Just because we're using Revit, that doesn't mean that we can't deal with AutoCAD anymore. Just the opposite. This video focuses on two methods. The first is to link an architectural AutoCAD floor plan, while the second is to create a drafting view and import a detail that was also created in AutoCAD
- [Narrator] One item that I'm sure…is on the exam is gonna be Copy/Monitor.…This is a very important part of Revit.…So let's just jump in and do it.…Under projects let's start a new…mechanical model using the mechanical template.…Go to the insert tab and let's link Revit.…Notice I'm going a little faster…cause we just kinda covered this.…Select architectural, I want the positioning…to be origin to origin.…Click open.…
Beautiful.…Now we don't know what the architect has for levels,…meaning how high is this building…and how many floor plans do they have.…We have the two default plans,…but that doesn't really mean anything.…What we want to do is we want to…copy and monitor the architectural levels.…That way if the architect moves a level…we'll get a coordination alert…next time we reload their model.…But to do it we need to be in either…a section or an elevation.…
Let's go to our south elevation.…We can open that up in the project browser…or we can zoom in on this elevation marker here,…and just double-click on the little pointer.…
