Topic: Efficiently Controlling Visibility with One Workset

Are you tired of troubleshooting visibility of item in Autodesk Revit that you’ve placed but can’t see? Or perhaps you are tired of always hiding the same elements in certain types of views. This class covers the use of Autodesk Revit families, shared parameters, categories, and filters with view templates to automatically control the visibility of elements in the model. We will cover the creation of filters along with implementation into a project template using view templates. Using this method in place of user-defined worksets allows you to quickly create new projects and views within those projects with the correct visibility/graphics settings.

This class will help you implement standards that allow users to easily understand and apply filters. We will also touch on some best practices and limitations. By taking full advantage of Autodesk Revit’s visibility controls, designers and engineers can spend less time worrying about visibility issues and more time focusing on design. Leaving only one workset in the model is the most efficient way to ensure that designers never select the incorrect workset.

    This idea of using worksets as viability controls has been a recipe for disaster for years. There have been several Autodesk University courses explaining the perils of using work-sharing for visibility controls. Worksharing is about being effective with sharing work and being efficient. If you are still object borrowing, you are losing your company money every split second adds up. When I was at Autodesk Consulting when doing BIM health checks we discovered this behavior incrementally cost projects thousands of dollars a week per team. An organization Mature in BIM will know how to leverage worksets per project and establish good “click-open-specify” behavior.
