Content Management-Sync Parameters

Not only will Fetch retrieve the most recent version of a model when a new family is placed, but currently placed families can be updated when our content creation team publishes a new version. Updates can include updates to geometry, pricing formulas, lead times, product codes, and other data attached to models.

Sync Triggers

Keeping your models up to date is important to us. The content creation team is constantly auditing and updating our models to include the most recent information available. As such, the models in our database are designed to sync every time a new family is inserted. This ensures that the user always receives the most up-to-date data to make the most informed decisions you can make.

Sync Types

Within the Fetch tab on the Revit ribbon, a drop-down menu allows for two different sync types.

  • • Names and Parameters: The most popular sync type, Names and Parameters will sync all aspects of the model to the version from the cloud. This option will sync parameters, formulas, as well as family and type names.
  • • Parameters Only: Just as the name suggests, Parameters Only will only sync parameters and formulas; leaving in-tact any custom types made by the user.
