Importing your CAD files into the Revit Architecture software can be a straightforward process, but there are often more ways than one to achieve the same result. You'll learn import tips for Revit Architecture 2015 in this video, which contains useful hints, tricks and details on uncommon buttons you may come across during your work.
…I'd like to wrap up our look at importing…and linking CAD files in Revit projects with just…a handful of tips that you might want to…keep in mind when you're working with CAD files.…So, I'm in a file here called Importing Tips, and I'm in a drafting view…that has an imbedded CAD file in it, you can see that file right here.…So the first thing I want to do is look…at the Query tool in a little bit more detail.…We've discussed this in a previous movie, but if we click…on Query what we haven't discussed yet is, these buttons down here.…Now you notice that there's a Delete button and…a Hide in View button, now that item that I…just selected, this hollow metal frame right here, you can…see is currently on a layer called A Detail Bold.…
And then down here I could either delete that layer or hide it in the view.…Now I'll show you Delete in a minute, let's do Hide in View right now.…I'm going to click that, and you're going to…see that, that element disappears, now it turns…out that was the only element on that…layer, so that's the only element that disappeared.…

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.
