Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Mirroring groups to create a layout, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
Once you have a group in your project, you might want to use that group as the basis…for an overall layout such as our condominium layout here where we might…want to have multiple versions of this same group on a floor plan.…We could insert each group manually, but that would require some manipulations of…rotating and mirroring and movement that would all have to happen independently.…Instead, I'm going to use the Mirror feature in Revit to mirror the instance of…the group that I already have on screen, directly.…And talk about some of the issues that we run into with groups when we do that.…
So, I'm in a file called, Mirror Groups and I've got an instance of the group that…we created in the previous movie and it's attached detail group.…And I'm going to select the model group first and up here on the ribbon, we have…two ways that we can mirror. And I'm going to use this Mirror Pick Axis…option and what that allows me to do, is select an object that I already have in my model.…And use that as the access of reflection for the mirror.…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
