Revit Tip: Template

How to start a new project

Always start a new project from a template file! These files are different from Revit files because their file extension is .rte and not .rvt. They are specifically designed to be used as a starting point for a new project. You will also never run into a problem with central files, local files, and usernames.

This method prevents you from bringing along a bunch of stuff you don't need, want, or that might even be old or wrong.

That's it. No more tip for today. Never copy a project to start a new one, never ever do it.

Hi David, the only problem I have come across so far with .rte files is that worksets aren't enabled...for this reason my office is trying to start all projects from a .rvt file. Is there a way to have worksets setup from a .rte file so that we can start projects from templates as they are meant to be?
