I have been playing with a trial version of revit trying to learn and was wondering if anyone here that uses it knows how to achieve something: (i am brand new to revit) If I have a house with a split level, say 3 steps, would you set up your drawing so that the step down is a new level? Or just treat it as 1 level? Same with a larger job of say 5 townhouses that have different Floor levels due to a sloping site would they all be classed as different floors as the ground floors are on different levels or do you keep them all as ground floors and only true first floors are a different level? If anyone could help with the correct way of treating levels in this situation it would be appreciated.

Personally, I would create new levels for each floor level, purely for ease of construction in the revit model (it would get too confusing otherwise), but set up one level as a (for example) "ground level" with it's view properties extents to include all your other "ground" levels. (I've used the word level a fair bit there haven't i?! ) Otherwise, when it comes time to documenting, you'll end up with pages and pages of floor plans that really are pretty much the same level. I just confused everyone haven't I? Ideas anyone?

Thanks for the reply.....what you said actually made sense (I did read it twice to check!). I was a bit unsure on how I would approach this with the way revit works so thanks for helping.
