1- Create project specification file that contains elements to be used by all users.
2- Add extended data to these elements such as Notes, unit price and specific color.
3- Users can easily place these elements in the project file using family view palette.
4- These specification files can also be used for future projects.
5- Standardize the design process across the board.
6- If elements are assigned a unit price, the material take-down report will automatically calculate the total cost of materials.
7- Users do not have to navigate to local folder to load more element types that do not exist in the project file.
