Project settings in Revit Architecture control everything from the project address to the basic dimensions. When you're configuring project sets in Revit Architecture 2015, you can change many options before you start working on your plan. Learn about project settings in this online tutorial, which covers how to change settings through the Revit menu options.
…Many project settings are available in a Revit project.…Even though you begin your project with a template file, there are certainly…some settings that you'll want to double…check, and possibly change with each project.…Some of these include really simple things like the…project location, the address, and maybe the temporary dimension settings.…So in this movie, we're going to create a…new project and configure a few of those settings.…So let's take a look.…Now, we could easily start with the…default template, but I'd actually prefer to start…with one of the templates that gives us a little bit more structure to begin with.…So I'm going to click the New link right here.…
If you watched the earlier movie on…project templates, then you saw that we could…click this Browse button here and there were some other choices for us to use.…And in this case I'm going to use the commercial…default and I'm going to click Open and click OK.…Now this gives me some basic views and a few schedules and some sheets.…And so it's a good starting point for us to build…

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.
