    Specifying Revit Content Article

    I am wondering if anyone had a chance to read the latest series of Axomic's content management blog posts by Mario Guttman from CASE.

    There are some great ideas and things to consider when developing families and content for an office.

    Stick sets were in full effect at the first arch office I worked at ... Now, not so much.

    As of late, I've been moving away from incorporating 2D symbolics to represent 3D objects. They are what they are ... (With a few exceptions, outlets, etc). It's just one more thing to manage, for what benefit? With that said, I'm diligent about keeping the 3d representation as clean as possible. I'm not really sure about overall performance benefits. I'll take a minor hit in performance for the bonus of not dealing with another nested component and associating parameters.

    Thoughts? More comments about Mario's post (which I found awesome)

    We have quite a few here. They are older than dirt but for some reason they don't get thrown out

    are we really talking about "stick sets". Stick sets are these although these fancy smancy aluminum clamps weren't available when I originally dealt with stick sets. We used to pcs of wood, 1/4" x 1 1/2" x LAR on each side of the dwgs held together with two MS and wing nuts. Then they were stacked in a plywood stepped cabinet built especially for the purpose. I'd be really surprised if there were any of those left around, took up way to much space. Which was the advantage of the aluminum clamps, they could be set in a wall mounted rack and be angled against the wall. I'd also be surprised if there are many of those around any more...Does anyone still archive drawings in hard copy??

    I was wrong - we used to have a couple racks but they were cleaned out a while back and I forgot about it The racks are probably in the basement though... We do still have a flat file, although I don't think it has been used in a couple years.
