Worksets and Worksharing

The Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2014 platform enables users to design and model complex buildings and engineering systems. Usually this is a team effort, so it is important to fully understand how a Revit MEP project file can be set up in a way that allows for multiple designers and engineers to work on these systems at the same time. Unlike traditional CAD solutions that require many files to represent the design intent, the entire mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire-protection systems can be modeled in one Revit MEP file.
