Revisions are an inevitable part of precast projects. Read here how to create, apply and edit revisions in IMPACT Revit projects. 

Create Revision list

Document the project changes in a revision list. Go to Revit -> View -> Revisions in order to find the Revisions function in Revit. Write down the date, description and any additional information to the revision, that you want to add. Select Per Sheet in the Numbering settings, as shown in the picture below.  

Notice, that this is a list, showing revisions for the whole Revit model.  Later on, the user is able to choose a revision from the list, that needs to be applied to the element shop drawing sheet.

Apply Revision

Once the revision list is created, you are able to apply revisions on the shop drawing sheets. 

Open the shop drawing sheet properties and find Revisions on Sheet. See the picture below.

Show revisions in Project Manager

In order to show sheet revisions in IMPACT Project Manager, the Shop Drawing and the IMPACT project must be updated.

Follow these two steps: 

  • 1. Update the shop drawing via Update Shop Drawing command in Revit.

Notice, that in version 15.0.018 and higher, the user has a possibility to preserve reinforcement annotations, spot elevations and dimensions.
