Q - question

Opening Revit projects directly from web.

A - answer Autodesk Revit can open RVT and RFA files (projects, families) also directly from a URL address on web.

In the file open dialog (Ctrl+O) try e.g. to enter the file name as:

Revit will download the file from the internet to a temporary folder and open it for editing. Possible changes are saved back to this temporary file (not back to the web).

Another option for using web repositories is inserting Revit families (libraries) directly from web (e.g. from the Block Catalog) by mouse-dragging with the iDrop technology. Try e.g. to use the "eyedropper" and drag the chair from the block web page "Dining chair" to your Revit application window.
