Instructional Demo
Automate Revit to work while your sleeping!

Session Description

Revit was not made to do anything until it's opened by a user. In this presentation I will show you how to use the Microsoft Windows Task Scheduler to launch Revit whenever you want and without your interaction, perform a task for example print to PDF or backup models (and any other tasks you code with the Revit API). This ability has been around for a long time but I decided to submit this presentation because we use this ability more and more all the time and it has saved our company a lot of time and money.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn what in the Revit API has that can give you this ability
  2. Learn what the Microsoft Windows Task Scheduler is and is used for
  3. Understand how Revit and the Microsoft Windows Task Scheduler can work together
  4. See the value of this workflow and value with a demonstration
