Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding file formats, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie, I'd like to take a moment to talk about…file formats and backward-compatibility.…It's very important that you understand…that Revit is not backward-compatible.…What I have here onscreen is an article from the help file,…and the most important part of this article…is this sentence right here that says that…Revit is not backward-compatible.…It's very important that you understand that…and what the ramifications of that are to your projects.…So what this means is that if you're working with…other team members using Revit,…everybody needs to be on the same version of Revit.…
It doesn't matter whether they're on Revit Architecture,…Revit MEP, or Revit Structure.…That's not what we mean by the same version.…What we mean by the same version is…2016 or 2015 or 2014.…So if you start a project,…one of the very first conversations you want to have…with the extended project team is,…what version of the software is everybody on,…and then you can make decisions about whether or not…you want to stick with an older version…

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 drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
