- [Instructor] An important step of linking…in a Revit project is you often have to make…some adjustments to it to get the positioning correct.…So, what I have here on screen is a host model…that shows our office building…and you can see that down here at the bottom…and then a link file right here…for the site plan information.…Now, that link file came in totally the wrong location,…so what I want to walk through now…is how to move and position that link file…very precisely relative to where it needs to go…with respect to the building.…So, I've put a few things in here…to help us along with this…and I'm actually going to show you two methods to do this.…
So, this first thing I'm going to do…is zoom in region right here…toward the end of this little sidewalk and parking lot…and you'll notice…that there's this little green line right here…and a shorter little green line there.…So, those two green lines…are in there just for reference,…I just sort of drew them in there…and that's going to help us with the moving…and rotating steps that we're going to do shortly.…
