Installing the Application #

To get started with Content Studio, begin by downloading and installing the application.

Launch the app for the first time, and when prompted click ‘New Company Account’

Input your name and company email address (the email ‘@domain’ is important if you are setting it up for a company – so best to use your company email). More on this later…

Yes No

Create an account #

Launch the app for the first time, and when prompted click ‘New Company Account’

Input your name and company email address (the email ‘@domain’ is important if you are setting it up for a company – so best to use your company email). More on this later…

Create a meaningful name that your team will recognise for your account such as:

  • MyCompanyDesignInc – Good!
  • MCD – Good!
  • MyCoDesign – Good!
  • MyTest – Bad!
  • MrSmith – Bad!
  • MyProjectName – Bad!

Choose your nearest server (this will optimise the speed your PC communicates with our server).

Click ‘Register’ to create your new account.

After the confirmation Content Studio should launch straight away.

Note: If for any reason your PC blocks Content Studio from running, you can simply launch it manually from the start menu, desktop icon or the dedicated Content Studio tab in supported versions of Revit.

Library Name and Permissions #

Give your Library a meaningful name and set the permissions some examples below:

Example Library Names

  • Main Library – Good!
    (Typically configured as a ‘Moderated’ library. Access is not restricted and any users within your account can access these files. Approval workflows prevent bad files being distributed).
  • Retail LibraryGood!
    (Typically configured as a ‘Moderated’ library for all to access, or can be a Project Library limiting access to select teams/individuals).
  • 4041_Project X – Good!
    (Typically configured as a ‘Project’ library. Access can be restricted to specific team members)
  • Adsk UK LibraryGood!
    (Typically configured as a read-only library. You don’t want end users uploading files into here!)
  • My LibraryBad!
    (If its a shared library, across multiple users, this would be confusing)
  • Approved FilesBad!
    (content studio has approval workflows in any library).
  • Revit 2019Bad!
    (content studio manages Revit versions so no need to split them into different named libraries)
