Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a group, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
Sometimes you develop a part of your design that can be reused elsewhere in the project.…You could simply use copy and paste for such items, but a better choice is to create a group.…A group gives you a powerful way to manage repetitive items.…Once you create a group if you make a change to one instance of the group, that…change occurs across the entire project.…So to demonstrate that I'm going to work here in this file called Create a…Group and we are going to use our condo layout that we've been working on for…the last several movies.…I'm going to zoom out just a touch here and make a window selection around…everything that I have on the screen, and then up here on the ribbon we will find…our Create Group command or we can type GP.…
A dialog will appear which actually indicates for me that I'm really…creating two groups.…The model geometry such as the walls, doors, and windows will go in the first…group and I'm going to name that 2 Bedroom Unit, and this is a model group.…Model groups contain model geometry.…
