Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Establishing shared coordinates, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- 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.…The main benefit of doing this is once…you've established the relationship…between two files, it's gonna work in both directions…and it's gonna 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 wanna be able to do is open…up the site file and link in the building…and have it come in the correct location…without my having to repeat all…of the manual move, and rotate, and align steps.…So let's take a look at the process.…

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.
