I created a custom truss with some 300 members using model-in-place and would like to convert it to a single uneditable object in order to speed up the project file and make the file size easier to handle for the program. Grouping them is not an option as it still saves the individual member info within the group, still big and slow. Any ideas on how to join them? make it a family or mass?  Thanks

"In-Place" families increase the file size, is preferable to use a "Family" of an "in-Place"....

Sorry ... next time is maybe this time - you will have to determine.  In-place elements should only be created for single use.

Since you have already done a bunch of work (albeit down a difficult path), your best option to make your in place modeling into a proper family might be to export to another 3d format (.dwg), and then create a new revit .rfa family.  In the new family, you could import your .dwg version of the truss you modeled.  You won't be able to put parameters in this family very easily or effectively, but you would at least have your original geometry...  I haven't tried this process before, but it seems like it might work.  Good luck!
