Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using arrays to duplicate objects parametrically, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
In this movie I'd like to look at the Array feature.…The Array feature is a powerful copy command.…What makes it special is it's an actually a parametric array.…Now, what we mean by parametric typically is anything where the original parameters…that were used to create the object remain available for us to manipulate in the future.…And so, if we have a parametric array, then what we're saying is all the…parameters we establish in the array, the multiple copy basically.…Those parameters will remain available and we'll be able to adjust them afterwards,…if the design dictates. So, in this case I'm going to use the…Array feature here in this file called array and I'm working on my stair detail…and I'm going to array this item right here.…
This is a detail component item that represents a single stair tread.…And I actually have three treads here so I want to create an array of those.…So, I've got it selected, I'll click the Array button and let's kind of look at the…options that we have here on the options bar.…

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
