“Smart people learn from their mistakes. But the real sharp ones learn from the mistakes of others.”

― Brandon Mull, Fablehaven

Every single element created on Revit has an author/creator. When you are looking at the model created on Revit you do not see who did what - good for some.

Here comes the Dynamo script - every creator/user will have colour assigned. You will be able to see who did what, how many elements created, the most common mistakes made. You can use this to shame your team, to come up with all sorts of original punishment methods - but this is not the reason why we created the script.

Team leaders - use the script to train your team, analyse the most common struggles, see how fast people are working - on what elements are they spending the longest amount of time. This is your new quality assurance tool.

There is not a single university that prepares a Golden Standard Revitists - not yet. Please correct me if I am wrong. Majority have been spending countless hours doing self-learning, being trained by more senior staff members, lying about their skills during the recruitment process. So the struggle is real - you have a team of Revitists and you are very lucky if there are at least a couple of highly experienced ones. MAKING MISTAKES IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE LEARNING PROCESS; THE PROBLEM IS HOW WE LOOK AT OUR MISTAKES.
