In this video, the overall assumptions of the course are laid out to ensure that viewer's expectations are met properly. We will be exploring worksharing from the point of view of the person responsible for managing the project and its assets. We assume that they are working on a LAN and not a WAN, nor using Revit Server.
- [Teacher] Now I know you're anxious to get started…learning new techniques that you'd need to begin…managing your Revit workshare-enabled projects,…but just to make sure that we're all on the same page,…I'd like to just take a few moments and go through…some of the overall concepts and terminology…to make sure that we have a clear understanding.…So let's start with just a really rough diagram…of how the whole process works.…We have a Central Model, we have multiple Local files,…one for each user, and we have worksets and elements,…which are the tools that we use to interact…with the objects within our project.…So it starts at the top with the Central Model.…
The Central Model is your master file.…That master file lives up on a network server,…and it should be accessible to all the users,…and all users must access the server the same way.…In other words, all from the same…drive letter or the same UNC path.…So UNC paths are supported, but drive letters are preferred,…so ideally, you wanna make sure that all the users…
Paul F. Aubin teaches you the skills you need to create your central model, configure worksharing settings, and perform ongoing maintenance as the project progresses. Learn how to move a central file, update links, upgrade projects, open local copies in detached mode, and archive the project when it's done. Plus, find out how to monitor sharing and user activity. This course covers all the skills you need to manage worksharing projects from start to finish.
