Now that Revit 2015 has been published, many of our customers are starting to do their early prep work in advance of their official migration to Autodesk Revit 2015. In light of this work, here are a few simple spring cleaning tips for your consideration. Before You Migrate to Revit 2015... Family Audits
  1. Open your office standard family (.RFA) files created in the past one year.
  2. Launch Ideate Explorer for Revit.
  3. Review all contents and delete anything that surprises you.*
  4. Purge and then repeat to ensure nested content has been removed.
Template Audits
  1. Open your office standard template (.RTE) files.
  2. Launch Ideate Explorer for Revit.
  3. Review all contents and delete anything that surprises you.*
  4. Purge and then repeat to ensure nested content has been removed.

If you don't have time to review all your new content (hah!) then at least be sure to audit your templates,  Titleblock, and Annotation families. These often have non-standard lines and sometimes an import or unexpected raster image may sneak in. *Use Ideate Explorer's built-in audit filter to find the most common culprits.
