How to: Copy Objects to Different Level

copy

How can we copy Revit objects to different levels? You can do it using copy tools from Revit ribbon, of course. You can open elevation view, or even 3d view and simply copy them. But not all type of Revit objects can use this tool: have you tried to duplicate walls to different level using this tool?

Sometimes it’s also difficult to select  objects in elevation views. You can use copy to clipboard if you want to paste them to different level(s) at the same position.

Open your plan view, select objects you want to duplicate. On your ribbon, contextual tab, clipboard section, click copy. Or you may press [ctrl] + C just like any other Windows apps :)

Now, click paste aligned. From the dropdown menu, click select levels.
