The approach Revit takes to coordinates, positioning and origin points can be a little baffling if you are coming from AutoCAD. On the surface, it appears that Revit simply does not have a "zero" point, or any way to input precise coordinates. As with many things, appearances are not always what they seem. Revit does indeed have an origin and the ability to input with precision. The trick is that in Revit, coordinates, movements and measurements are always relative to something else. In this class, we will explore the "Revit theory of relativity" (AKA Shared Coordinates). You will learn how to set up Shared Coordinates, link files with Shared Coordinates, and maintain the relationship as the project progresses. If you have let your AutoCAD experience ruin you or have just not been able to get your head around Revit coordinates, this session is here to help! You should have familiarity with Revit essentials.
