- [Narrator] In this video I want to look at another use for…bringing in CAD files into your Revit project,…and that is for typical standard details.…So many firms have libraries of standard details…that they've accumulated over the years…and often many of these might be created in…AutoCAD or some other CAD program that predated…your use of Revit.…So you certainly could recreate all of those…existing standard details directly in Revit…and create them in native format and…that would be preferable ideally but you…might have a hard time justifying the time…and effort that it would take to do that.…So an alternative is to simply use the existing…CAD library that you have and import those…details into your Revit projects and print them…right along with your Revit project sets.…
And so that's certainly possible to do.…So that's the process I'd like to look at here.…So the first thing I want to do is decide…where I want to put this imported detail.…When I look at the project browser,…you'll notice that I'm in a level one floor plan…
