Check Read understand them Data disconnect... DD CD Content Decisions you make when using worksharing and setting up worksets can have long lasting effects on the project team. AutoCAD users will recognize some of these implications from setting up xref structures for projects. In general when setting up worksets you should consider the following Default Default content Default Parameters Default PD SD content Default Windows printer Default Worksets visibility Deleting an Object Styles Depending on your firms project types you may need multiple templates. In the days of yore the CAD days we saw template files as typical floor or ceiling or detail drawing templates. Now with Revit we must see not the sheet that determines the template but the project type. Deployment location Deployment v. stand alone Design Intent Design Options Design Options Final Design Solution Design options provide a way to develop alternative designs in a project whether to adapt to changes in project scope to review other designs or to show different options to a client.

Dont change export to CAD Dont forget to configure tools and content locations Dont relinquish Dont use your CAD Details Library Im not saying dont use the DWGs that are there. Under your Revit Project Folder create a CAD Details Folder. Then LINK in the CAD details as DWG. This will allow you to modify the CAD details layer standard and then Explode the Detail.

Revit Company Revit Architecture tracks the phase in which views or components are created or demolished and lets you apply phase specific filters to views so that you can define how the project appears during various stages of work. You can also use phase filters to control the flow of building model information into views and schedules.

The title speaks for itself The woods are lovely dark and deep There are both Use and Creation Best Practices. There are only two kinds of parameters in Revit Title Blocks Dimensional and Visibility. Yes of course you still have access to all possible parameters but youre only going to use the two I mentioned. There are two KINDS of Familys in Revit There are two project file types for Revit There are two ways to looking at this. The oh thats horrible way and the sweet just what I wanted way. You will have to know your CAD Detail Library status to choose one of the two ways. These Families DO NOT have to be perfect we may only have to use them once. These two things are going to create issues. Files management issues we will address these in future BMSS Tutorial s.

Youll see where they should be stored and what should be contained within them. Keep in mind how Revit place holders will affect whats default in your project compared to what will be used in CDs.

Web Access Webinar Link https www gotomeeting.com register Week Date Day TutorialLecture Topic Weekly project prints Well this is so close to AutoCAD that it should be a review for you however as with all things there are gotchas What What about Central Files What about materials. What about System and Standard Families What are design Options What do you use to edit Detail Components. What happens if I fail What happens when you dont. What is Phasing What is the point. Is it What Release are they own What should your SEAL be. What will tomorrow's opt environment will look like OT CCS PETC What worked what didnt and WHY What you need to know THEY ARE PROJECT BASED. When When creating families if you create new Object Styles for Lines or Symbolic lines you are creating new Subcategories in that families Category. When you insert that family into a project you now have more Subcategories the project. When I say project based you need to understand that this creates management issues. When you are printing in black and white When you insert and explode a CAD detail in Revit it will create new line styles in the Revit project. These line styles are based off the CAD files layer name. Be sure to use the same layer names in all your CAD details. Then control the weight of the printed line from the one line style in Revit. Where are they the project save where you are still deciding what option to go with. Who Who can update it. Who creates these. WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THEM Who modifies these. Whose woods these are I think I know. Why Why the big one William Perez Wrigley Antonio Perez Kodak Carlos Gutiérrez Kellog Window Close Inactive Windows Workaround Tips WORKING PM WORKSETS Worksets and templates Worksets are crap. Worksets are great. Worksets are Revits way of breaking a project up so that multiple people can work on it. There is no Right way to use worksets to a project. I will give you some guidelines to conceder while creating worksets for a project. Worksets the how and why WYSISYG Yes they are different than Standard Families You are not alone. You are not alone. You are not alone. This entire industry is changing completely. BIM has created a paradigm shift similar to the paradigm shift of CAD moving from pen and paper to CAD. Companies that see BIM as a trend and try to ride it out will fill in the blank with an image of doom and despair. You my overwork CAD manager are about to embark on a quest for job sanity. Today well give you a rock solid outline to cling to as we set off for this distant treasure. You are responsible for any content you create here You can Demolish an Element You can override project object styles on a view by view basis. For more information see Visibility and Graphic Display in Project Views. You can use Detail Components at every scale You can use the detail component tool to create custom line type You cannot Transfer Design Options You create an Audit Process for their content You dont ever have to manage the default for Autodesk. If you ever modify any Autodesk content then it has become Project content. If you modify download content you should create an audit process for it. Either create a sub folder under the Downloaded Content folder or some other process. Dont just move it into your Project Content you dont know what it does you dont know what release it was created in. You have to know what is inserted when you explode CAD files. You know it. I know you know design options but. While working with a firm in San Diego I realized that there is a lot to manage. Did you know you can work on two projects at the exact same time. Now thats using multipliers to make money. You know what manufacture you are pulling content down from You may be working on multiple Revit projects at the same time please created a sub folder for each project. You may create edit and save any content in this folder You may download and save any content in this folder You may download and save any content in this folder You must be P in the ultimate outcome u need the C to get there. You only have to create your Titleblock once and it will be used a number of times in each project for all your future Revit Projects. Dont risk bringing in bad CAD data. You will create Multiple Views one for each option or combination of option You will print Multiple Options on one sheet for side by side comparison You will want to set up a company standard for creation of a local file Your company must grow to survive and change is a necessary part of growth. Perhaps Revit will not line up with your companies mission statement. Perhaps you are unwilling to change for either lack of resources lack of desire or an inability to overcome fear. I cannot change that for you however if you are willing to move forward with Revit NOW is the time to start. Your Mission Statement for Revit though a Kaizen approach for implementation achieve a Revit Based Project environment Your view name will then have the specific option information on the sheet.
