workset organization

workset organization

Hello Autodesk Team

 

please add a feature in workset dialog for an organization workset created.

for example, Add Folder and Sub-Folder for created workset for control worksets.

Worksets are not layers, stop treating them as such. 

 

Autodesk please do not take any notice of this idea.

I third the comment.

In your example, you have I-WALLS and E-WALLS (hmm wonder where that came from?)

Revit already has a Wall Function parameter for Walls that can be set to Interior, Exterior, Foundation, Retaining, etc.

You can use that parameter to set up filters instead of Worksets

HELLO @dplumb_BWBR  @Thierry.A  @CFNBen 

 

Thanks for your good posts

 

Hello
I know this was just an idea for better control and categorization (of course I think). 😁

I would encourage the use of categories to organise your model.  Maybe beyond that use filters with element data.  The main principle of BIM is that the elements know what they are and organisation can be based on queries rather than hierarchy like any other database.

 

Worksets are meant to assist with allowing multiple users to work on the same model.  User worksets are largely legacy since borrowing was introduced.  However, they can still be a powerful tool when used appropriately and help to break a large model up for performance.

 

It looks to me that this suggestion is born of a misappropriation of worksets and I recommend starting here Revit OpEd - How Many Worksets Do I Need? to review best practice.

Hi @GHASEM_ARIYANI

If you do need many workset and you are tired of switching between them all so often, consider this little tool that switches between preset worksets automatically (by category, family or type):

(disclaimer: I'm the developer and I'm more than happy to make further improvements to this!)
