All elements in Revit fit into a built-in hierarchy. The purpose of this lesson is to simply expose you to the high-level concepts and give you a better understanding of how elements in the system fit into a larger framework. So if you imagine the hierarchy of Revit being an overall framework and branching off into two main branches, on one branch you would have model elements and on the other branch you would have annotation. And this is sort of the most fundamental split of Revit elements in the system. Model elements represent anything that's real.

So if you can imagine that you can actually put your hand on it and touch it when the building is built, anything like these walls or these windows or these doors or the stairs or the railings - those are model elements. They represent real things that we can actually physically touch. On the other side of the spectrum, we have annotative elements.
