Autodesk® Revit® can save a lot of time working on similar or big projects. Best way for that are Revit project templates.

Revit users can save system families (walls, floors etc.), component families (doors, windows, furniture etc.), sheets, schedules, annotations, graphics and so on to their project templates, therefore starting a new project, a lot of time can be saved skipping creation of schedules or importing needed families. However projects are different and we can’t create template that will suit all projects or few templates that we can choose from our new project and the chosen template will fit it 100%.

There are even situations when, for example, schedules from multiple different projects have to be used in a new project. Also, sometimes beginners forget to use required project template and have problems transferring their work to a project template. There is a partial solution for that using Revit project linking, binding it afterwards, while losing annotations, detail items, views etc. but this topic is not about this way.

First of all, let’s see how the system family types, annotations, tags, view templates etc. can be transferred between projects (those are just types, not designed elements of the project).

Truss+ 3While developing our solution for truss modelling in Autodesk® Revit® Truss+ RT we have come up with some fixes that let users use the solution more stably. There were some issues with Revit® 2014, especially with metal trusses due to Revit's limitations to minimum lengths.

We've found that with certain conditions faces of Revit® families reach the minimum length of 1/32 in. (0.8 mm) allowable by Autodesk® Revit® and cause families to collapse. We've done a workaround and put the entire package to the Update to avoid this issue.

We've updated Revit® truss families and Truss+ RT itself. For stable use of it, use the new Revit® trusses that come with new Truss+ RT update ONLY.

Important:

Thank you.
