Collaborate with confidence with Revit worksharing. Learn how to create and edit local files and sync them with central.
- [Instructor] Hello. My name is Paul F. Aubin, and I'd like to welcome you to this course for users of Revit Work Share-enabled projects. Revit is a bit unique in that it stores all the information for a project, within a single project file, making working in teams, an interesting challenge. This is because typically with most computer programs, only one user can access a file at any given time. So to solve this, Revit has work sharing. Work sharing is a collection of tools that allows for multiple user access to a single project file. In this course, I will focus on the skills required to be a user in a work share-enabled project.
I won't be discussing topics like How to Create Essential File. Topics like this will be covered in the Work Sharing Management course. Rather, we will be making sure that you know the right way to access Essential File, and to create a local file each day when you come to work. And if you don't know what I mean by central and local files, don't worry we'll cover that too. So whether you're just starting out at a new job in Revit and need some familiarity with the process of working in a team, are implementing work sharing in your office for the first time, and wanna understand what the day-to-day workflow will be like, or you just wanna learn more about how to be a good Revit Project Team Member, then you've come to the right place.
Let's get started.
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
- Worksharing tips
