Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Mirroring groups to create a layout, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- [Voiceover] 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 wanna 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 gonna use the mirror feature in Revit…to mirror the instance of the group that I already have…on screen 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 its attached detail group.…I'm gonna select the model group first…and up here on the ribbon, we have two ways…that we can mirror.…And I'm gonna 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.…

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.
