Revit Architecture 2015 supports linking multiple files together. The Revit link function is useful for creating plans with multiple buildings or different building focuses, such as electrical versus mechanical. You create Revit links in Revit Architecture 2015 by following this online course, which explains how to use the Insert tab to add a link and how to position this linked file.
…In this view we're going to add a linked Revit file.…There's lot's of scenarios where you might…choose to link one Revit project to another.…Perhaps you are working on a multi-building…project, or maybe you have multiple disciplines where…you have mechanical, and electrical, and structural…and you're all working in the same building.…Whatever the scenario might be, you can take one…Revit project and link it into another Revit project.…And in a similar fashion to the way it worked when…we linked CAD files in a previous movie, if the original…Revit file changes, you can go to Manage Links and select…that file and simply reload it to see the latest changes.…
So I'm in a file here called Office Building, and I'm going to do a really…simple example just to go through the mechanics of how to set up a linked file.…And I'm going to link in a small Out Building.…So I'm going to go to the Insert tab and click the Link Revit button.…That brings up my Exercise Files folder and I'm going to grab this Shed file here.…

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.
