- [Instructor] I'd like to wrap up our discussion…of working with CAD files in Revit with a few tips,…and maybe a couple dos and don'ts.…So I'm going to start off by reminding you…that when you bring in a CAD file,…either import or link, you can always select that CAD file…and access the information within it.…Now remember that the CAD file's organized in layers,…so one of the easiest ways to figure out what layer…everything is on, is to use this query button…right up here on the ribbon.…When I click that query button, that will put me in a mode…where I'm able to reach in and select individual elements…within the CAD file.…
And one of the bits of information…that I'm probably most interested in,…is what layer is that item on, in this case, A detail fine.…When I click okay, I'm still in the mode,…and I could select something else.…And that particular item is on A detail bold.…Now in addition to being able to tell me…what layer things are on,…I've also got some buttons down here…where I could manage it further.…
