Unit 6 focuses on using Levels, Reference Planes, and Grids as design constraints within a project.  The exercises allowed me to experiment with locking walls and structural columns to grid lines.  I was then able to see how moving the grid lines effects the elements locked to them.  In addition, I created an arced roof using a reference plane (image on left).  These core concepts are extremely beneficial if you want to maintain an underlying structure to a project.  Using these types of design constraints makes it easy to manipulate multiple objects with one edit.
The last portion of the exercise briefly introduced how to create, edit, an apply view templates.
