With the new release of Revit 2021, I thought it was a good time to review how to upgrade a BIM 360 Design workshared Revit Project from a previous release.
I have always liked the Trim and Extend commands in Autodesk Inventor, and now AutoCAD 2021 incorporates the same simplified behavior. As you might remember in previous versions, when using the Extend or Trim command in AutoCAD, you were always prompted to select the boundaries first. Now in 2021, AutoCAD detects the boundary(s) automatically, saving the step of having to choose one or more items before selecting the actual items to Trim/Extend. Another nice change, is that the command default to a fence selection, making it ideal for selecting groups of objects.
When you are using a CAD application in the office is your server and/or network connection slow? If you answered yes, and now have to work offsite using a VPN (Virtual Private Network), you probably noticed it is even slower. To improve performance (or if you are looking for a better way to manage your files) then you might want to consider implementing Vault. What you may not know is if you are using a CAD product from Autodesk (Inventor, Acad, Acad Mech, Civil 3D etc…) your company already owns Vault Basic.
