Worksets are collections of related elements in named sets. You can create these for a variety of useful purposes. Each project team and firm will have varying strategies with regard to how many, and how these are named and used.
- [Instructor] In this video, I want to talk about worksets.…Worksets is an important part of the worksharing puzzle,…and so it's worth taking a step back to…talk about worksets, what they are,…and what role they play in our worksharing projects.…So let's start with the different kinds…of worksets that we have available.…There are actually four different kinds,…and you can see them in the worksets dialogue…down at the bottom of the dialogue.…We have User Created, Families,…Project Standards, and Views.…Now, if those checkboxes look familiar,…then perhaps you remember seeing those…in the middle of the Synchronize with Central dialogue.…
We had each of those four checkboxes there…that we could relinquish…if you had ownership of any of those elements,…and then there was a fifth checkbox…for the borrowed elements.…So, let's start with the first three…that I'm going to call the Revit-created worksets.…I'm calling them Revit-created because Revit will…create these worksets automatically for you,…and Revit will also manage them for you.…
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
