When you decide to update to a new version of Revit, you must make the decision carefully. All members of the team must use the same version and care must be taken in upgrading to ensure that all pieces are updated properly.
- [Instructor] So perhaps you're working on a project…that has a rather long life span…and throughout the course of the project…a new version of Revit is released.…So what to do?…Should we continue on in the same version…that we've been working in?…Or do we upgrade our project to the latest release?…Now there are naturally many considerations…that would come into play here,…many more than we could get into in this short video,…but I would say that in most cases…you should only upgrade if the new version…gives you some significant feature or benefit…that was lacking and necessary in the previous version…to whatever the, whatever it is you're doing in the project.…
Whatever that might be,…if you're gonna get some clear and immediate benefit…out of this new release,…then it's a worthy consideration…and you can consider upgrading existing projects.…Also the later a project is in its lifespan…will dictate this.…If I've got a project that just finished schematic design,…it's gonna be pretty safe to upgrade it to the newer version…
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.
