I'm using revit 2012.  I would like to export all of my curtainwalls, which i have isolated to a particular workset, to a new Revit file where i can play around with them without messing up my original project.  I can't seem to find a way to "Save to New File" like you can for a detail or drafting view.  I would prefer to export my isolated view into a fresh new project instead of saving a new file and deleting out everything else.  Anyway to do this?  Thanks.

Just have both projects open then copy to clipboard and paste in your new file.

Another way to go is to group your curtainwalls (and/or anything else you'd like in another project), then save the group as a project. Right click on the group in the project browser, save group.

Thanks.  I tried the copy/paste but it took 20 minutes to do the selection of the entire exterior skin and paste into another project.  And not everything came in. The group seems to be the way to go.  Thanks!

20 minutes?  I thought you said they were on an isolated workset.  I could do this is less than 3 minutes. ... and everything would be there.  Just turn all worksets off in 3D except for your "particular workset".  Window and copy to clipboard.

 

No reason why something didn't transfer.

I'd use design options. keep the original as the primary and mess around with other options. that way if you come up with something better its live in your project enviroment.
