Many building projects have multiple levels in a plan. Add levels in Revit Architecture 2015 to change the amount of floors you're working with. This online course explains how to configure each level, the options available to change floor levels and how to add more levels to create a complete building plan.
…Floor levels are one of the primary…organizational and structural constructs in a Revit project.…In this movie we'll explore how to add and manipulate the levels in our project.…Now, levels are one of those datum elements if you recall a few movies back…in an earlier chapter when we were talking…about the different buckets that objects fell in.…Levels and grids, which we're going to look at…in the next movie, these are datum elements,…and a datum element is just an organizational…element that establishes some known location in your project.…And with levels, those known locations are heights above zero.…
So, we're looking at a floor plan right now.…I'm in a project called Levels, and this is actually just…a copy of the project that we created in the last movie.…And this floor plan is established at a particular height.…Now you can't see the height when you're in a floor plan view, and in fact,…you really can't do any manipulation to the…level when you're in a floor plan view.…So what we need to do is use…our elevations over here and open up an elevation.…

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.
