Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Detaching a model, part of BIM Manager: Managing Revit.
- [Instructor] Sometimes I like to…grab a model and detach it.…That way it's not linked back to our live central model,…and I can do whatever I want.…In this video we're going to do just that.…So in Revit under projects,…let's go open.…Browse to where you're keeping your exercise files.…Now what I want to do is I want to…select my architectural model;…but now down here under work sharing,…I want to click on detach from central.…Now I want to click on open.…Now we can do one of two different things.…We can detach and preserve the worksets,…which makes it a lot easier to save it as a central again;…or we can detach and discard worksets.…
So let's detach and preserve worksets.…Now what this does if I go to the Save As,…if I go to Save As Project;…and if I click on my options here,…notice that it's going to make it…a central model after I save it.…If I click okay here,…it's architectural,…it gives it an underscore and then detached.…We can save it right over the top and click save.…Yes, we want to replace it.…Now we're in the central model,…
