- [Voiceover] In this movie we're gonna talk about groups.…Groups provide a way of taking a collection of geometry…and packaging them up together and giving them a name,…and then we can re-use that instance in several places…throughout our model.…If we make a change to one instance of the group,…that change will propagate to all of the instances,…so it's a very powerful way to manage any repetitive,…or sort of typical elements.…So, I have a version of our two-bedroom condo unit here…to illustrate this purpose,…and you might expect that in a condominium building,…that we might have several instances…of this particular layout,…and so it's a good example for us…to use the group feature.…
Now, to get started the first thing we need to do…is just simply select the objects that we wanna group.…So, I'm gonna make a window selection around…all of the geometry here in this view.…When I do that up on the ribbon,…I will see a create group button,…and the shortcut for that is GP,…so I'll select that, and what will happen is that,…

First, get comfortable with the Revit environment, and learn to set up a project and add the grids, levels, and dimensions that will anchor your design. Then author Paul F. Aubin helps you dive into modeling: adding walls, doors, and windows; creating and mirroring groups; linking to external assets and DWG files; and working with floors, roofs, and ceilings.
Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawings so all the components are clearly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
