Revit Architecture comes with plenty of family components built right into the platform, but it doesn't always have everything you need. By using Autodesk Seek in Revit Architecture 2015, you can gain access to a wide range of components you may need but did not have access to previously. This video will show you how to use Autodesk Seek, which is built into the framework.
…Revit ships with a fairly substantial library…of family components that you can access…quickly and easily through the Load Family tool that we saw in the previous movie.…However, even with this resource, you'll quickly find that…there's items lacking from the out of the box offerings.…You could, of course, build these items yourself, and we have…a chapter devoted to the family editor later in the course.…There are many websites available that offer Revit content as well.…And so in this movie what I'd like to do is look…at the website that's actually hosted by Autodesk and it's called Autodesk Seek.…And in fact it's actually built right here into…the product, so it's very easy to get to.…
So, you can see here I'm in a file called Using…Seek and it's a version of the file we were working…on in the last movie and I've just added one or…two additional components, a few countertops and a hot water heater.…I'm going to go to the Insert tab, and over here…on the right hand side is the Autodesk Seek panel.…And the way this works is you simply click in…

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.
