Thanks Tim,

How do you get on with the Design Options feaure? It's one area of Revit that I keep meaning to explore but never seem to find the time :?

Is it worth learing it. We have to explore many options as part of our design process. We normally end up just saving the revit project file with a few different names (Option1, Option2, etc) and changing each one accordingly.

Thanks
Aaron

I think that one could become fairly competent at using Revit fairly quickly, depending on how much you use it and how much you are preepared to explore the software and figure out some of the more intricate capabilities. Doing tutorials and following forums such as this one also help to improve Revit skills. I'm not sure how long you've been using Revit, but keep going - you can only get better.

The design options feature works quite well and is surprisingly easy once you've got the concept. It will save loads of time compared to having different files. Once the design option is initiated, add all the relevant parts of the models to it. Just remember to accept the primary once a decision has been made.

Thanks Tim.

Design Options sounds promising. Will definitely take a look.

Looks great, I have heard there's a plugin coming out for framing in Revit, anyone know about this? For a project like this it looks like you've got some custom framing but a plugin like that would make quick work of the standard stuff...

Hi there!

A huge welcome to you on behalf of everyone here on the forums.

The framing tool was included in the Revit 2010 Subscription Advantage Pack. It is highly likely that it will be included by default in Revit 2011- I cannot see why they wouldn't- but you never know!

Cheers,
Ian
