This blog follows on from the earlier “Lockdown with Autodesk BIM 360 Design” blogs where we covered the following:

When writing an earlier blog, I became aware that my team’s model file was not being added to the requisite document set on sharing and consuming the package. This raised the question: how does one manage document sets for Revit model files?

Consider the model file as it exists in the team folder. We can add it to a document set at any time. Click on the radio control on the right next to the file name to drop down the menu and then select “Edit set assignment”.

One may remove the 3d model from a set, create a new set to add it to, or assign it to an existing set.

This results in the set being assigned to the one model file that I selected.

When a new set is created for the team, the 3d models are selected

I share the package.

When I share the package, I add its contents to the document set as well.

I update the package.

I then consume the package as the structural team.

Looking at the team folder, it is clear that the document set was not applied retrospectively from the package share to the team folder.

Neither is the document set applied to the consumed folder

Interestingly, when the sets are viewed, the documents show up as being applied to the sets. This is clearly a result of the package sharing operation.
