Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the Revit folder structure, part of BIM Manager: Managing Revit.
- [Instructor] As I've mentioned before,…I work at a multi-discipline firm.…We do specific types of projects,…so I break down my models in a specific way.…I'm sure every firm does specific types of projects…as well as a wide range of projects.…What I do find, though, however your firm is aligned,…it is imperative to find a folder structure…and stick with it.…Sure, some project's going to come up…that dictate a slightly different approach,…so having a solid base to start with…is going to serve you well…no matter what the situation is.…Also, taking it a step further,…if you're the prime firm on a project…with sub-consultants, it's even more important…to have a folder structure and naming convention…that allows for a smooth project…with as little confusion as possible.…
What I'd like to do in this video…is look at some folder structure examples.…These folder structures follow the method…that I use to break out Revit models.…Some firms like to combine multiple…trades into a single model.…That's fine if the models aren't going to get huge.…
