Whenever you need to collaborate with multiple stake holders, whether internal or external, a centralized Revit model is required. This ensures all updates and changes are synchronized through the appropriate channels. Autodesk offers two main methods of collaboration using your Revit Central Model. First is the ability to host the Central Model on your own
You’ve just purchased, installed and finally opened Autodesk Revit for the first time. It’s just like having a brand-new car, you start exploring all the gadgets and gizmos of Revit. Then comes the realization: your multi-million dollar Architectural project was already started using 2D AutoCAD to create all the walls, doors, and windows. Now, what
Wherever possible REVIT Walls will always automatically try to join to other walls that they meet. A series of Rules and Priorities will determine how the various layers in your wall types actually join with each other. For the most part, this feature works really well and is seamless. But there will be times when
Imagine you’ve placed a lot of duct and then change the related duct system settings about which fittings should be used. Nothing will happen to the existing duct. The Reapply Type button will take whatever duct you select and REAPPLY your recent changes (to the type) to your selection. Once a duct is placed, it
Load Family into Project and Close After working in the Family Editor to create or modify a family, you can load the family into one or more open projects. Note: The projects into which you want to load the family must be open. In the Family Editor, click Create tabFamily Editor panel (Load into Project).
Rebar scheduling: To improve rebar documentation, you can now include the following parameters and fields in schedules and tags: Host Mark displays the name of the structural element hosting the rebar. Host Count displays the number of identical structural elements hosting the rebar. Quantity by Element displays the calculated value of the total number of
A room is a subdivision of space within a building model, based on elements such as walls, floors, roofs, and ceilings. Place rooms in all closed and bounded areas on the current level. Rooms are automatically created for enclosed areas greater than 0.25 sq. ft. Rooms are created on the current level according to the
When Autodesk first implemented Reinforcement into REVIT evit a few people were wondering how feasible it really would be to model every single rebar in an entire project. Autodesk created a special element for rebar that had very good performance but consequently behaved a little different from standard Revit objects. So for the Revit 2016
We can now quickly isolate selected elements in an ‘unobstructed’ 3D view – by clicking on a new feature on the Modify tab on the ribbon. Great new feature, previously available in a couple of Add-ins. If you select objects in a 3D view, then this feature enables a section box, and crops it around
Revit keeps file editing history inside RVT files (dates and authors of all file saves). This history can be easily displayed with the command File > Show history, resp. in newer versions Collaborate > Synchronize > Show history. After you specify the name of an existing .RVT file, the History dialog is displayed, where you
