Sometimes you will want to duplicate a Revizto project, perhaps for archive or testing purposes, or to re-share it with a new team. This post shows you how to do it quickly and properly.

Here’s how:

  1. Start Revizto
  2. Load Full Cache by clicking Edit, then the yellow hamburger:
  3. Double-click to Open the Project
  4. Click Project and Save As
  5. Give it a new name
  6. If you want it to be a cloud project, you now need to Sync it to the cloud now. Currently it is just stored on your machine and the issue ids will not have populated. Just press Share, and then hit the Upload button at the bottom of that screen

That’s it, you now have a full copy of all 2D, 3D and issue information from the original Revizto project. You will have to invite new users to this project if you want them to be able to collaborate. Your existing project and users will be unaffected.

If you are working on a live, shared, cloud Revizto project, you may wonder how to easily ‘replace’ the entire current model with a fresh version.

Note 1: if you Overwrite model content in Revizto, the Issue Tracker is not affected: Issue list, conversation history and related details are retained.

Here is one way to update the model by replacing with a fresh export:

  1. Export to Revizto
  2. Use ‘Choose Project’ and
  3. Use Overwrite setting
  4. Press OK and confirm
  5. Open In Revizto Editor, Sync to Cloud

Note 2: remember you can revert to a previous version with the Cloud Revisions tool

To Merge Projects (add new Models to an existing Cloud model):

  1. Export new data to a New Project
  2. Open in Revizto Editor
  3. Optimize if you would like to…
  4. Project – Save (this is still a Local model)
  5. Open the Cloud model
  6. Merge Models with the Cloud project by doing this:
    1. Project – Merge
    2. Add Scene
    3. Select the exported scene
    4. Choose appropriate position (such as Origin to Origin)
  7. Save and Sync to Cloud
