Just what are worksets? How many should we have? And what should they be used for? These and other high-level questions on worksharing are discussed in this video.
- [Teacher] We're just about ready to start creating…our first Central Model, but before we do, I wanna talk…about one of the very important pieces of any Central Model,…and that is the worksets that it contains.…So I thought it would be a good idea for us to have…a common understanding of what we mean by worksets…before we go ahead and start that setup.…So let's start with the kinds of worksets that we have.…There are actually four, and you can see…their names on the bottom of the Worksets dialog.…So we have User-Created, Families,…Project Standards, and Views.…
Now let's start with what I call the Revit-created worksets.…These include the families,…the views, and the project standards.…Family worksets are created for each…and every loaded family in your project.…So when you load a door family,…it'll create a workset for it.…When you load a furniture family,…it'll create a workset for it.…Likewise with your views.…When I create a new floor plan,…it'll also create its own workset.…If I create a section, it'll create…
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.
