So now that you've finished this course, you may be looking for some other…resources to help expand your knowledge. I'd like to direct you to the sample…project that comes with the full version of Revit.…Revit LT also has a sample project but it's not this one, so, this sample project…is only available for the full version. And you can get to it by going to by going…to the big R, highlighting Open And clicking sample files right here.…And then, the name of this file is just called the r-a-c basic sample project.…And i have it open here on screen. And, that's included with full version, as…I said. This is a really handy little project.…
It has these little icons here, floating around in the various views called help…links. And I'm going to zoom in on this.…Schedule right here, which has a complete list of all those help links.…And basically the way this works is when you click on one of these little icons,…over here on the properties pallet, it'll have a learning link.…So for example let's look at the very first one here, add levels to a project in…
Note: The techniques shown in this course will work with any version of Revit, but due to backwards compatibility issues, the exercise files for this course will only work with Revit 2014. Unfortunately, we cannot downsave the files. Please see a Revit 2013 course for usable files.

Q: Will Revit 2014 files work in a previous version of Revit? Will the exercise files for this course work in Revit 2013?
A: Revit file formats are not backwards compatible. A new file format is introduced with each new release. Newer versions of Revit can open older version files without issue. However, files will be upgraded to the latest file format during the initial open. Once saved in the current version, there is no way to save them back to a previous version. Therefore, it is important to consider this issue carefully and discuss it with all project team members before beginning a project. For example, it is not possible for the architect to use a newer version of the software than the consulting engineers and vice-versa. All members of the team must collaborate using the same version/file format. This course was authored using Revit 2014. Therefore, its exercise files can be used with any flavor of Revit (Architecture, MEP, Structure, or LT) 2014 and later. Files cannot be opened with versions 2013 and prior.
