Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of AutoCAD: Preparing Drawings for Revit Linking.
- [Instructor] All of the exercise files for this course can be downloaded from the website. Now, the whole idea is is that you download the files that you need and you follow along with the videos in each chapter, saving as you go so that as you do each video, you're adding something to either the drawing or the Revit model. You'll notice at the top of the screen right now we're in the 00_introduction.dwg file. That is your AutoCAD file, so all of the AutoCAD files that we're using will be AutoCAD dwg files.
When we're running with Revit later on during the course, we will be using Revit project files, which are rvt, Revit files. They are project files. They are not drawings because they are a 3D model, and the 3D model in Revit will be developed from these drawings that we're preparing from AutoCAD to go into Revit. Whenever you need a particular file, I will mention its name and I will point you towards the title block at the top of the screen. So, for example, for this particular video, as you can see at the top of the screen, we're using the 00_introduction.dwg file.
So, as I said, you can download the files from the website, so go ahead and do that before you start the course. Make sure you've got all the files you need in a known location, and what we can do now is start getting you preparing those AutoCAD drawings to go into Revit architecture.
