The Revizto Export Scheduler does a great job at automating export tasks from Revit and Navisworks direct into Revizto.

But what if you want to decommission a machine that is doing repetitive export tasks? And move those export tasks to another machine?

Overview
You just need to copy the .db files from the Source Machine to the Target Machine.

Note: The Target Machine will need to have an almost identical environment as the Source, especially in terms of file locations and BIM360 cache folder locations.

Here is how you might do it…

Step by step

On The Source Machine (the one with current Revizto Scheduler jobs)

  1. Confirm that a given scheduled task runs successfully by using the Run button

  2. Revizto Scheduled Tasks are stored inside the Revizto Working Folder, .db file. So we need to determine which folder to work in…
  3. To determine which Revizto Project is being scheduled, look at the name to the right of the -> in the list. In the case below, the Revizto Project Name is “Scheduler_Connection_Status”

  4. Identify the Revizto Project ID + location folder of that particular project (from Revizto Viewer, Project Open, hold mouse over the project thumbnail to see the ID)

  5. In the above image, the project ID has been identified as a ‘60557’, and location folder is R:\Revizto\60557. Now, navigate to the Revizto Working Folder (location can be found in Revizto Preferences – General). Inside the Revizto Working Folder, look for the relevant project folder:

     

  6. For safety – close, Revizto and forcibly close the background services “ReviztoService.exe” and “ReviztoServiceGUI.exe”

  7. Navigate into this folder – there is a .db file in there. Copy it somewhere safe.

  8. Proceed with next set of steps on the Target Machine…

On the Target Machine

  1. Open the relevant Revizto project on the Target machine. Ensure the model is downloaded correctly (this creates the local cache folder). Now, close Revizto.
  2. For BIM 360 tasks, ensure you have at least opened each model once on the Target machine (to create the cache)
  3. Using steps 4 to 7 in the section above, close Revizto services, and find and backup the .db file somewhere safe
  4. Now, copy and paste the .db file from the Source machine into the Target project folder
  5. Launch the Revizto Export Scheduler from the desktop
  6. Confirm the job has been imported

  7. Test running the Scheduled Task on the Target Machine

If you experience an error like this, it is probably because your username is different on the new machine:

I fixed this by creating a dummy folder structure, and then adding the symbolic link. Keep in mind that different versions of Revit have different cache folder locations…

If this still doesn’t work for you, you might consider copying the entire Revizto Working Folder from one machine to another.

When Revizto Stamps were first released, I didn’t fully understand how powerful they would become – but now, Stamps are probably the most widely used method of issue creation in the entire Revizto ecosystem. A Stamp is basically an “Issue Template”.  If you have a particular type of issue or problem or question that regularly comes up on your projects, you create a Stamp so that you don’t have to keep entering the same data over and over again. These stamps can be pre-tagged, prioritised, and pre-assigned, and that creates real efficiencies across your entire project team and lifecycle.

Up until now, Stamps could only be created inside the Revizto Viewer – but as of Revizto 4.11 (released today), you can now create a Stamp issue from Revit or Navisworks (or other software with the Revizto plugin).

Here’s how to do it in Revit (the workflow is similar in all platforms):

  1. Open a Revit project that is connected to a Revizto project
  2. While reviewing the model or drawings, click the New Issue button

  3. On the issue creation screen in Revizto, click the ST button (this allows you to apply the Stamp to the new issue):

  4. Select the relevant Stamp from the list:

  5. Optionally edit the pre-filled issue title to add more detail
  6. Add any desired markups with the markup tools
  7. Click Done

The above workflow can also be performed from a Revit Sheet (creating an issue on the 2D sheet that has been synced from Revit to Revizto):

If you want to adjust the Stamp pin position (for 3D issue):

  1. Go to the issue
  2. Click 3D on the far left
  3. Click Update 3D at the top

  4. Move the pin in 3D space
  5. Click Done

The above workflow to move a pin position is similar for 2D issues, but you should click on the Markup icon on the far left, and then click Edit Markup at the top of screen.

 

This new feature will further increase the already widespread use of Revizto Stamps, and in turn improve the consistency of data applied to issues… regardless of what platform you are using to review or markup your designs!

 

Also in this new version is enhanced Procore integration, and Vectorworks 2020 support. Full release notes copied below…

Revizto 4.11 Release Notes

Version : 4.11.52232 (17 October 2019)
 
Revizto app

– Direct integration with Procore RFI module. Ability to elevate Revizto issues to new or existing RFIs. Once the issue is elevated, its status will be locked – it will reflect the status of the RFI. All RFI status changes will be reflected in Revizto issue.
Important note: the integration with Coordination Issues module of Procore has been discontinued in favour of direct RFI integration.
– Ability to create stamps from plugins (Revit, Navisworks, etc). There is a new stamp button on the issue creation screen that allows converting issue to stamp upon creation.
– Enhancements for saved issue filters: ability to search by name and apply alphanumeric ordering.
– Clearing the cache for Revizto projects now has several options. For example, it now allows removing all project files to save space on the hard drive, while keeping export settings.
– Increased the character limit to 100 characters for stamp category names.

Revizto plugins

– Vectorworks 2020 support.
– Rhino 6 support.

All Revizto products

– Stability improvements and bug fixes.

Following the integration of Revizto with Procore and Box, starting today you can also connect Revizto to BIM 360 Docs and BIM 360 Team. This will allow you to browse BIM 360 hosted files within Revizto, attach them to issues, and convert hosted PDFs to sheets that you can easily markup.

Download it from here

This opens up some exciting possibilities:

  • Upload PDFs from your project into BIM 360 Docs, and then automatically sync and convert those sheets to Revizto 2D sheets. You can then markup these sheets with the Revizto issue tracker. You could even use the extremely fast ‘viewport sync’ from the Revizto Revit addin to actually enable those PDFs for 2D to 3D overlay. This potentially provides a massive performance enhancement to the existing Revizto to Revit sheet export process.
  • Store commissioning documents, specifications, and other project documents on BIM360, and then attach those live documents to issues in the Issue Tracker
  • Take the BIM 360 Docs offline to your device using Revizto, including on our iPad app. In this way, you can take the 3D model, drawings, and Documents offline to the device and take them onsite easily. All interactions with the issue tracker will ‘sync’ when an internet connection becomes available.

How Do You Enable the Revizto BIM 360 Docs Integration?

Prerequisites:

  • you should be a BIM 360 Account Admin to install the Revizto BIM 360 app
  • if you wish to install this integration for BIM 360 Docs / Document Management, you must have access to the Apps tab in BIM 360 Account Admin. From Autodesk website:
    Note: If you are on an enterprise plan and the Apps or Custom Integration features are not enabled, send an email to bim360appsactivations@autodesk.com to request access. You can also contact support for further help and information.
  1. Install the new version of Revizto (4.10)
  2. Login to BIM360 in your browser to confirm you are a BIM 360 Account Admin
  3. Install Revizto BIM 360 app here – go to Apps tab
    > Select Revizto> Click Add to BIM 360

    > Authorise

    > The app should now be Active

  4. Open Revizto and login to Revizto if necessary

Hi Luke,

I have enabled your Developer Account; you’re all set!
– you should now see the APPs & Custom Integrations tabs in BIM 360 Account Admin.

Would you mind sharing which integration is of interest? Or perhaps you’re planning to build a new custom integration?
– It’s helpful for us to know what folks are trying to build/solve.
– You can explore our existing partner integrations here, or in the APPs tab.

What technology stack should you use when managing and collaborating on a significant and complicated design-build infrastructure project?

Stantec recently shared their workflow on their Ideas website – and it has Revizto right in the middle of it.

Here are a few quotes to get you started:

“The team decided to implement Revizto early in the design phase. It’s an easy-to-use, secure, file-neutral, cloud-based, model-review solution. Model files were published to Revizto, unattended, every night. Each day, the design-build team and Sound Transit could visualize the current design in all areas of the facility. We saw a vast improvement in collaboration and engagement because the model was accessible to anyone, from anywhere, at any time.

Revizto’s issue tracker became a one-stop shop for model-issue and clash management. Typically, a team might use Revitzo to coordinate a single building model. But our team took that a step further by using it for the entire site—multiple buildings, the site, the tracks, and the underground utilities.

This is a process we intend to implement across our suite of transit projects going forward, changing the way we do work by building it into our mindset from the start. By using Revitzo at the very early stages of design, we were able to facilitate a level of teamwork and collaboration that was instrumental in helping us to meet deadlines, stay on track, and stay in lock-step as a project team.

the ability to visualize and identify issues early and across the entire facility saves thousands of dollars in change orders and construction delays.”

It is extremely easy to reduce the size of a point cloud dataset using Recap. “Decimation” is the process of discarding points from the data to improve performance and reduce disk usage.

With the release of point cloud support in Revizto, you can now bring a point cloud into the Revizto platform in a number of ways:

  • Export from Navisworks
  • Export from Revit
  • Import points directly in RCP or RCS format

Once the reality capture model has been added to Revizto, you sync it to the cloud. From there, you can download and view the point cloud on your iPad, and of course you can start creating issues that relate to the captured condition on site. You can even overlay 2D drawings onto the reality capture data.

The decimation process is very easy :

  1. Open your Recap file (add scans and index first if necessary)
  2. Click Export
  3. Give your file a name

  4. Click the settings button
  5. Move the slider to adjust your point decimation – you might use around 50mm decimation for a lot of site applications.

  6. Save the file

There are other considerations, such as:

  • How can you set up coordinate systems to work with Revit, Navisworks and Revizto?

These will be considered in more detail in another post.

You may have noticed that Revizto notifications now provide a direct link to Open that issue in Revizto. This special hyperlink will prompt to open Revizto, and it will jump to the correct issue in the Issue Tracker.

The special link is made of a few parts, notice the project number and issue ID in bold below:

https://api.sydney.revizto.com/v4/region/redirect?url=revizto%3A//viewer/50789/issue_tracker/44

Using the predictable syntax above, you can use your own Revizto regional server, project number and issue ID to create these hyperlinks yourself, either in Excel or programmatically.

You can leverage this mini-api in a number of ways:

  • you can paste these links into the Revizto Issue Tracker to allow you to jump between issues in Revizto
  • paste the links into Word or Excel or other emails as part of a larger report or conversation
  • inject these links into another BIM platform such as a Revit URL field, so that you can jump from a specific item in Revit to the related Revizto issue
  • use these special links in a project portal or project management system

This is just the beginning for a new era of connectedness between the Revizto Issue Tracker and other platforms… watch this space!

Revizto continues to improve its very powerful web Dashboard features. The web Dashboard gives a live view of issues for your team, and can be completely customised to give the most focused overview of your current project Status.

To create a web Dashboard and Group by Tag, just follow these easy steps:

      1. Open https://ws.revizto.com and access the Project you want to work on
      2. Click on Dashboard
      3. Click “Add New Dashboard”
      4. In the Dashboard view, click “Add New Chart”
      5. Customise the chart to include only certain tags, and enable the Grouping by Tags function. Below is an example:

In the above example, you can see how I included only the high level tags that are used (on this project) to keep track of the construction zone of specific issues. Then, the Grouping function slices those issues and gives us quick insight into the Zones requiring immediate action by the project management team.

I’m sure you can see how easy it is to setup powerful and focused dashboards to successfully manage your BIM and Construction team with these new web features in Revizto.

Here are the other currently supported Grouping categories in Revizto:

Models change rapidly at various stages of the project, and it can be useful to review model status between different revisions of the models.  What changed? Why?

There are a number of Model Compare tools out there, Navisworks has one built-in and there are addins for Revit. But what if you just want a quick visual check?

Here is one method using Revizto…

Using Two Instances of Revizto and the Issue Tracker to Compare Models

  1. Open two instances of Revizto and put them side by side on your screen (large monitor will help)
  2. On one of the instances, go to Project -> Revisions and open a previous version of your model

  3. You can now navigate between two different versions in these two instances
  4. The issue tracker data is always up to date, so you can use the Issue Tracker to co-locate yourself in each file and check the differences. Just click on the same issue in the Issue Tracker, and then click on 3D to visually compare the models. Obviously, you can also enter data and snapshots into the Issue Tracker as per usual, perhaps to comment on why a particular model changed between versions.

Another Idea…

Essentially, this idea was to launch two instances of Revizto and use the Camera Share tool to navigate the same model between them.  It was a bit more involved, and it requires you to have access to two different login accounts for Revizto, and two different login accounts for the current machine, and Revizto is installed ‘For Everybody’.

  1. Ensure you have psexec available
  2. Make a CMD with this text:
     psexec -u OtherWindowsUsername -p OtherWindowsUserPassword -d -i "C:\Program Files\Vizerra LLC\Revizto4\Viewer\Revizto.exe" /language ENU

    (needless to say that you should be careful to protect the password above)

  3. Open Revizto normally and login
  4. Run this CMD file, and in the new instance of Revizto you can login to a different Revizto account
  5. Open the same Revizto project in each
  6. You can now use the Camera Share tool to ‘drive’ both instances simultaneously. Pretty cool!
  7. In one of the instances, open a previous Revision of the model
  8. *This is where the idea fell down, as Camera Share no longer offered to share camera between two different versions of the model :)*  Evidently, it won’t let you navigate non-similar models at the same time.
