We are a medium sized affordable housing firm that is now at 50% CD for our first Revit project. We are at the point right now where we are having to decide what to do with our details. The way we have handled details in CAD before was a little haphazard. Instead of having one comprehensive library, we just took applicable details from our older projects and modified as necessary. In other words, our details are disorganized and it would take a lot of cleanup to get them in order.
It seems we have a few options:
OPTION 1: Link in the details from CAD and make any changes in CAD. This seems like a short term solution - what will we do when CAD no longer exists anymore?
OPTION 2: Live Revit details. This is a good option for anything that is completely custom to the project, but it won't work for standard details that need to be shared throughout the office.
OPTION 3: Clean up our CAD details and import them into Revit, then full explode them. This seems like a lot of work to clean up, re-annotate, re-hatch, etc. everything.
How have other people approached 2D details in Revit that need to be shared? Are there more options then those listed above?
Thanks for your help!
