Understanding Revit element hierarchy: Revit Architecture 2015 Essential Training

Revit Architecture 2015 elements fit into a hierarchy. This online video discusses the hierarchy of model elements, representations of real building features and annotation elements -- objects in drawings that are not necessarily real. You will learn that, in Revit element hierarchy in Revit Architecture 2015, the model changes are maintained across views, but annotation elements are view-specific.

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.

Q: Which content in this course is different or not relevant for Revit LT?

A:
 
Chapter 2 – Accessing Revit Options (There are some slight variations in the option dialog in LT. Not all options shown are available in LT.)
 
Chapter 3 – Accessing a multiuser project using worksharing (The worksharing feature is not available in LT.)
 
Chapter 4 – Using modify tools (LT has a slightly different ribbon layout, but most tools covered should work the same. Some buttons will be located in slightly different spots.)
 
Chapter 5 – Establishing shared coordinates (The shared coordinates feature is not available in LT.)
 
Chapter 6 – Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof (The shape editing tools are not available in LT.)
 
Chapter 7 – All movies (Sketch-based stairs are not available in LT. LT only has component-based stairs.)
