We have been having some difficulties with an Architectural model for linking into our MEP model. Originally, we were unable to purge unused elements due to a handful of model groups apparently being corrupt. Every time we went to purge we would get an error message that: This action has caused the deletion of non-editable workset XXX”

I was able to over come this by running in a debug mode called “allowdeletionofnonemptyworksets” ungrouping all the other model groups, and putting the corrupt ones on a separate workset, then closing that workset through the entire project, opening up a floor plan and making its view range unlimited both directions and saving that floor plan (which now enveloped the entire building via view range) to a new file.

Once that was complete I moved all the room separation lines out of walls, and resolved a few unjoined element errors. (possibly related to ungrouping?)

After I resolved those errors, removed materials and purged unused. I saved the file, audited and compacted it. It still ran slow when inserted into our MEP model.


heres where the new problem lies:

I then went back into the file, and went to investigate the families. When I open the families, I either received a “serious error warning”: (see attached)

Which closes the family.

OR the family will open, and most of the building envelope is contained within the family.

any Ideas???

Why are you editing the linked file are you going to do that with every update?  There is no need to do this if you are only linking since only the model elements are loaded and only loaded each time the file is used, nothing is added to your file so no space is taken.
