I’m looking into ways to batch initialize Revit models onto the new BIM 360 Docs (Document Management) platform. It is a work in progress at the moment – in Revit 2018, I think that there is limited ability to use newer API features for creating a Cloud ModelPath for batch processing. But more on that later…
For now, I wanted to replicate a folder structure from a local network onto the BIM 360 Docs platform. To do this, you just need the Desktop Connector + Preview installed, and then you copy and paste the data.
Here are the steps:
- Clear Pending Actions on Desktop Connector for BIM 360 (recommended, use with care)
- Work Offline (recommended). Folders will appear blue in Windows Explorer.
- Set the folder path in the and create a CMD script using code below. It populates each subdirectory with a text file indicating the contents of the directory.
