Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating Revit links, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
Sometimes your project will be comprised of more than one Revit file.…There's a variety of reasons why you might do this, but different members of the…team might be working in different building files or perhaps they are working…under different disciplines like structural and mechanical.…Whatever the reason might be, we can link two Revit files to one another so that…if changes occur to one of the Revit files we can reload and see those changes…in the file that it's linked into.…So I'm in a file here called Office Building and it's just a simple…office building structure.…I'm just going to link in a small outbuilding.…
I do this by going to be Insert tab and I'm going to click on the Link Revit button.…Now this will bring up the familiar browse window and I can choose any of the…files that I have in here, and I want to pick this file called Shed, just a small…shed building that we're going to bring in here.…And if you followed along in the movies on linking CAD files you'll see that…this dialog is much simpler.…
