Shared coordinates change the position of two or more linked files in relation to each other. This feature is useful for keeping buildings and plan elements aligned with each other, even if you move an element around on the page. Learn how to establish shared coordinates in Revit Architecture 2015 in this course, which explains how to publish the coordinate system and the benefits of linking coordinates together.
…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, origin to origin.…And then if necessary, we'd move 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 of the manual, move and rotate, and align steps.…

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.
