Hi all,

I have one site and several buildings. Two separate types, several duplicated over the site. I have drawn the buildings in a separate file and i am linking them to a common site since that seemed the easiest way to do it. The site is sloping so all the buildings will requrie separate floor levels. The problems come when i want to publish coordinates back to the building plan so that levels are correct. If i do it for one all will change to the same level. Do i need to create a separate file for each identical building just because they have different floor levels? And if i do that then i will probably need to have a separate layout plan to be common between all identical buildings. Is there an easier solution because that seem sa long way around and alot of separate files to look after.

 The other thing that i cant really figure out is where to create my elevations and sections. Do i do them in the site plan file since my topography is in that file or do i need to link the site topography into each of the separate building files.

Any help would be appreciated, we are kinda teaching ourselves here and its getting tougher as we start more and more complex projects.

  1. I would have a model file for each building and I would have the exterior shell on a workset. (X-walls, doors, windows, roof)  Just have one complete project and copy it for the others.
  2. Each building would have the site linked into it correctly (& without other sub-links).
  3. The site file would have each building file (shell workset only) linked into it at the right locations.
  4. Except for the site plan for each unit, the remainder of the drawings could all be produced from on"typical" unit that has the CD's.
