HI,

 i have been asked by my company to explore Revit  and one of the questions I had from IT was what is the file size of a typical model. Now I realize that it all depends on how big the model, how many floors etc. but if someone could give me a ballpark idea that would be great.

 

Thanks!

from what i have heared, a good rule of thumb is 5 times x ( a comparable Autocad file size)

1 meg. in Autocad - 5 megs in Revit. how they came up with this ratio i don't know.

if it is true or not i don't know. but i'm sure i am about to find out. Which is good, cause i would like to know too. Smile

The first thing to tell your IT guys is that the REVIT file is probably no larger than your combined files from AutoCAD for a similar project.  Our working central file for a 4-5 story hotel is about 150 meg at the end of a project but that can be miss-leading to your network guys depending on what they may be looking at.  Because you actually work on a local copy and only update items in the main file, I think your network traffic is less than it is with AutoCAD.

Hi

Here are some numbers for reference. Just the architecture plans/model, with no schedules structure or technical stuff.

A villa 6500 sq ft on three levels with site contours and exterior walls      5.5 KB

A squash court 1650 sq ft; sunken with gym/sauna structure modeled     4.0 KB

A barn/studio 2800 sq ft interlocking timber structure modeled in detail   6.7 KB
