Using the advanced features of Schedules including: calculated values, formulas, and conditional formatting
Learn about using Material Takeoffs, Note Blocks and Key Schedules

Getting Details From Your Model

Using the Linework tool to control specific elements
Leveraging Detail Components to quickly apply and note repetitive elements
Creating Keynotes and a master keynote file to link into your model
Using the Paint and Split Face tools to provide additional material articulation to surfaces and tag these materials
Tagging and scheduling parts of an element using the Parts tool

Sheets and Documentation

Creating Legends to repeat information on multiple pages
Creating and annotating 3D views for inclusion in construction documents
Using Dependent Views and Matchlines to divide up a large building footprint across multiple sheets
