Thanks for giving UNIFI a try. To help you start more efficiently organizing, accessing and managing your BIM content, we’ve put together a quick start guide to help you get you, well, get started!
1. UPLOAD CONTENT
UNIFI comes with two empty libraries already set up and just waiting for you to upload your content. Feel free to upload your existing content to these pre-made libraries or create your own on the LIBRARY MANAGEMENT screen.
Below, we show you how to navigate to the Upload screen and then drag & drop a folder of content/.rfas directly into UNIFI:
Looking to upload your system families and details as well? No problem! UNIFI is compatible with multiple Revit element types:
2. ADD USERS
UNIFI has three user “Roles” for various security and workflow purposes. Company Administrator, Library Administrator, and User.
|User||Used for majority of design staff to supply access to specific libraries of content|
|Library Administrator||Ideal for regional BIM managers or office BIM managers who are responsible for managing content within specific libraries, but do not need full firm wide library access rights|
|Company Administrator||We recommend that a small group of users are in this role|
Here’s how to add users:
3. SEARCH & INSERT CONTENT
Now that your content has been uploaded and your users are all set up, it’s time to start designing with your team! You can search for content, browse content within libraries, and insert directly into your Revit design.
Navigate to the SEARCH screen within UNIFI to quickly find content and insert into Revit.
We also have a video that shows how much more quickly UNIFI is than traditional methods. Here’s a link to a video.
