Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Rotating and aligning a Revit link, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie, we're gonna take a look…at the align and rotate commands.…These are two really useful and powerful…modification commands that allow us to reposition…objects based on rotations or their relationships…to other nearby geometry.…So I'm in a file called Align Rotate…and down here in the lower corner,…I have a small office building,…and up here, this odd shape is actually a site plan file…that's linked into the project file here.…Now we're in the Level 1 floor plan,…and we can get a much better look if we change…to the Site Plan view.…
So I'm gonna double click Site Plan,…and now it becomes a little bit more evident…what I'm actually looking at.…Here is my linked site file.…It's got some roads and sidewalks.…It's got a parking lot and a property line.…And if you look right here at the end of this sidewalk,…there's like a little green dot right there,…and I'm gonna zoom in on that,…and that little green dot is actually a small green line.…That's where the front door is of the building.…So I'm gonna use that green line for reference…

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.
