Hi, This question may have been asked before, but i haven't found the answer i'm after when searching the forums. What are peoples recommendations for dealing with unit developments where you update a unit type it will update all copies of that unit. are groups the answer? what are the solutions for having multiple units of the same type in a building.

Groups are the answer but you have to be very careful how you use them. We have done many high rise developments all using groups. The main thing you have to watch is where your group finishes. For instance when grouping it always a good idea to disallow join on any walls that are to join to walls external to the group. This is only required if there are chances that the way these walls are to join varies. Our unit developments tend to be very oddly shaped which involves greater prior thought. Also it depends on whether the floor to floor height will vary up the building. As if there is a different floor to floor you'll need to have a different group. I would suggest playing with groups a little and mostly how they interact with elements outside of the group. Try making changes around them to see how they are effected. As a general rule never attach elements of a group to some external to the group... HTH. (man i said "group" a lot there. lol)
