How are you setting up your hubs?

General question for the public and looking to generate some good conversations.

How are you setting up your hubs and workspaces? Do you have a main consumption and a testing location for workflows?

How are you breaking up the workspaces in those hubs? By discipline? Department?(Healthcare, Education, Commercial, etc).

Hello everyone,

As the caretaker of the Orkrestra, I’ve come across an effective approach to improve our working spaces and facilitate quick access to relevant information. The key is organizing our materials and resources by categories. Let me explain further:

For instance, I categorize our files into the following sections:

  1. Sheets
  2. Revisions
  3. Framing
  4. Columns
  5. Forces
  6. General

This categorization method allows us to easily locate and retrieve the specific information we need. Additionally, I have implemented a “sandbox” folder where I conduct testing. Once I am satisfied with the results, I transfer the files to one of the aforementioned folders for deployment.

In my experience, this categorization system works well for our structural projects. By grouping our elements/scripts based on model elements or categories, we create a versatile resource that can be utilized across various project types and sectors.


Very interesting, I like it. What does your testing procedure look like before making workflows available for public consumption and is it just yourself building workflows?

“Caretaker of the Orkestra” do you mean the Conduktor?
Jokes aside, we are so far categorizing our methods into discipline so we have some processes specific to our structural team and a separate toolbar for beta testers on the architecture side. Optimistically, one day we’ll have a toolbar deployed to all Revit users but for now just those two categories is plenty. Once we have a string of processes that follow in sequence, those will live in a smaller portion of the toolbar in a vertical column.
