What is Autodesk Revit [One Box] in the Building Design Suite Premium / Ultimate and how do I install and deploy it if I still have access to the other Revit Suite licenses?
In this case, I am going to use the following scenario to help illustrate how the licensing works:
• AutoCAD Revit MEP Suite 2013 x 50 licenses
• Building Design Suite Premium/Ultimate 2013 x 5 licenses
Autodesk Revit [aka Revit One Box] does not cascade down to the AutoCAD Revit MEP Suite license, or the standalone Revit vertical licenses. It will cascade up to the Building Design Suite Premium, Building Design Suite Ultimate, Educational and Multi-flex offerings.
• Autodesk Revit MEP and AutoCAD MEP products installed through the Revit MEP Suite will cascade up to the Building Design Suite Premium/Ultimate pool.
• If you have multiple license types in the pool, Autodesk Revit [aka Revit One Box] will always pull a license from the Building Design Suite Premium/Ultimate pool.
We would recommend installing/deploying Revit MEP from the Revit MEP Suite media as the general practice. Only if somebody truly needs the multi-discipline capabilities of Autodesk Revit, should they install that version, since it will always pull a Building Design Suite license from that pool.
Autodesk Revit can only be purchased as part of the Building Design Suite Premium or Building Design Suite Ultimate.
A quick note about the deployments, if your site has Revit Architecture Suite 2013, Revit MEP Suite 2013, Revit Structure Suite 2013 and Build Design Suite Premium / Ultimate 2013, you will need to create 4 types of deployment for each of the Revit types in order to cascade the licenses correctly.
