Updating or Merging the Model Content in a Revizto Cloud Project

If you are working on a live, shared, cloud Revizto project, you may wonder how to easily 'replace' the entire current model with a fresh version.

Note 1: if you Overwrite model content in Revizto, the Issue Tracker is not affected: Issue list, conversation history and related details are retained.

Here is one way to update the model by replacing with a fresh export:
  1. Export to Revizto
  2. Use 'Choose Project' and
  3. Use Overwrite setting
  4. Press OK and confirm
  5. Open In Revizto Editor, Sync to Cloud

Note 2: remember you can revert to a previous version with the Cloud Revisions tool

To Merge Projects (add new Models to an existing Cloud model):
  1. Export new data to a New Project 
  2. Open in Revizto Editor
  3. Optimize if you would like to... 
  4. Project - Save (this is still a Local model)
  5. Open the Cloud model
  6. Merge Models with the Cloud project by doing this:
    1. Project - Merge
    2. Add Scene
    3. Select the exported scene
    4. Choose appropriate position (such as Origin to Origin)
  7. Save and Sync to Cloud





  1. This is helpful. A student asked this the other day. We do Revit Training and I like passing this information on to our students.

  2. When working with a workshared model, does the project file name matter when exporting? Is it possible to have different people on a project replace the model from their local files?

    1. In the export dialog, you choose which project data to overwrite, so it doesn't matter if it is workshared or local / central. However, the user doing the export needs to have Edit rights as a collaborator on that Revizto project.
