When you have linked models in your workshare enabled projects, they will typically be housed on dedicated worksets exclusively for them. This makes it easier to manage the visibility of linked models in your team projects. Links can also be unloaded on a per-user basis in workshare enabled projects.
- [Voiceover] In this video I wanna talk about…links with worksharing.…This project that I have here actually has a few…linked files, and if we scroll down…on the project browser all the way to the bottom,…you can see there's actually four of them.…But they're all currently unloaded,…so the little red X there indicates that they're unloaded.…Now, you can access the links and reload them…in one of two ways.…You can either right-click on each individual link file…and choose the reload option,…or you can actually go one step above to the 'Revit Links'…branch and choose 'Manage Links' which is what I'm gonna do…so that I can get to all of these together.…
This dialogue will just confirm what we already see here,…that each of the links is currently not loaded.…And when you look over here in the 'Saved Path' column,…you can kind of see where it came from.…Now, there's a 'Links' folder…provided with the exercise files and…each of these links is in that folder,…except for this one right here.…So, all I have to do is select the link that I wanna reload,…
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
