On this episode of BIM After Dark Live I will be joined by Nick from RevitPure to talk about how to schedule grouped elements in Revit and more…
Nick and I will be briefly talking about when to use groups, assemblies, and links and then diving into some best practices when choosing to use groups.
Some topics we will touch on include:
– The origin point of a group in Revit
– Best practices for elements to use within Revit groups.
– The dangers of “fix groups” command.
– Scheduling elements that exist within a group
– and more….
So sit back, relax, and let’s geek out!
