A group is a useful tool within Revit Architecture that allows you to apply changes to your design on a large scale. For instance, if you make a change or add a new component that needs repetition everywhere, it will replicate it throughout the rest of the project for time efficiency. In this video you'll learn how to create a group in Revit Architecture 2015.
…Sometimes you develop a part of your design…that can be reused elsewhere in the project.…You could simply use Copy and Paste for such…items, but a better choice is to create a group.…A group gives you a powerful way to manage repetitive items.…Once you create a group, if you make a change to…one instance of the group, that change occurs across the entire project.…So to demonstrate that, I'm going to work here…in this file called Create a Group, and…we're going to use our condo layout that we've…been working on for the last several movies.…I'm going to zoom out just a touch here.…And make a window selection around everything that I have onscreen.…
And then, up here on the ribbon, we will…find our Create Group command, or we can type G+P.…A dialog will appear which actually indicates…for me that I'm really creating two groups.…The model geometry such as the walls, doors…and windows will go in the first group.…And I'm going to name that Two Bedroom Unit, and this is a model group.…Model groups contain model geometry.…

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.
