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.

In the October 10th Infrastructure Tuesday webinar, Nick Harper discussed four ways that you can coordinate data between Revit and Civil 3D. Read on to learn how you can share your project data in a meaningful way.
Question: I just want to view a Revit model. How can I do this?
Expert Solution: Download the Revit trial version and use the Revit Viewer.
If you’re a company or team that still uses AutoCAD for the majority of your design work, then the sermon of how much “better” Revit is than AutoCAD is a tired one. Why is there such a big push for making the switch from AutoCAD to Revit?
Many architectural designers face the issue of bridging the gaps between preliminary design, design development and construction documentation in Revit. Users needed a tool to seamlessly move their designs in and out of Revit throughout their design process. With FormIt, you can start producing your 3D model designs on your tablet before your morning commute, pick up where you started on your office desktop and switch back to your tablet during your lunch-time meeting with a potential client.

Question:When working in AutoCAD MEP, how do the tools fit into the engineering and design process?
CADLearning Expert Solution: To gain the most advantage, using MEP tools in the correct sequence and for the appropriate task can help you to reduce errors, increase accuracy, and improve both productivity and coordination.
In this installation of the Back to Basics: Revit for MEP Users series, Jack Trexler is covering how to set up your Starting View in Revit. Watch this video to learn this quick process:
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”). What does this mean for you? Revit now contains the capabilities of all three verticals in one application. So, if you were previously using Revit Architecture, for example, you can now do everything you could do before (and more!) in Revit.
In this short clip, Aaron Wagner gives you a quick look at how you can use different views in Revit to make your project documentation more meaningful.
Question: How do object enablers work in Navisworks?
Expert Solution from Heidi Boutwell, CADLearning’s Infrastructure Content Manager: Autodesk uses object enablers in all of its platforms, including Navisworks. Object enablers ensure that model objects are displayed properly.
Greetings from the Infrastructure Universe! I have some really cool videos and tips for AutoCAD, Civil 3D, and more this month. There are also some recent updates from Autodesk. Read on for all of this month’s news.
If you are having difficulty creating a deployment only of your Revit install with your Building Design Suite, it is likely due to a known issue with the Revit Content Libraries. Philip Charlson shares a solution to this issue.
In the first of the “Back to Basics: Revit for the MEP User” series, I walk you through four key steps: opening a template in Revit, linking in an architectural file, checking room bounding, and looking at phase mapping.
