Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding Revit element hierarchy, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
In this movie, we'll explore some high level concepts common to the Revit platform.…All elements in Revit fit into a built in hierarchy.…The purpose of this movie is simply to expose you to some of these high level…concepts and give you a better understanding of how the elements in the…system fit into the larger frame work. So I want to start with the broadest grouping.…All of the elements in the software could be grouped broadly into some major…groupings, I like to call them buckets. So, if you thought of model elements as…one big bucket, and then we also have view elements, datum elements, and annotation elements.…
What I'm going to focus on mainly in this movie is model elements and annotation elements.…The model elements are anything that represent an actual thing.…Something that's real in the building when the building is built.…So if you can walk up to something and put your hand out and touch it, it's a model element.…And the annotation elements are things that aren't real, things that describe…

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
