With the eTransmit for Autodesk Revit 2015 add-in, you can copy a Revit model and dependent files to a single folder for Internet transmission.
You can transmit any model that has been upgraded to Revit Release 2012 or later and saved
Important: During the transmittal process, eTransmit copies the versions of the host model and linked files that are stored on disk. Make sure that you save any desired changes to your files before running eTransmit.
Note: Revit Release 2011 and earlier files can be transmitted, but they cannot be upgraded and will not be checked for additional linked files.
You can select to:
- Include related dependent files such as linked models and DWF markups. (See File Types Not Included When Transmitting a Model.)
- Include supporting files such as documents or spreadsheets.
- Upgrade the Revit (.rvt) model and linked models to the current release.
- Disable worksets.
- Remove unused families, materials, and other objects from the Revit models to reduce file size.
- Delete sheets, and specific view types so that the models do not contain unnecessary data.
- Include only the views that are placed on sheets.
A common problem when sending Revit models to someone is neglecting to include dependent files. In some cases, not including these files can make the model unusable by the recipient. With eTransmit for Autodesk Revit 2015, dependent files can be included automatically in the transmittal folder, reducing the possibility of error. All fully specified (absolute) paths of dependent files are converted to relative paths or "no path" to ensure that the dependent files can be located by the model.

- Internal archiving
- Sending deliverables to clients
