Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Copying and monitoring levels, part of Revit: Fire-Alarm Systems Design (2015).
- Here's where Revit starts separating itself…from AutoCAD MEP.…The ability to link models is no big deal.…We can do that in AutoCAD MEP,…but the ability to specifically copy and monitor items…from that model is a big deal.…For example, once we link an architectural model,…we would love to have the different levels…or elevations that the architect has set for each floor.…In Revit we can do that, but we can go a step further.…We can actually bring those floor levels…into our model.…Not only that, but we can do it in such a way that…if the architect moves or renames a floor level,…we will get a coordination alert telling us something's up.…
From there, we can make necessary adjustments…to our model, so what I'd like to do is jump into Revit.…Under Electrical, we'll look at the project browser.…We see Electrical, Lighting, Floorplans, 1 - Lighting.…What we can do…if we scroll down,…we'll see that we have elevations as well.…East, north, south, west.…We also have datums that we moved out of the way before.…If we wanna go to the south elevation,…
