Chapter 16. Phases

When it comes to phasing, it is very difficult to keep track of what part will remain and what part will be demolished. In traditional file-based CAD systems, it is a logistics and training nightmare to keep things working smoothly. Fortunately, Revit has phasing tools specifically for this purpose.
