This video focuses on creating a central model, as well as best methods for creating local files and detaching from central.
- [Instructor] This week I'd like to set up file sharing.…It's pretty easy but it's definitely crucial on any project.…One of the coolest things about Revit…is the ability to allow multiple users…access to the same model.…What happens is Revit will have…a central model that resides on your server.…When each user goes to open the model…Revit will make a copy and put it on your local machine.…This copy is linked to the central model,…it's called the local model.…When you synchronize with this central model…your changes are saved and you can also…see changes that others in the model have done.…
So let's do it.…Let's jump into Revit, under Projects I'd like…to start with an Architectural Template.…The first thing we need to do is save this as something.…So let's click our save button.…Let's browse to a directory that makes sense to you.…Most projects have a project number,…and then the discipline, so I'll go a 1234567…underscore, all caps, ARCHITECTURAL.…
Go to your options.…For the Maximum Backups I'm going to go…with 20 and we'll see how this works.…
