Building model plans and documents can get out of sync as changes are made to small parts of the whole. An advantage of learning to work in one model with many views in Revit Architecture 2015 is that 3D, floor plan, elevation and schedule live views are updated at the same time as building elements are selected and revised, keeping everything in sync. This training video demonstrates the Revit Architecture workflow when model modifications are made while multiple live views are open.
…So what's so special about Revit anyhow?…Well there are many possible answers to that question.…But in this movie, I'd like to focus on one…of the easiest and most immediate benefits of using the software.…Whether you're an architect, an interior designer or a draftsman, you…spend a lot of your time looking at plans, sections, and elevations.…In Revit, work that you do in plan is…immediately reflected in elevation and section, and vice versa.…In this movie, I'll show you how Revit makes it…easy to keep all your changes coordinated with a first-hand…look at what I think is one of the most…fundamental benefits of building information…modeling, the fully coordinated building model.…
So I have here on screen a filed called Core Concepts.…It's included with the exercise files.…Feel free to open this file and follow along,…or you can open up any file of your choosing.…Now, I have here a 3D view and a floor plan, an elevation, and even a schedule.…And what I'd like to show you first is,…if you select any object in any view, like this…

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.
