    Implementing 2014

    With the "announcement" of the Autodesk 2014 product line and suites, when do you think the use of 2014 will be implemented in your office?

    As an MEP firm, we have to wait for the Architects to decide when they are going to use it. Because of lingering projects, not everyone in the office has even started using 2013. Our first 2013 project wasnt started until late January when I finally finished our 2013 template. Currently all new projects are being started in 2013, but we have about a 50/50 mix of 2012 and 2013 projects.

    Do you see just skipping 2013 and going straight into 2014? Or will it be late 2013 or early 2014 when it finally gets implemented?

    We have been using 2013 for a while now, so obviously we are not skipping... Spoke to our BIM Manager this morning and he wants to test it on a small project with limited users for a few months before we roll out companywide.... So I'll probably be using it about a month or so after its released....

    We will be rolling out exactly one week after RTM ships.

    Once our IT and I can sit down and customize the deployment (with addins, ini modification and such), we'll get it installed company-wide, but we wont use it until an Architect says they are using it. I will, however, be playing with it as soon as it gets installed. Hopefully before the company-wide deployment.

    I'm a one man shop, so the day I get it is the day I install it (or when the IT guy gets around to it ). All or nothing! I ain't scared...

    Yep. The one week is for me to make all 6 offices deployments, and customizations, and setup our networked addins, and get the PR scripts written for the uninstalls and reinstalls. Then its GO TIME.

    Awesome! Maybe you can show our IT guy a thing or two (shh) or I can pick your brain about the deployment/customization. I know the other guy who helped him last year screwed some stuff up for 2013.

    Aaron, you uninstall all previous (well, the previous) versions first?

    For every software OTHER than Revit, yes. This year, im uninstalling everything, than reinstalling 2012 and 2013, and then all new 2014, for some other unrelated reasons...

    I'll install it the day of release but we use a third party sheet/revision manager (from RTV Tools) so I need to wait until they get their new release out before I can use it in production.

    I always keep the previous release installed alongside the new one.
