Revit Settings export for use with other PC

Hi all,

 

I have been trying to search posts on this but to no avail. So here goes:

 

I have Revit 2014 and I want to save the settings I have made such as:

 

  • File locations of templates / families
  • Changes I have made in options
  • workspace

And I want to save them so that I can use it in other computers in the office, rather than making those changes individualy on each computer. It is similar to the AutoCAD 'profiles' .arg and 'workspace' .cuix. Is it possible?

 

Also, when installing Revit, is there a way of NOT choosing the templates I need, thus not downloading them, as I have them already, and then direct Revit to those files after the installation. Because I have done that before, but then there is no example projects in it, and its different from if we choose the template and downloading them when installing it.

 

I hope my language is understandable, and thank you in advance for any help!


Gerald.

Hello gerald.untario,

 

Revit keeps File locations of templates / families settings in special Revit.ini file.

 

After installation:

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\<product and release>\UserDataCache

 

And after first run of Revit it copies this file into user's directory

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Revit\<product name and release>

 

In this file you can set a lot of Revit settings, include paths to libraries and other elements (CSV files, IES and so on)

I highlighted its main parts were you can customize your libraries

So you need just to pick this file from one computer, and update on athers.

If you need to automate installation process, you can even include this file in your Revit deployment!

Hi Alex,

 

Thanks for the help! That's what I wanted to know. But is there any article which I can refer to to learn more on these individual Revit settings and more about revit deployment? Thank you!
