Summary of Improvements & Business Value

This release of SysQue introduces Spooling 2.0 which has numerous improvements over Spooling 1.0 for more productive spooling and prefabrication workflows.

  • Faster

    • 2x faster than spooling 1.0

    • On the fly spool definitions with native Revit workflows. 

  • More reliable

    • Easier sharing of spools and spooling info across the SysQue project team

    • Improved support for native Revit spooling functionality for easier creation and maintenance of spools

  • Better user experience

    • When deleting a sheet, it deletes the views, sheets, and schedules, but does not delete the assembly in Revit making it easier to regenerate sheets upon spool changes.

    • One-time template import for improved performance loading and reloading the Prefab 

    • Single Color Map view is imported out-of-the-box. SysQue supplied View Template that can be applied to any view to easily visualize spools.
