- [Voiceover] In this movie we're going to look at…establishing shared coordinates.…Shared coordinates is a process that you can use…to set up a relationship between two files…that will be maintained, and so that those two files…will know how to link to one another in an ongoing basis.…So it can be really helpful when you have multiple buildings…on a campus, or when the linking situation…is actually complex, and you want to make sure…that you maintain those relationships…as the project progresses.…It can also be really useful when the same building…is inserted more than one time on a project site.…I have a fairly simple example that I wanna illustrate here.…
I've got my office building open,…and the site file is brought in as a linked file,…and it's been positioned, and we talked about that…in the previous movie, and I also have this small little…out building sitting over here, and that's been linked in,…and they're positioned where I want them to be,…but now what I want to do is preserve those locations…and make it possible for the other files to link their file…
AuthorPaul F. Aubin
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.
