Making Revit Work for You: Standardizing Work Sets, Linking, and Graphic Management to Create a Standard
Autodesk University
Collapse Expand


This class will dig into Revit software with tips and tricks from the low-hanging fruit (symbols, text, and standards) and things to consider (metric, Imperial or soft metric, geographies, and so on). We'll look at using note block content for abbreviation lists and schedules, processing diagrams using custom families, and keynoting. We'll cover assemblies codes, what view templates are and how to use them effectively for consistency from templates forward, sample practices for view naming and browser management in anticipation of exports, and ways of managing work sets in local and linked files to help speed up your system by simply organizing data. We'll also look at how work sets track through links, schema for management, best practices on file sizes, and how to push those limits and possibly a few Dynamo Scripts to assist in management and setups of projects.

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to establish basic graphics, units, and tasks like abbreviation lists and process diagrams (possible Dynamo scripts), and understand what Revit categories and subcategories are
  • Learn how to work with keynoting lists, add to keynote lists (using basic Excel macros), identify assembly codes, and create schedule primers for cost estimating
  • Learn how to use a framework for view types and view naming conventions for organization (project browser) and linking federated modes
  • Learn how to create work sets for managing content across large projects
