Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Establishing shared coordinates, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
So, by now, we've looked at a few different ways that we can link in various files.…We've linked in Revit files, we've linked in CAD files.…In many cases, we just chose the default positioning, center to center or origin to…origin, and then if necessary, we moved the file.…In this movie, I'd like to talk about a feature called Shared Coordinates.…Shared Coordinates is a feature in Revit where we're able to manage the positioning…of two linked files relative to one another.…And the main benefit of doing this is, once you've established the relationship…between two files, it's going to work in both directions and it's going to be…maintained throughout the course of the project.…
So, in this case like the file I have here on screen, which is called Shared…Coordinates, I have a linked site file in this file.…And what I want to be able to do is open up the site file and link in the building,…and have it come in, in the correct location without my having to repeat all…the manual move and rotate, and align steps.…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
