Autodesk Revit Architecture: Adding Levels

Uploaded by AutodeskBuilding on 09.08.2010

Levels are datums that provide references from which elevations are measured or to which elements are constrained.
To create a level, you must be working in an elevation or section view.
When you create a project, at least one level is already defined.
To add a level to the project, on the Home tab, select the Level tool.
As you place a level, drawing aids help you align to the ends of existing level lines.
Click to define each end of the level line.
By default, the Make Plan View option is selected so that each level you create is a story level and has an associated floor plan and reflected ceiling plan.
These plan views are automatically created in the project browser when the level is created.
Clear this option if you are creating a reference level for which no plan views are needed, such as the top of a parapet, which is used only for reference.
You can rename levels and adjust their positions.
Select the level line and then select the name or height to make the change.
If you rename a level, you also have the option of renaming the corresponding views.
Level datums are used as top and bottom constraints for objects like walls, roofs, and floors.
You don’t have to define these constraint values for every building object.
Project levels establish a framework for a project and help you place and constrain building elements.
