- [Voiceover] In this movie, I want to take a moment…to talk about how you access a file…in a multi-user environment.…I'm gonna just do a really quick example here…just to kinda give you the process,…and the main reason I'm doing it is because…in most of your firms,…you're gonna be accessing files this way.…However, for the remainder of the course,…we won't be accessing files this way.…Let me explain.…When you want to work with multiple users…on the same Revit project,…we create what we call a central file.…That central file is usually stored…on a network server of some kind,…and it's set up by either your CAD or BIM manager…or some other model manager person in your office.…
That central file is not accessed directly…by any of the users.…What we do instead is we click on the central file…and we create what we call a local copy.…That local copy gets stored on our own local hard drive,…we make our changes, and then every so often…we synchronize with the central file to make updates,…and then our coworkers do the same thing,…
AuthorPaul F. Aubin
First, get comfortable with the Revit environment, and learn to set up a project and add the grids, levels, and dimensions that will anchor your design. Then author Paul F. Aubin helps you dive into modeling: adding walls, doors, and windows; creating and mirroring groups; linking to external assets and DWG files; and working with floors, roofs, and ceilings.
Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawings so all the components are clearly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
