Introduction to Worksharing in Revit

A tutorial on how to use worksharing in Revit:
Català - Castellano - Deutsch
Worksharing in Autodesk Revit allows multiple users to work on a single project concurrently. It allows users to check out and check in specific project elements, such as floors, walls, and views, for editing. This ensures that two users don't make conflicting changes to the same element at the same time.

  1. Before you start working with worksharing in Revit, you need to make sure that your project is set up for worksharing. To do this, go to the Collaborate tab and click on the "Set Up Worksharing" button. This will open the "Set Up Worksharing" dialog box.
  2. In the "Set Up Worksharing" dialog box, select the "Central" option and click "Browse" to select a location for the central model. This is the main file that all users will be working on.
  3. Click "OK" to create the central model. You will be prompted to save the project before it can be set up for worksharing.
  4. Once the central model has been created, you can invite other users to join the worksharing project by going to the Collaborate tab and clicking on the "Invite Collaborators" button. This will open the "Invite Collaborators" dialog box.
  5. In the "Invite Collaborators" dialog box, enter the email addresses of the users you want to invite and click "Send Invites".
  6. The invited users will receive an email with instructions on how to join the worksharing project. Once they have joined, you can see their names listed under the "Collaborators" tab in the "Collaboration" panel.
  7. To start working on the central model, you will need to check out the elements that you want to edit. To do this, select the element and go to the Collaborate tab. Click on the "Check Out" button.
  8. Once you have finished making your changes, you can check the element back in by going to the Collaborate tab and clicking on the "Check In" button.
  9. If another user has checked out an element that you want to edit, you can request to borrow it by going to the Collaborate tab and clicking on the "Borrow" button. This will send a request to the user who has checked out the element, and they can decide whether to allow you to borrow it.
  10. To resolve any conflicts that may arise when multiple users are working on the same project, you can use the "Workset" tab to see which elements are being edited by which users. You can also use the "Audit" and "Compare" tools to identify and resolve conflicts.
