Nice idea from bim42:
Each trade model contain a limited amount of worksets, each draftsman working on his own linked model, so I was able to create the same worksets in my compiled model.
These worksets can now be used to create filters containing every element of the specified trade.

The Building Coder has put together a very advanced post that essentially demonstrates that the Revit API can sample an external, continuously changing graphical ‘feed’, and then display this inside Revit itself. Cool!
Now, I challenge someone to grab the live feed from a webcam looking out a real-life window, and then show me it presenting itself through a Revit Window family 🙂
Here is RevitWebcam2012_3_final_cleanup.zip containing the cleaned up code with all obsolete API usage removed.
Here is a snapshot of RevitWebcam up and running in Revit 2012:

While you wait for the recording to be published by Autodesk University, grab our presentation, handout and the dataset which includes numerous examples of entourage, analysis, annotation, site and other content as well as hours of fun deconstructing the settings to work them into your office’s best practices. Enjoy and let me know what you think…

Revit Presentation Graphics That�”POP” – Jason Grant’s Blog – Adaptive Practice by Jason Grant
Increases performance for GeForce 400 Series and 500 Series GPUs in several PC games…
Hopefully (but not definitely) this means it may improve graphic performance in Revit.

quote “I have been asked by a few customers if Revit will cache textures in graphics RAM just like a game system might? … I am happy to say the answer is yes – Revit will fully use this RAM and the graphics team is continually looking to make improvements in memory management.”
From Erik at Inside the Factory: Revit and your Graphics Card
A great list showing the Visibility/Graphics priority, thanks to Revit Fix. From most powerful to least powerful:
- Line Work Tool
- Override graphics in view by elements
- View Depth -Beyond system line type (plan views only)
- Phasing graphic overrides
- Advanced model graphics – silhouette edges.
- Visibility / Graphic overrides – Halftone
- Visibility / Graphic overrides – Override host layers (Cut line styles)
- Visibility / Graphic overrides – (projection & cut lines)
- Project object styles
