Revit Error when users don't have the Forma Add-in installed

Hi, we've imported context from Forma into a project - when other team members who don't have the Forma Add-in installed access the file they get the following error. Is this a known issue? Will this cause issues or does it just mean the project will be out of sync with the Forma model?

That's a great question.

 

Unfortunately, without the Add-in installed, Forma cannot track changes in the Revit file.  In other words, any changes made by a user without the Add-in will not be marked to send to Revit, even another user with the Add-in does the sync.

 

At this time, our recommendation is to the get the Add-in installed for all users who will be working on Forma connected Revit projects.

 

Thanks!

Hi Heather, thanks for your reply. In this instance we've only pushed the context to Revit and we don't plan to update it. Is there a way to disable this error? The message mentions renaming the file?

You can use the "Unlink" functionality found with the Load and Update buttons in the Revit ribbon.

This will disconnect your Revit project from the Forma project so there shouldn't be error going forward (but keep in mind the connection will be gone).

 

Thanks,
