File sharing is a big deal in Revit. Without it, only one person can work in a model at a time. What fun is that? This video will illustrate how to set up work sharing. You will create a central model and learn how a local model is created. Lastly you will learn how to create worksets and assign objects to those worksets.

I'm gonna click Open.…I always pin it, even though and it doesn't matter…for this video, it's just a good habit.…Let's skip a couple times.…Insert, let's link Revit.…Let's grab our structural model.…Origin to Origin.…Let's click Open.…We know, click Close.…Let's go to a 3D view.…Zoom in on where you can find some structure.…Select it.…Pin it.…Okay, let's turn on worksharing now.…
If we go to the Collaborate tab,…what we need to do is…click on the Collaborate button right here.…
