The Array feature within Revit is a handy Copy Command tool. The original parameters used to design a specific item in your building plans are all within this feature. This gives you the ability to use those same measurements in the future, should you need to copy them to another area or otherwise manipulate them. Learn how to utilize the Array feature in this online tutorial.
…In this movie, I'd like to look at the array feature.…The array feature is a powerful copy command.…What makes it special is, it's actually a parametric array.…Now, what we mean by parametric, typically,…is anything where the original parameters that…were used to create the object remain…available for us to manipulate in the future.…And so, if we have a parametric array, then what…we're saying is, all the parameters we established in the array,…the multiple copy basically, those parameters will remain available, and…we'll be able to adjust them afterwards, if the design dictates.…
So, in this case, I'm going to use…the array feature here in this file called array.…And I'm working on my stair detail and I'm going to array this item right there.…This is a detail component item that represents a single stair tread.…And I actually have three treads here.…So, I want to create an array of those.…So, I got it selected, I'll click the Array button.…And let's kind of look at the options here that we have on the options bar.…

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.
