- [Instructor] In this video,…I'm going to talk about the Worksharing monitor.…Worksharing monitor is a separate stand alone tool…that you can download from the Autodesk subscription center.…So if you have a subscription to Revit,…then you'll have access to this tool,…it's a free tool that you can download.…You need to install it and…you also need to run it separately from Revit.…And it will run in the background…and it monitors any activity that's taking place…in any Workshare enabled projects that you have open.…So I currently have the Worksharing monitor open,…and as you can see,…myself here, highlighted in blue,…and three other users are currently accessing…the central file called WS Office Building.…
So what's really nice about the Worksharing monitor…is it gives you real time status on what's going on…in the Worksharing environment.…For example, if one of my co-workers decides to synchronize,…I'll be able to see that synchronization in real time…as it's happening right here.…So as you can see, Ringo is currently synchronizing and…
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
