Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating Revit links, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie, we're going to add a linked Revit file.…There's lots 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, 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 gonna do a really simple example…just to go through the mechanics of…how to set up a linked file,…I'm gonna link in a small outbuilding.…So, I'm gonna go to the Insert tab,…and click the Link Revit button.…That brings up my Exercise Files folder,…and I'm gonna grab this Shed file here.…Now if you watched the movie on linking CAD files,…

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.
