I have a project with two buildings. I have three files, a site, building#1, and building #2. Each of the three files has the other two linked into it.

I am contemplating how I should set my sheets up. My initial thought was to create building #1's sheets in the building #1 file and building #2's sheets in building #2's file.

Is there a benefit to creating a master file with all sheets referenced into it? I would say no becasue for example, it would be easier to edit building #1's sheet / view information while in the building #1 file.

What do you think?

Chris

hi i never link the files as you do. i always have one master file where i would link in all my building and site. but i do have sheets in both. i will have all my building plans, elevations details in the building file then in my master file i will have all my overall plans and site details ect. i don't think there is one best way, its just whatever works best for your individual project as it all depends on how big they are and how the central file is shared ect..

In fact there is, well sort of. You can reference views from a linked file through visibility graphics. See attached.

I don't see any benefit of using a master file to link all modle in it, unless you are producing a set of decument which documenting 2 building at the same time, but that is a vary case in my practice.

I ususally do one set of document for one building, because I will summit them as separated builidngs anyway.

I ususally do the site plan in the site model, then link the site model into each building site and create a plan view in each building model and specify the site model show as site plan as I created in the site model, and use the view crop or scope box to adjust the printable area.

I find that is the best approach for me, but I find that some people cannot do it, because they don't underestand what information should be placed in which model. For example, driveway should be in site model, but they somehow placed in builidng model. 

That kind of problem is cuased by the user have no understanding of building construction or careless of where information where should be placed.

Hope that helpful.
