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. At another hierarchy stage, model and annotation elements belong to categories, family and type.
…In this movie we'll explore some…high-level concepts common to the Revit platform.…All elements in Revit fit into a built-in hierarchy.…The purpose of this movie is simply to…expose you to some of these high-level concepts and…give you a better understanding of how the…elements in the system fit into the larger framework.…So I'm going to start with the broadest grouping.…All of the elements in the software could be grouped…broadly into some major groupings, I like to call them buckets.…So if you thought of model elements as one big bucket.…
And then we also have view elements, datum elements, and annotation elements.…What I'm going to focus on mainly in…this movie is model elements and annotation elements.…The model elements are anything that represent an actual thing.…Something that's real in the building when the building is built.…So if you can walk up to something and put…your hand down and touch it, it's a model element.…And the annotation elements are things…that aren't real, things that describe objects…

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.
