Once a local model is opened, each teammember can work as they normaly would. Revit will monitor activities and allow users to "transparently borrow" elements that they wish to edit. In this way, editing becomes "first come, first served."
- [Narrator] In this video I wanna give you an overview of…what it's like to work in a Workshare enabled project.…Now I'm gonna be focusing on primarily Element Borrowing,…so if you watched the video where we defined the terminology…of the Worksharing environment, you recall that there was…really two ways that we can access…objects within an existing model.…We could do it through Worksets,…which were collections of related elements,…or we could do it element by element…using a process called, Borrowing.…So, in this video I am going to focus…on the Element Borrowing approach,…which is much more seamless and fluid and easy for the user,…and in a future video we will talk…more about working with Worksets.…
Okay, so right now we'll focus on the Borrowing.…But, let's go ahead and get a file open first.…So, you may recall from previous videos…that we always wanna make sure we're using the open command.…Now, I'm gonna access it here,…but you can use the icon or the menu…and that gives me the open dialogue,…that's what I need to ensure that I'm creating a new local…
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
- Understanding worksets and the Workset dialog
- Opening a model in detached mode
- Worksharing tips
