Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using reference planes, parameters, and constraints, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
In this movie, we're going to look at reference planes, parameters, and constraints.…We're in a file called Pool Table V1. And this was created from the Furniture…Family template. And we're creating our own piece of custom…family content here. If you've been following along, and you…want to continue in your own file, you can do that.…Or you can open the one I've provided here.…Pool Table V1. Now I've got my four windows tiled on…screen and if you want to learn how I did that you can look at the previous movie again.…And I've got the floor plan reference level active and that's where I'm going to start.…
Over here on the Create tab on the Data panel we have a Reference Plain button.…Now there's also Reference Line so make sure you're choosing Reference Plane.…The shortcut is r + p. And what I want to do here is lay out four…Reference Planes in the plan view to kind of describe a rectangular shape.…So the first one, I'm going to do right about here, parallel running horizontally.…You'll see a dimension appear and it's a somewhat random number.…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
