This video will focus on dealing with the architects levels. Essentially when we link a model into ours, we need to know how many floors we have, what height they are at, and what they are named. Luckily Revit has a system that allows us to copy the architects levels, and monitor them. So when the architect decides to move a level, Revit will tell us!
