Revit Content Libraries Missing? Here’s How to Fix It.
If you are having difficulty creating a deployment only of your Revit install with your Building Design Suite, it is likely due to a known issue with the Revit Content Libraries. You may notice that some files fail to copy correctly when the deployment is built, and prevents Libraries from being installed. These are the files you should watch for: the master.rvt.xml and master.xsd.
Here is a solution to fix this issue: After creating your deployment, I recommend copying the files from the install folder where you exacted the files (\Content\Revit Folder) to the Deployment location where you created the image (\Img\Content\Revit) as seen below.
For more information about this issue, please refer to this Autodesk knowledge-based article:

With the 2017 release of Revit, the vertical offerings (Architecture, MEP and Structure) have been consolidated into just Revit (sometimes called “one-box”). This left some Revit users wondering what this meant for them. The answer is simple: Revit now contains the capabilities of all three verticals in one application. So, if you were previously using one of the Revit vertical offerings, you can now do everything you could do before and more!
Many people think Dynamo isn’t for them based on the notion that it’s only useful for complex geometry or twisting towers. Lacking programming knowledge scares some others away. The reality, however, is that this powerful Revit add-on can be useful for anyone and everyone who uses Revit.

Do you share design files with non-Autodesk users who need to review your design for approval or buy-in? Doug Benoit shares how to decide which Autodesk viewer to use depending on what software you’re using.
If your firm is transitioning from AutoCAD to Revit, but still has a library full of old AutoCAD Details, you can rest assured. There are several ways to convert your AutoCAD Details into your Revit projects. Learn 4 simple steps from Jack Trexler:
Adopting BIM isn’t just about taking the information from blueprints (and anything that might be stapled to them) and putting them on a computer. BIM allows for cross-site and cross-team collaboration and real-time updates to ALL your project documentation. Here are 3 collaboration trends happening in the building and construction industry to keep an eye on this year.
Over the last few weeks, Autodesk has released a few updates, most notably AutoCAD 2019 Update 1 (Service Pack 1). They’ve also announced the retirement of Buzzsaw and A360 Desktop Sync. Read on for all the updates this month.
