Sync Assemble Data to Revit

Sync data from Assemble back into your model by using Assemble's Sync feature. Model information from Assemble can be synced back to Revit using one of three options. 

Sync from view: Sync only properties chosen as columns in the view (Recommended)

This option allows you to utilize a saved view in Assemble, where a limited amount of properties for a limited data set of types and instances are included. This option will not sync back properties that are not chosen as columns in the Grid, nor will sync back your selected properties of elements that are filtered out of the Grid. To learn more, click here.

Sync from view: Sync all properties for all instances and types in the view

This option allows you to utilize a saved view in Assemble, where all properties of a limited data set of types and instances are included. This option will not sync back properties of elements that are filtered out of the Grid. To learn more, click here.

Sync everything: Sync all properties for all instances and types in Assemble, regardless of any saved views (Use with caution)

This option will overwrite all existing values in the Revit model for every element's properties. To learn more, click here.

Note: Considerations have been taken in regards to the fields that can be edited in Assemble and synced to the Revit model.

1. Assemble Systems commits to preserving the integrity of the model. Therefore, properties that alter the geometry, appearance, or location of the model element cannot be altered. 

2. Fields that are write-restricted in Revit, such as Assembly Description or OmniClass Number, are not available for edit within Assemble as they are restricted for edit in Revit.

a) Assembly Descriptions can be edited in the UniformatClassifications.txt file opened by the Revit application. The file can be found in your C:\Users\[your computer name]\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Revit\Autodesk Revit [version] folder location.

b) OmniClass Numbers and OmniClass Titles can be edited in the OmniClassTaxonomy.txt file opened by the Revit application. The file can be found in your C:\Users\[your computer name]\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Revit\Autodesk Revit [version] folder location.

3. To learn more about Editing Model Data and which properties can be synced, click here.

4. When syncing back custom parameters that were published from a previous version of your model, be sure those custom parameters also exist in the model you are currently syncing to. Assemble does not create custom parameters; the parameter MUST exist in your model for the data to be transferred. 

5. Models that have been merged in Assemble using the merge publishing option will have limited sync capabilities. Changes made to objects matching an Element ID in the host model can be synced back to the host model. To sync back changes made to objects from linked models, you will need to open each linked model as a host model.
