Quick Guide


Introducing: Revit Application Version Management

With AVAIL’s latest releases of AVAIL Desktop (4.6) and AVAIL for Revit (5.2) comes the opportunity for customers to preview AVAIL’s newest feature: Revit Application Version Management.  

Once a painful, manual process, Revit application versioning is now automatic. AVAIL Publishers – often BIM managers at a firm — are able to batch upgrade Revit files to new Revit versions by simply uploading the files to an AVAIL Host-in-Cloud Channel. AVAIL will automatically convert the files to newer versions from Revit 2021 through Revit 2025.

For users (designers) in the company’s account, the experience is then seamless. They can search, select, and utilize Revit content, regardless of what Revit version they are working in.


Saving AEC firms valuable time

As a company focused on creating content management system (CMS) solutions for the global architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry, we knew this process of versioning content was a pain-point for our Revit-using customer base. 

A core goal of ours is to develop systems that save our customers time, and that was the motivation that led us to build the ability to automatically version-up Revit content into our AVAIL for Revit suite of capabilities. 

This new feature saves time for both the publishers and users. BIM managers no longer have to block off their schedules and lock themselves away when a firm’s library needs updating. Publishers only have to create a Revit Family once, drop it in the AVAIL Host-in-Cloud Channel to version, and share that object out to their team. 

Likewise, designers no longer have to waste time sifting through the various versioned files of that Family to find the one they need. All end-users have to do is grab that seemingly singular object from the AVAIL platform and drag and drop it into their Revit session. The system intelligently uses the correct version for each user. 

Now, both BIM managers and designers are free to focus on more creative, meaningful tasks.
