Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating groups, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Sometimes you develop a part of your design…that could 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 once instance of the Group…that change occurs across the entire project.…So to demonstrate that I'm gonna work…here in this file called "Create a Group,"…and we're gonna use our condo layout…that we've been working on for the last several movies.…I'm gonna zoom out just a touch here…and make a window selection…around everything that I have on screen,…and then up here on the Ribbon…we will find out Create Group command…or we can type "GP."…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 gonna name that…"2 Bedroom Unit,"…and this is a Model Group.…
Model Groups contain Model geometry.…All of the annotation, like the room tags and the door tags…

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.
