The following steps provide the general workflow for setting up and using workshared projects.
- Select the project to share.
A workshared project is one that several team members need to work on at the same time.
For example, a team may have different members assigned to work on specific functional areas, such as the interior layout, the exterior shell, and the furniture layout.
For example, a team may have different members assigned to work on specific functional areas, such as HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems.
- Enable worksharing.
When you enable worksharing, Revit creates the central model for the project. The central model is like the project database. It stores all changes made to the project and stores all current workset and element ownership information. It is recommended that after the central model is created, all work be done in local copies of the central model. All users will need to save a copy of the central model on their local network or hard drive. All changes can be published to the central model and all users can load other users’ changes from the central model at any time.
See Enabling Worksharing.
- Optionally, set up worksets.
A workset is a collection of elements, such as walls, doors, floors, or stairs.
A workset is a collection of elements, such as ducts, air terminal, or air handlers.
When you enable worksharing, several default worksets are created (2 default user-created worksets, and worksets for the families that are loaded in the project, project standards, and project views). For more information, see Default Worksets.
You can create worksets based on functional areas, such as interior, exterior, or site.
You can create worksets based on functional areas, such as HVAC, electrical, or plumbing.
See Setting Up and Managing Worksets.
- Begin worksharing.
Each team member creates a copy of the central model on the local network or hard drive to begin using worksharing.
