Description

Description

In the last 2 years, Revit®-based software has added a number of features that make it even more important to maintain a solid company template that can help to ensure high-quality, consistent documents and data. Yet at the same time projects are constantly evolving along with your standards, or your firm is so large that a single template can't fit all that you need. This class examines some of the key feature changes in Revit, their impact on how your project teams work, workflows for how to make sure project teams can get the latest standards, and a review of some simple API utilities that can make it even easier for users to fully use the benefits of the project template you've worked so hard to build.

Target Audience
