How does it work?
Companies with many designers usually need a network license, so that's how our Smart Browser Power and Smart Browser Simple products are set up. Their network licenses allow user rights specification. For example, the network administrator can indicate that 10 out of 100 employees will be Smart Browser Power users while all the others will Smart Browser Simple users. (Simple provides has fewer features but helps avoid designers’ self-will when loading elements into a project.)
If you need to manage user installation and modify many Revit families in your projects, we suggest our powerful BIM solution Smart Browser Manage. With it, you can search, review, insert, modify, or add new families quickly and easily:
