In this article we are going to take a look at how 2D and 3D Extents work in relation to Levels. And you probably know what I’m going to say next! Rather than just repeating the theory, we are going to use a simple building example in order to convey the principle.

 

 

 

Hopefully by now, you are conversant and comfortable with the general concept of Levels within Revit. If you need a quick refresher on Levels in general, you may wish to read this article first before proceeding.
