    Default Setting Up Project Templates & View Templates???

    I'm just getting into Revit, and I'm starting to see how much time can be saved by setting up not only a project template, but also view templates. Project templates would have annotations with the company standards loaded (fonts, leader symbols, etc), company titleblocks, commonly used families, etc. The View templates would be set for exactly what they're used for.

    Does anyone have any sort of "checklist" of every element that should be assessed when creating/implementing Revit? I completely understand that the odds of getting it right the first time are slim to none, but if I can "learn from other people's mistakes" hopefully I can eliminate a lot of the "oh **** I didn't do ____ and now I'm screwed" moments.

    Also, I think I need to dive into shared parameters ... any good reads on this?

    Thanks,
    Shawn

    Shared parameters are a beautiful thing once you master them. Look into a family editing tool called "Bind Shared Parameters" for quick insertion.

    Start with the OOTB template and work from there.

    This blog was my initial guide to template work.
