Grids provide vertical data points and are primarily used in commercial plans. These grids help you place columns and provide additional reference points for the plans. To add grids in Revit Architecture 2015, watch this online tutorial to learn how to use the Architecture tab to access the Grids menu option, and the configuration options required to put these grids on your project.
…Like levels, grids provide organization and structure to your project.…Where levels were horizontal data elements cutting…through the building at a certain height.…Grids are vertical data elements that are…located at certain locations along the building.…Grids are used, typically to locate where the columns occur in your projects,…and the provide key points of reference for things like views and sheets.…Unlike levels, not all buildings need grids.…For example, most residential projects don't have any need for a column grid.…Most commercial projects on the other hand, do have column grids.…
Therefore, the type of project that you…are creating will dictate your need for grids.…Now, I'm in a project called Grids, and I'm looking at floor…plan level one, and I'm going to go here to the Architecture tab.…And click on the Grid tool.…It's located here on the Datum panel.…When I click the grid tool, there are a few different shapes you can create.…And I'm going to just stick with simple straight lines for this example.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
