Back to Basics: Revit for MEP User – Copying Levels & Grids with the Copy/Monitor Tool
In this next part of the Back to Basics: Revit for MEP Users series, I’m covering the Copy/Monitor tool. This tool is very useful in copying levels and grids from the architectural link that you set up previously.
Watch the short video below to see me walk through the steps of pulling in an elevation, aligning the levels, and creating floor plans off the levels.

Have you seen the new CADLearning platform first hand yet? We got a First Look at the New CADLearning last week, and the new platform has many enhancements to help users and teams be more productive and ultimately help their company be more successful.
You may have heard that with the 2017 release of Revit, Autodesk replaced the Revit vertical offerings (Architecture, MEP and Structure) with Revit (sometimes called “one-box”).

In their “Revit 2018 New Features” Skype chat, CADLearning’s Building Content Manager Jason Boehning, and U.S. CAD’s Technical Specialist Jack Trexler, shared their favorite new updates to the Revit 2018 release.
If you’ve ever played the “I’m not touching you game” as a child, you know how important boundaries are and our need for space. Revit families are no different. A 3D element provides a great parametric visual of what we can expect outside of the virtual world, but without the proper clearances the equipment may not be given the space it truly needs to function.
In the last blog I started down the road of successful Record Model (RM) creation, because as we know, Record Models are one of the most powerful demonstrations of Building INFORMATION Modeling. In part two, I wrap up this glorious feat with not one, but TWO amazing tips that cause the most grief with RM’s, hard paths versus relative paths and why are there so many links showing? I have shortened certain steps to keep the blog interesting, if you want the full procedure contact U.S. CAD and we can give you the exact steps towards an incredible deliverable that has been tried and tested.
