In this article, we are going to take you through what Design Options are, when would you use them.
The Design Options provides you with the flexibility of choosing several alternatives for your design. As a designer, you need to come up with multiple design ideas, so that you can select the best option that suits the functional, aesthetical, and economical requirement of your project. Therefore, you need to develop and evaluate several design options and then execute the best possible design option for your project.
The majority of your project will be fixed- this is what will constitute the “Main Model” with regards Design Options. All Revit elements that are designated as being in the Main Model will be common to all Options. This is a very important concept and one that you need to fully understand. If there are certain parts of your scheme that will vary (depending on which Option you are exploring), you need to move them out of the “Main Model” and into an “Option”.
