Revit Groups vs Links

On this episode of BIM After Dark Live I will be joined by friend of the show Aaron Maller to talk about Revit Groups vs Links … That’s right… We are going to try our best to answer the age-old Revit question of when to use Revit groups or when to use Revit links.

In typical Aaron fashion, he has spent some serious amount of time studying the pros and cons of both options… Will we land on a decision? Will there be a winner?

Tune in to find out.
