There's lots of reasons why you might choose to link a Revit project to your…exisitng project. When you create a link to a Revit project…you're embedding an entire Revit projct into your current project.…It will come in as a single object that you can move around and position relative…to the geometry in your existing project. And then, if the owner of that original…Revit linked file makes changes to that file, you can come back later and reload…the link and capture those latest changes to that file.…So, there's lots of times when you might choose to use this procedure and it might…involve collaboration on a project with other disciplines like other engineers and…so forth. Perhaps they're going to work in Revit.…
You're going to work in Revit. And you both link your files together.…If you're doing a multi-building campus project, each building might be a separate…linked file. So there's a lot of scenarios where it…would be appropriate to do your work in multiple Revit projects and then link them…together for coordination. So in this movie, what I'm going to do, is…
