To access a workshare enabled project, you have to create a local model from the central model. This is accomplished in the open dialog box. It is critical that all team members perform these steps the same way in order to have everything function properly.
- [Instructor] This video will look at…creating a local file.…So it's time for us to join a project team…that is working in a workshare-enabled project.…And we need to do this whenever we have two or more users…that need to access the same file at the same time.…So the first step in joining any project team…is to simply create a local file from the central model.…If you didn't watch the exercise files video,…then I highly recommend that you do that right now,…because if you're using the exercise files…provided with this course, they will not function…properly until you've followed the steps…that were listed in the exercise files video.…
So please make sure you do that before you continue.…To get started, all I need to do here is…go to the open command and point to my central file.…Now I can do that using the open link right here…on the projects area of the recent file screen,…the open icon here on the quick access toolbar,…or the open command here on the application menu.…I do not want to use any of these icons…
Part 1 (Revit Worksharing: Users) introduces all of the terminology and techniques that you need to know to join and participate in a workshare-enabled project successfully. Learn how to create and edit local files, and connect and sync them with the central model. Plus, find out how to create useable collections of elements called worksets and detach files from the central project when necessary.
While the only way to truly master Revit collaboration is to participate in a worksharing project with a real team, this series is designed to give you the tools you need to collaborate with confidence and get up to speed quickly and efficiently.
- Creating a local file
- Editing a local file
- Synchronizing with central
