I like this idea on the revit idea station,
I have more concerns with this than excitement.
- How would it deal with the enevitable ‘someone already owns that element’ issue which will cause continuous issues ?
- How often will I have to disable it on a low level user with low level hardware who is only on the model to print or note up a schedule or do detailing as their hardware wouldn’t have enough giddy up to run most model wide script(s) well?
- How many more hours will I have to work to make up for the backround processing happening every time I sync, open, save, ? Remember Revit ad therefore Dynamo can’t take advantage of multiple cores for most efforts, while working so that backround script would lock down the system every time it runs.
I suppose a select series of operations which require next to zero power could be run periodically on every machine, but anything I can think up would have so little impact that I don’t see the value… well other than a second, third, fourth and fifty third ‘hey jackass you forgot to sync!’ reminder. That would be nice. Then again that would likely only lead to more “cancel” clicks.
You sounds right, but if the revit team can come up with a way to solve this problems, will be great.
I agree. I think multi-core processing would be a requirement, and that’s a really big overhaul. Like gargantuan. If they give us true multi-core processing and nothing else in a release it would be awesome enough that I wouldn’t care about not getting any other new goodies to play with.
