When you receive new versions of linked files, you have to decide how to incorporate them into the project. You can either save the new version over the original, or use the Manage Links dialog to change the path to the new file. This will ensure that the project team always sees the latest version.
- [Narrator] In this video,…I wanna talk about updating linked files…in workshare enabled projects.…As you know, a linked file is just a reference…to another Revit project,…and of course there will be another team of people…working on that other Revit project.…So every so often when that project changes…and they save those changes,…we'll want to update our reference back to that project…via updating our link.…So in this case,…I have an architectural model open on screen,…and I created this architectural model…as a worksharing enabled project back a few videos ago,…so feel free to review those steps if you like.…
And then if you recall at that time,…we added a link to an MEP model, as well.…Now that MEP model is visible in the Section view…if you go to View as this duct work…up here above the ceiling.…But a view that might be a little bit easier…to see what's going on with that MEP model…would be one of our 3D views,…and I have this one here called Dining from Above.…So I'm gonna open that,…and now you can see the ceiling plane here,…
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.
