Click the File Locations tab of the Options dialog to set paths for files and directories.
Files and Directories
- Specify the path for the default template file. The Revit installation automatically sets this path; however, you may want to change it if you need to use either Imperial or Metric units for your project. There are default templates installed in either Revit\Imperial Templates\ or Revit\Metric Templates. Select whichever one is appropriate. Also, you can change this path to point to a custom template to use for all your projects.
- Specify the default project path where Revit saves the current file. This setting overrides the default path for saving files. When you specify a folder, Revit opens that folder by default when you save or open a file.
- Specify the path for the templates and libraries. The Revit installation automatically sets this path; however, you may want to change it if you need to use either Imperial or Metric families for your project. There are default templates installed in either Revit\Imperial Library\ or Revit\Metric Library.
- Specify the root path for point cloud files. The Revit installation automaticallhy sets this path; however, you may change it. The Saved Path information for point cloud files in the Manage Links dialog is relative to this root path location. If you change this root path, you may need to reload any point cloud files that are already linked in Revit projects.
NoteTo improve performance and reduce network traffic, the recommended workflow for worksharing is for each user to copy the point cloud files locally. As long as the relative path to the local copies of the point cloud files is the same for each user, the link will remain valid when you synchronize with Central. In some cases, it may be easiest to store point cloud files in the root directory.
- Add secondary libraries that may be specific to your company. To do this, click Places. See Places.
