Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Linking the architecture, part of Revit: Fire-Alarm Systems Design (2015).
- Let's start from the beginning.…Linking an architectural model is certainly first…in that list.…Unlike AutoCAD MEP, in Revit we are not gonna get very far…until we do this step.…That's because Revit is heavily dependant…on the architectural elements,…so just walls, ceilings, and floors,…the whole star elements.…Without it, we'd be simply floating in space.…The objective of this video…is to find an architectural model.…We'll then go to the Insert tab…and select the Link Revit function.…From there we're gonna link it origin to origin,…pin it, turn room bounding on…and configure the halftone/underlay settings.…
So to get started, let's jump into Revit.…Under Projects, I want to start a new model…using the Electrical Template.…So go ahead and click on Electrical Template.…Now that we're in the Electrical Template,…we can go ahead and bring in our architectural model.…We can do that one of two ways.…We can either go to the Insert tab and click Link Revit…or in the Project browser, we can scroll down to the bottom,…
