To wrap up this course, we summarize several important tips to keep in mind when working in workshare enabled projects. Don't work in the central, create a new local regularly, use borrowing, talk to your team and synchronize often are among the most important of these.
- [Narrator] I like to close out our exploration…of the Worksharing user skills that are necessary…by summarizing what we've discussed…in some Worksharing tips.…So, starting at the beginning,…the most important tip rule number one is…never work in the central model.…So always always make sure that you're choosing…create new local and you're not opening that…central model directly.…If you're not the one responsible for maintaining…the central model then you don't really have any…good reason to be in there, so just don't do it.…Now rule number two is refer back to rule number one.…
Okay, so it's really that important.…Stay out of the central model.…I also recommend you create a new local everyday.…There's really no reason to get too attached…to your local file.…It is a temporary file and each time you access…the project you really should just create a new local.…In fact every time you launch revit,…just go ahead and create that new local file.…Now I like to use the append timestamp option…when doing that.…So instead of overwriting my existing local file,…
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
