To make changes permanent, use synchronize with central. This command will update the central model with user changes, update local models with changes from other users and give users the opportunity to relinquish ownership of owned and borrowed elements.
- [Instructor] In this video I wanna talk about…one of the most important things you'll do…in a workshare enabled project,…and that is Synchronizing with Central.…So Synchronizing with Central is equivalent…in a workshare project to saving in a non-workshare project.…And saving is certainly one of the things…that synchronizing will do,…but it actually does several things in addition to saving.…So, it will save our local file, that's for sure.…In addition to that, it'll take any changes that come from…the central file that our co-workers have made.…It'll pull them down and update my local to match.…It'll take any changes that I've made here in my local…and it will update those on the central file…and save that file, OK?…So it's a two-way process,…which is why they call it Synchronize.…
And in addition to that, I'll be given the opportunity…to relinquish all of the elements that I currently own.…So, there's actually several things that are going on…in the Synchronize dialog, so let's take a look at…what some of those options are.…
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
