This month the Ideate Revit User Group presents a panel discussion on collaboration in Revit. When architects, engineers and contractors interact with each others’ models, several issues emerge:
How and when to link project files?
Who “owns” what?
When does the Level of Detail (LOD) come into play?
Does this effect Project Management, and if so, how?
We will have three panelists present their viewpoints from the Architectural, MEP and Construction disciplines, followed by full group discussion of this critical topic. The ability to coordinate multiple disciplines throughout the process is one of the primary reasons to utilize Revit in your workflow, please join us and add your thoughts to the conversation.
