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).
