Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding design options, part of Revit: Phasing and Design Options.
When you're designing, you often want to explore more than one possible solution.…Sometimes they are just variations of a single theme, and in other cases each scheme is radically different from the others.…In traditional workflows you would often resort to performing a Save As in order to explore such design alternatives.…While this is certainly possible in Revit 2, a better workflow in many cases is to use the Design Options tool.…Design Options allows you to maintain and switch between multiple schemes within the same Revit model.…So let's take a quick look at the overall intent of the tool first.…
The first thing is that it's designed for and intended to be used in early design exploration,…so typically you're going to see this tool work best in schematic design or early design development.…It's assumed that eventually one of these Design Options that you develop will be accepted.…In other words, the others will get removed from the model and the one that you and your…client decide on will become part of the main model again.…
