- 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…where we were talking about the…different buckets that objects fell in.…Levels and grids, which we're gonna…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 floorplan is established at a particular height.…Now, you can't see the height 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…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
