    Phasing

    When sharing phases models with consultants which of the phase settings is it important to match? Phase name, Phase Filter name, and/or Graphic Overrides? I thought it was Phase and Phase Filter names but someone in the office is saying itĺs Phase Filters and Graphic Overrides...

    The phase name isn't too important as you can use phase mapping to associate any linked phase with any phase in your project.

    "Important" needs to be defined, before anyone can answer.

    Phase FILTERS are extremely important, since even though most people dont realize it, your views actually use your consultants Phase Filters, to show their models. So it tries to align Phase Filters with the same names, and- if they dont have any with the same names- you essentially have to set every VT's VG:RVT Link to Custom, so you can pick a Phase Filter. By Host View wont work, as By Host View really means "take the name of my phase filter, and look for that name in their file."

    Phase Name matters, but only in so much as the Phase Mapping will try to "auto align" itself. But since it DOES exist as a global dialogue, i dont care if my Phases ever align. And since Autodesk was dumb enough to use the word NEW in a Phase Name, my Phases will never align with anyone using OOTB Phase Names, as i change mine to Existing, Phase 1, and Phase 2. It causes zero problems.

    Graphic Overrides also dont matter at all (to me). I always read all this bonkers stuff about consultants having to transfer Graphical Overrides between one another's models, and ive done it exactly zero times, since i started using Revit. And all of my drawings look fine.

    He said "critical" which I thought might be too strong of a word.

    Thanks Aaron. That confirms what I thought was correct.

    Phase Filter names is most important. They need to match for By Host to apply appropriately.
    Phase names will attempt to matchup if named the same and can be manually adjusted. Helpful but not so critical. Same order assists in the process.

    Name of Graphic Overrides cannot be changed so no baring. But the link's visibility of the Graphic Override is dependent on the RVT Link's Object Style setting. The host model's overrides applies when set to By Host. The Link's apply when set to By Link.

    So you're saying that demolition, for example, done in a linked file will look the same as demolition done in the host file when set to By Host, but when set to By Link it will look like whatever the linked file has established. If the host has blue demolition and the link has red then By Host shows linked demo blue but By Link will show linked demo red... yes?

    Yep. That is correct.
