Providing a Revit Project file to a Client

As mentioned in our post “Exporting to CAD for Consultants like Engineers”, this post is about ARC’s suggested way to provide a Revit file to someone, if you must.

Firstly – Avoid It.

This is better, because however you do it, you’ll inevitably pass on some IP of ARC and your own.  Our agreements discourage passing it on, anyway.

Second – try to only transfer DWG versions.  Refer to a later blog post.

But, there could be a situation that requires it, eg, you may be asking someone to further develop a model.  If you pass on the original file to others, we require they also be an ARC user.

Here is our short list of how we’d do it –

The point of the exercise is to only transfer the ‘model’.

Hope this helps.

Happy Reviting and ARC use!
