Interference Checking in Revit
Here you can select categories within the current project or items from linked files.
Unfortunately you cannot compare categories between linked files. But you can select multiple categories.
For example… you can select structural columns in the project and run check against multiple categories such as Mechanical Ducts, Plumbing fixtures and Casework.
A report will be generated listing any “ Interference's”.
You can use the show button to “show” you where the interference is by selecting the item in the report.
You can export this as a html file to share with your consultants and you can also refer back and see the last report anytime.
This is an easy to use tool on simpler projects, if your working on a more complicated project your probably going to want to look into something like Navisworks Manage which has more in depth capabilities for doing Clash Detection.
A great tool...
