The Pragmatic Reviteer on Udemy, Revit Deployment & Management!
2014 Update - coming soon!
Revit 2014 is just around the corner, and the Deployment & Management Tool will be there with revised scripts, new information about 2014, and a new feature…Scripted Uninstalls! Delete old software you don’t need any more, patch old software you do need, and install the new version, all with a single click.
Get the course now, and get a head start on learning the tools, and be ready to roll with 2014 as soon as it is available. And if you already have the Deployment & Management course, you get the upgrade to 2014 automatically.
This course is a combination of videos covering the process of sharing content, customizing Revit, creating deployments, and modifying included scripts to automate the entire deployment and management process. I’ll take you through each topic step by step, with extensive videos and reference materials. Whether 2013 is your first deployment ever, or your 10th, you will find something useful that saves you time and frustration, and allows for more time on the important things. Like family creation!
We will cover a wealth of information, including how to …
- Establish a shared content folder structure that makes content easy for users to find and use, and easy for BIM Managers to update and add to.
- Customize the Revit.ini and other files to make Revit as user friendly and powerful as possible.
- Build, test and use custom Deployments.
- Install or upgrade FlexLM.
- Install office standard fonts.
- Automatically deploy programs like Revit, NavisWorks, 3DS Max, even AutoCAD.
- Install addins, either locally or run from your network.
- Roll out office standard data files such as Revit.ini, avoiding the permissions bug with Custom INI files.
- Manage the FlexLM timeout setting to support licenses over the WAN.
- Disable CommCenter once and for all.
- Replace the Autodesk provided Material Libraries with office standard content.
- Launch batch deployments with a single click, or push them out with SCCM.
- Automatically migrate user Keyboard Shortcut customizations, or seed users with an office standard set.
- Automatically seed the Places bar with useful items like Revit local Files, the Windows Links folder and Office Libraries, all at the top of the list where they are useful.
- Automatically place program shortcuts on the user’s Task Bar.
- Address the issue of duplicate users when employing Roaming Profiles.
- Manage user content and settings over time.
