When installing the new Revit 2021 currently, it downloads the 2020 platform Templates and Families. Once you have finished installing the software you will need the 2021 versions. They are there but you just need to know how to locate them. This blog will show you how to ensure you get the UK based content.
So, you’ve downloaded Revit 2021 successfully. Go to the ‘Insert Tab’ (A), Load from Library Panel and select ‘Get Autodesk Content’ (B).
Once selected, it takes you to your web browser and is set to Revit-2020-content.
Select ‘2020’ in your browser and change to ‘2021’ and hit enter on your keyboard.
