- [Male Instructor] If you watched the previous video,…then you saw that it takes a few steps…to position two files relative to one another…in the correct locations and positions.…And while it's not difficult to do,…it's just move and rotate,…it's certainly not something…that you want to be doing all the time.…So if things change, and files move around,…you don't want to have to keep resetting those orientations.…So there's a wonderful tool in Revit…called shared coordinates,…where you can permanently save…the relative positions of one building to another,…and save it right in the file.…So I'm going to demonstrate that with this file…that I have open here,…that actually has two different links.…
So I'm in my office building,…so if you kind of move around, and hover over things,…you could see all the different geometry is selecting,…so that means I'm in that file.…And then if I come out here…and click anywhere on the site model,…you'll see that that entire thing is one Revit link,…and then this little shed over here,…
