You can save yourself time by mirroring a group, which means you don't need to tweak and manipulate your design when you want to use it as the design basis elsewhere. This function allows you to easily and quickly create large, complex designs. In this video you'll look at mirroring groups to create a layout for Revit Architecture 2015.
…Once you have a group in your project, you might…want to use that group as the basis for an overall…layout, such as our condominium layout here, where we might want to…have multiple versions of the same group on a floor plan.…We could insert each group manually, but that would require some manipulations…of rotating and mirroring and movement…that would all have to happen independently.…Instead, I'm going to use the mirror feature in Revit…to mirror the instance of the group that I already…have onscreen directly, and talk about some of the issues…that we run into with groups when we do that.…
So, I'm in a file called Mirror Groups, and I've got an instance of…the group that we created in the previous movie and it's attach detail group.…And I'm going to select the model group first.…And up here on the ribbon, we have two ways that we can mirror.…And I'm going to use this Mirror Pick Axis option.…And what that allows me to do is select an object that I already…have in my model and use that as the axis of reflection for the mirror.…

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.
