furniture plans and dimensioned floor plans with the exact same crop regions. Which feature should the designer use?

The correct answer is: View Range.

To create furniture plans and dimensioned floor plans with the exact same crop regions, the architectural designer should use the View Range feature. This feature allows the designer to control the visible area of the view by setting the top, bottom, and cut plane levels. By adjusting these levels, the designer can ensure that the crop regions are the same for both furniture plans and dimensioned floor plans.


34. An architectural designer is working on resolving warnings in a project. The designer has the element ID of an element associated with a warning. Which tool should be used to select the element?

The correct answer is: Select by ID.

To select an element by its ID in Revit, the architectural designer should use the Select by ID tool. This tool allows the designer to locate and select an element by its unique identifier, which is especially useful when resolving warnings in a project.


35. An architectural designer is creating schedules in a project. Drag and drop each schedule tool to the correct corresponding schedule description.

Here are the correct matches for the schedule tools and their corresponding descriptions:

  1. Schedule/quantities: A schedule for all the wall types in the project

  2. Note Block: A schedule for all the sheets in the project

  3. Sheet list: A schedule for all the symbols placed

  4. Material takeoff: A schedule for all the materials in the walls


36. An architectural designer is working on a project with a linked Revit model. The designer is unable to select the link. What is causing this condition?

The correct answer is: The model is in a closed workset.

If the linked model is in a closed workset, it cannot be selected. This is because the workset is not accessible, and the link is not visible in the view. To resolve this issue, the designer should open the workset or move the link to a different workset that is accessible.


37. An architectural designer is creating a wall schedule. The designer only wants to show walls of the Brick on Metal Stud type. How should this be accomplished?

o show only walls of the Brick on Metal Stud type in a wall schedule, the architectural designer should:

Filter the schedule by wall Type equals Brick on Metal Stud.

By applying a filter to the schedule based on the wall Type parameter, the designer can display only the walls that have a Type of "Brick on Metal Stud". This allows for a targeted view of the desired wall type in the schedule.


38. An architectural designer needs to control the number of horizontal grids for individual curtain walls in a project. How should this be accomplished?

To control the number of horizontal grids for individual curtain walls in a project, the architectural designer should:

In the Type Properties, set the Horizontal Grid Layout to Fixed Number.

This allows the designer to specify the exact number of horizontal grid lines for each curtain wall, ensuring consistency and control over the layout of the curtain walls.


39. An architectural designer is working on a room schedule. The designer has grouped the schedule by Level and added a Footer with Title, count, and totals selected. However, the total Area is not showing. What needs to be done to show the total Area?

To show the total Area in the room schedule, the architectural designer should:

Enable Grand totals in the Schedule Properties dialog3.

This ensures that the total Area is calculated and displayed in the footer of the schedule.


40. An architectural designer is creating parameters for a door family. Drag and drop each Type of Parameter to the correct corresponding description.

Here are the correct matches for the types of parameters and their corresponding descriptions:

  1. The height of the door: Length

  2. A parameter to control the hardware visibility: Yes/No

  3. A field to enter custom notes: Text

  4. The material of the door trim: Material.


41. An architectural designer is working on a project with design options. The designer needs to edit multiple walls but is not sure which design option the walls belong to. Which tool can be used?

To edit multiple walls but not sure which design option they belong to, the architectural designer can use:

Pick to Edit.

This tool allows the designer to select multiple elements, including walls, and then edit them. It is particularly useful when working with design options, as it helps to identify which elements belong to which option.


42. An architectural designer is creating a browser organization scheme. The available options to group by do not work for what the designer wants to do. What should be done to further customize the browser organization?

To further customize the browser organization when the available grouping options are not sufficient, the architectural designer should:

Create a project parameter and assign it to the Views category.

By creating a new project parameter specifically for browser organization and assigning it to the Views category, the designer can then use this parameter to group and sort the views in the desired manner. This allows for a higher level of customization beyond the default grouping options provided by Revit.


43. An architectural designer has created four revisions. The designer wants the revisions to be numbered 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B. How can this be accomplished?

To create revisions numbered 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, the architectural designer should:

Create a custom numbering sequence and set the Numbering for each revision to the custom sequence4.

This involves setting the Numbering column in the Revisions table to Alphanumeric and then defining a custom alphanumeric sequence in the "Customize Numbering Options" dialog. This sequence can include a combination of letters and numbers, such as "1A", "1B", "2A", "2B", etc., to achieve the desired numbering scheme.


44. An architectural designer needs to create a detail using detail components. The detail should be independent of the building model. What type of view should be used?

To create a detail using detail components that is independent of the building model, the architectural designer should use:

Drafting View.

A Drafting View is a type of view in Revit that is used for creating 2D details, such as sections, elevations, and callouts. It is ideal for creating details that are independent of the building model, as it allows the designer to focus on the specific detail without being influenced by the overall model.


45. An architectural designer needs to create the condition shown in the exhibit. The bottom extension of the outer brick layer needs to be adjusted independently of the other layers in the wall. How can this be accomplished?

To adjust the bottom extension of the outer brick layer independently of the other layers in the wall, the architectural designer should:

Edit the wall profile and adjust the sketch lines to account for the proper brick offset.

By editing the wall profile and modifying the sketch lines that define the brick layer, the designer can adjust the bottom extension of the brick layer without affecting the other layers in the wall assembly. This allows for precise control over the brick layer's offset and ensures that it is independent of the other wall components.


46. An architectural designer has created a model group and wants to place additional instances of the group. Which two of the following methods can be used. (Select two.)

To place additional instances of a model group, the architectural designer can use the following two methods:

  1. Activate the Place Model Group tool.

  2. Enter into Edit Group mode and copy the group.

These methods allow the designer to replicate the group and place it at different locations in the model.


47. Based on the drawing area, what view state is currently active?

The correct answer is: Temporary Hide/Isolate.

The drawing area displays views (and sheets and schedules) of the current model. Each time you open a view in a model, the view displays in the drawing area. The view state is currently active when the view is displayed in the drawing area. In this case, the view state is Temporary Hide/Isolate, which means that the view is temporarily hidden or isolated from other elements in the model.


48. The Phase of a view is set to New Construction and the Phase Filter is set to Show Previous + New. What will control the graphic display of Existing elements?

The correct answer is: The Existing settings on the Graphic Overrides tab.

When the Phase Filter is set to "Show Previous and New" and the Phase of the view is set to "New Construction", the graphic display of Existing elements will be controlled by the settings on the Graphic Overrides tab. This tab allows you to override the visibility and display of elements based on their phase, which in this case would be Existing.


49. An architectural designer is creating a room tag family. The designer wants the tag to reference the room Name and Number parameters. How can this be accomplished?

To reference the room Name and Number parameters in a room tag family, the architectural designer should:

Place a label in the family that includes the Name and Number parameters.

This involves creating a label within the family and using the parameters to dynamically insert the room name and number. This ensures that the tag accurately reflects the room's name and number, which can be updated automatically if the parameters change.
