Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding levels, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
Floor levels are one of the primary organizational and structural constructs in Revit project.…In this movie we'll explore how to add and manipulate the levels in our project.…Now levels are one of those datum elements, if you recall a few movies back in…an earlier chapter where we were talking about the different buckets that objects fell in.…Levels and grids, which we're going to look at in the next movie, these are datum elements.…And a datum element is just an organizational element that establishes…some known location in your project, and with levels those known locations…are heights above zero.…
So we're looking at a floor plan right now, I'm in a project called Levels and…this is actually just a copy of the project that we created in the last movie.…And this floor plan is established at a particular height.…Now you can't see the height when you're in a Floor Plan view, and in fact you…really can't do any manipulation to the level when you're in a Floor Plan view.…So what we need to do is use our Elevations over here and open up an Elevation.…
