I was updating some legacy VBA code today and had to add some additional logic to a function. When I click the run button, I was faced with this dialog box
A quick check of the code indicates that there IS a closing “NEXT” statement for the “For Each…” loop. When this happens to you, check any “If….” logic constructs within the “For … Next” loop. Chances are you’ll find a missing “End if” statement.
I read about this on techcrunch.
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:
- Right-Click one of your walls and choose “Create Similar” to launch the Wall tool using the correct family.
- Click your Sketch Options pull down and pick “Fillet Arc” and then immediately pick your two walls.
- 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!
Think 3. The workflow is clockwise within the Revit editor, no matter what flavor you are using.
ONE (1) – You begin by selecting your tool from the design bar on the far left of Revit’s screen. Various palettes are available containing context sensitive tools for use.
TWO (2) – Once you’ve selected your tool, move your eyes and your mouse to the top of the Revit screen and select/modify the options available in the options bar. You can drill down using the element properties button if necessary, but most of the general properties are available within the options bar itself as shown below.
THREE (3) – Third and final step is to place the element within the design window using the options selected in the previous step.
Note: Some elements like slabs and roofs, require you to complete your sketch within the drawing window and then complete the sketch by picking on the design bar. This is another reason why the workflow resembles a circle drawn clockwise.
