Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Establishing shared coordinates, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
So by now we've looked at a few different ways that we can link in various files.…We've linked in Revit files. We've linked in CAD files.…In many cases we just chose the default positioning center to center or origin…to origin and then if necessary we move the file.…In this movie, I'd like to talk about a feature called Shared Coordinates.…Shared Coordinates is a feature in Revit where we're able to manage the…positioning of two linked files relative to one another and the main benefit of…doing this is, once you've established the relationship between two files, it's…going to work in both directions and it's going to be maintained throughout the…course of the project.…
So in this case like the file I have here on screen, which is called Shared…Coordinates, I have a linked site file in this file, and what I want to be able…to do is open up the site file and link in the building and have it come in…the correct location without my having to repeat all of the manual move and…rotate and align steps.…
