- [Instructor] It's time to start dealing with levels. The problem is the architectural underlay and the structural underlay have a bunch of levels in them but we only have two. Levels meaning floor plans or elevations. See, under our floor plans we just have two defaults, one and two. I don't even know what these are supposed to mean but we're going to figure it out. What I'd like to do is actually copy in the levels from the architectural model. We're going to copy them in such a way though that it keeps alive monitor. If the architect moves a level, we'll get a coordination alert the next time we open our model up. So to get started, what we need to do is, we need to go to a south elevation. To go to a south elevation, we learned that in the project browser, we can scroll down to elevations south. Or if you want you can zoom in on this elevation marker here. A double-click on this little hat or the arrow. If you double-click right there, this will actually physically open up that elevation. It's pretty cool. Now what I'm going to do is I'm going to come in here, and I see that we have a bunch of levels and it's a little bit confusing. One thing I want to do is turn off the levels in my structural model. 'Cause we have a bunch of extra levels and I just don't want to see them. Now there's something that you're going to do right now that you're going to be doing for ever. It's called visibility graphic overrides. In the properties, you can either click visibility graphic overrides edit button, or what we'll be doing is typing VG for visibility graphic overrides. Now, keep in mind the visibility graphic overrides are only for the south elevation that were in. Any other view, the overrides we do here, aren't going to affect it. What I'd like to do is I want to go down to Revvit links. I want to select my structural model. And for my display settings, if we click on buy host view, then we go to custom, I'd like to go over to the annotation categories. Under annotation categories, I'm going to hit the drop down and go custom. Now, welcome to Revvit. It looks at everything in terms of objects as opposed to layers. If we want to turn something off, we don't go searching for a layer we search for the actual object that we're going to turn off. What I want to do is I want to scroll all the way down till I find levels. Now on uncheck levels, I want to click Apply, click OK, click Apply, and then click OK. Notice that we've turned them off in the structural model. If you type VG, and you stay on model categories or go to annotation categories, these two items are contained within the model. So here, if I scroll down to levels we'll see that levels are turned on. We've only overridden the levels and the structural model. So click Cancel here. Now here's our two default levels, there's named differently but I'll show you why. I'm going to select level two right on the line right here. And I'm going to click on this little grip. I'm going to pick and hold, and I'm going to drag it over to the right. Notice that we have two levels in our model but if we hover over this level, this is the level and the architecture model. As you can see, we're way off. The first thing I want to do is select level two. And I want it to be at the same elevation as the architectural level two. So I'm going to click where it says 4,000 and I'm just going to type 5486 and hit Enter in level two will now go up to 5486. I'm going to hit Escape a couple of times. Now here's what we need to do. We need to copy these levels into our project. So I'm going to go to the collaborate tab, and I want to click the copy monitor dropdown and I want to select link. Now I'm going to hover over one of these architectural items and I'm going to pause it for a second to make sure I'm clicking the right one. Link Revvit model architectural Revvit one. So this is the one I want so I'm going to pick it. Now in my tools, what I need to do is click on copy. I want to select multiple. Now I'm going to hold down my Ctrl key, I'm going to grab level three, level four, level five, and this is actually their roof level. You can't see it, but we're going to click it. I'm going to pick on level roof. Now I'm going to click on finish. Now, what I'm going to do is go down to these two levels and notice we're still in copy monitor. I'm going to hit Escape a couple of times. This time I'm just going to click Monitor. Because we already have these two levels, so I'm going to select monitor. I'm going to select level two. Now I'm going to select level two again. I'm going to select level one. I'm going to select level one again. We're not going to have anything down on the top of footing so I'm not too worried about that. To verify that it works we have a little heartbeat icon. I'm going to zoom out. I'm going to hit Escape a couple of times. Now I'm just going to click on finish. But what I'm going to look at here is, I'm going to select level four. I'm going to pick it where it says 3D and I'm going to drag it out till it lines up with the levels below it. You'll see level two has a blue datum, level three does not. All the ones we copied actually do not. The problem is we don't have a corresponding floor plan that goes along with the level we just created. That's okay. What we're going to do is we're going to hop over to the view tab and we're going to go plan views, and we're going to go floor plan. Notice that level three, four, five, and roof are missing. So I'm going to grab level three, four, five, and then roof. Now I'm going to click OK. But where did they go? What we're going to do is we're going to scroll down till we find power. The floor plans are under power. So I'm going to right click on one power. I'm going to rename I'm going to call it level 1, click OK. I'm going to right click on two power I'm going to rename it. I'm going to call it level space 2. I'm going to click OK. Now level one, two, three, four, five, and roof. Now we're all set. Up here notice that we have closed hidden windows. We can click that if we get a bunch of windows open. Click close hidden windows, I'm going to go into a 3D view, and our levels are all created.
