 I have been playing around with Revit 2009 for the last year or so and have figured a lot out on my own, but I am having problems regarding the creation of masses and sub-masses.

 As all of my work is still at student level, it is 90% conceptual based. So I really like to push the boundaries and make more and more complex details within Masses. I generally use masses for the entirety of my project, then take it into 3ds Max 2009 to apply materials and render.

 The problem I face is that when I start creating masses (Both solid and void), the more I create the slower the system runs - which is expected. However, I was wondering if there is a way to alleviate or somehow slow down the slowing down as it were. I don't group my work, however I do use mirroing and copying.

 Is there a way to instance a copy in Revit like there is in 3ds Max 2009 (Shift + Drag click)? As I hear instancing is both easily editable and less of a memory hog.

 Any help would be thoroughly appreciated.

 Thanks,

 Sol

If your entire project 100% massing why don't you just do it in Max? As far as copying you can copyclip and paste or copy/multiple.

The idea was to learn both programmes as much as possible, and ultimately, I would like to be able to have the option to apply materials in either Revit (via wall creation etc) or 3ds Max.

That makes perfect sense. Well since your a student I would look at the Autodesk site to reap the benefits of your education, I am pretty sure you can get a student version of Revit 2010 and Max 2010 pretty easily. The massing abilities in 2010 are infinitely better than 2009 with the addition of the conceptual massing tool.
