My office just wrapped up our 1st CD set with Revit. moving forward, we need to get our templates updated based on what we learned, and we also need to get our detail library up to speed. how does everyone handle their detail library? is it individual files within a windows/folders sub-tree? is it a couple of .rvt files with similar details in the same files (roof file, plan file, thresholds/jamb/head file, etc.)? other methods? i am one of the few people responsible for getting this new Revit Method established for my office and would appreciate feedback. thank you! gd

I'm new to Revit myself, using it since last December. What I did; I created new details one-by-one in new drafting views, saving them as "views" (if you're using Revit 9, otherwise "group" them) in a details folder. Then I opened the template file I created for our office, with our standard cover sheet, general notes, and titleblocks on all sheets. I made a new sheet for the details, divided them in roughly 6" squares, dragged the details from the drafting views onto the detail sheet, in the order and locations I wanted, and saved the whole thing as an updated template file. That way, when I wish to call out a detail, I can use the Callout: Reference View to call out that particular detail. It works great, and if I only need a few details on this particular project (instead of a full detail sheet) I delete the detail sheet on this project, and drag the details from the drafting views onto the sheets where I want them. Hope this helps. JOHN
