In this video, Shaun Bryant shows where to find the Insert tab in Revit and provides a brief overview of the tab.
- [Instructor] We're starting a new chapter now…where we're going to be looking at linking our CAD file…into our Revit project.…We've got a new Revit project file for you.…It's up there at the top of the screen.…It's 07_OFFICE.rvt, and you can obviously download that…from the website to follow along with the videos.…Now what you'll find in this particular chapter…where we're linking our CAD file to our Revit project,…the workflow and the process is remarkably similar…to the previous chapter, but what I want to do…is just stress that you are linking a CAD file this time,…so when you link it you'll be able to see the changes…the next time you load up the Revit project.…
So if you've got a linked CAD file and somebody…moves a wall in that CAD file, you will actually see…the changes in that CAD file the next time…you load up your Revit project and check out…the linked CAD file in the 3D model.…So let's have a look now at the Insert tab again…in the ribbon in Revit.…We've got 07_OFFICE.rvt open, and you can see there's…
