RTV Drawing Manager for Autodesk Revit is a tool designed to manage and streamline workflows, particularly when working with multiple Revit files in a project. This can save significant amounts of time and reduce manual work in various aspects of a project. Here are some ways in which RTV Drawing Manager can save you time:
Centralized Management: The Drawing Manager offers a consolidated interface where you can see, review, and manage all your drawings from various Revit files. Instead of opening each file individually, you can streamline actions across multiple files.
Batch Printing: With RTV Drawing Manager, you can batch print sets of drawings from multiple Revit files. This reduces the need to open each file and print them individually.
Automated Sheet Numbering: Instead of manually renumbering sheets, RTV Drawing Manager can automatically renumber sheets for you based on criteria you set. This is especially useful for larger projects with many sheets.
Revision Management: The tool helps in automating and tracking revisions across multiple drawings. This means no more manually tracking which drawings have been revised or needing to cross-check various revision numbers across files.
Document Transmittal: RTV Drawing Manager can automatically generate document transmittals, saving you the time of creating these manually.
Sheet Issue Records: The tool can create and manage a record of sheets that have been issued. This is essential for tracking and project management.
Sheet and Project Data Synchronization: Instead of manually updating sheet or project data across multiple files, RTV Drawing Manager can synchronize this data for you.
Automatic Naming and Exporting: RTV Drawing Manager can automate the naming and exporting of files, which can be a massive time-saver when dealing with numerous files or versions.
Issue and Mark-up Management: The Drawing Manager also provides tools for issue and mark-up management, centralizing the feedback and corrections process, and ensuring you don’t overlook any notes or changes.
Template Management: For those frequently starting new projects or needing consistent sheet setups, RTV Drawing Manager provides template management. This ensures that every project starts with the same settings, sheets, and setups, reducing the manual setup time for each new project.
User-friendly Interface: Its intuitive interface reduces the learning curve and makes it easy for users to access and utilize its features.
Integration with Revit: Being directly integrated with Revit means there’s no need for complex export or import processes. This tight integration ensures consistency and efficiency.
In essence, RTV Drawing Manager takes many of the manual, time-consuming tasks related to managing multiple drawings in Revit and automates or streamlines them. The cumulative time savings across a project can be significant, allowing teams to focus more on design and problem-solving rather than administrative tasks.
