Revit file formats are specific to that version of Revit Architecture. The application is not backwards compatible, so the file formats are locked in to a specific software version. Watch this online course to learn file formats in Revit Architecture 2015, and why it's important to have all contributors using the same update version.
…This will be let's take a moment to talk about file formats.…I'm here in Revit and I'm just in an empty project, the project you have…open is not important because what I'm going to…do is just access the help system here.…So, I'm going to click up in the search field at the…top of the help system and I want to type in backward compatible.…I'm going to press enter.…I'm in Windows 8 and it's asking me which browser I want to use.…So I'm going to open this up using Chrome, but you can feel…free to open this using whichever version of your web browser you like.…So this takes me to the Autodesc Revit help.…You can see that the very first article…that displays is this upgrade stand-alone Revit installation.…
And probably the most important part of this article that I…want to point out to you is this phrase right here.…That says that Revit is not backward compatible.…So this is really critically important for you and your project…teams to know about and to discuss before you start any project.…Now it doesn't matter whether the team is…

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.
