Safely Accepting the Primary Option

Accept Design Options - Exercise

Once a client has accepted an option, the other options should be removed from the model so only the primary option is kept.

It is highly recommended you make a copy of your current model as a detached model for archival purposes, which contains all the design options prior to accepting the chosen design option. When you accept a design option, all other options and related views will be deleted.

To accept the chosen design option, follow these steps:

  1. Open Revit.  
  2. Open your architectural model. 
  3. In the Manage tab>Manage Project panel, select the Starting View command. 
  4. In the Starting View dialog box, select Sheet: 00 - STARTUP from the drop-down list and click OK.



  5. At the very bottom of the Revit window, click the Design Options button. 
  6. In the Design Options dialog box, select the Building Front option set. 
  7. In the Option Set panel on the right, click Accept Primary…
  8. In the Accept Primary dialog box, a warning is displayed that elements might be deleted. Select Accept primary, as shown below.



  9. In the Deleted Dedicated Option Views dialog box, it is indicated that the DO-Front-Red sign view will be deleted. Click Delete to accept.



  10. The Building Front option set is removed from the list. 
  11. For the Garden Roof option set, select Red Roof
  12. In the Option panel on the right, click Make Primary
  13. Select the Garden Roof header in the list, to be able to accept the primary. 
  14. In the Option Set panel on the right, click Accept Primary…
  15. As before, in the Accept Primary dialog box, select Accept primary, then in the Delete Dedicated Option Views dialog box, select Delete to delete the two dedicated options views. 
  16. The Garden Roof option set is removed from the list, and there are no other design options in the project. 
  17. Save and close the model.
