Just looking for a little advice and an outside perspecive here.  I'm working on a project that has 3 different jobs (diff project numbers, dates, revisions, etc..) all within the same building.  We've decided to split the models into 4 different pieces, the 4th piece being an exterior shell model, and link them into one another.  A few places in the building will be worked on in 2 different projects, so they will definitely need to be linked.  Is this the optimal way of doing this?  Or is there a way to have different dates and project numbers associated with different sheets all in the same model?    Thanks.

There are a several issues here.  One is the sheet naming convention, another is the site and third would be revision issues. 

 

I have used what you are proposing and it will be a pain.  You will get tired of having to work in multiple projects.  If you do this, you could use common detail sheets in all of them.   Investigate how you can link by view.  Then you can create 3D sections/details in one project that are linked by view into your other projects.

 

An alternative is to fully develop one model then open detached copies of that for your separate projects and each of those would have their correct site linked in.   You could handle the few plan changes by using design options that are set by view in the various projects.  All of the site notation could be in the separate site models and linked by view for just those plans.

Here's a little more info to show why we plan to do it this way.  Different teams are working in each individual project so moving back and forth bt models will not be a big issue.  The building as a whole is also large enough to warrant splitting up the model(airport terminal).  Detail sheets will be slightly different for each project and we will simply import or copy and paste the common details necessary into each separate project... Also, the building is being almost fully modeled in one model before we go ahead and split it up into pieces..... I guess I just wanted to know if there was a way to use separate project numbers, dates, revisions (sheet numbers will all be unique so that's not an issue), etc. within the same model?

Which one is it? 

You wrote:..." The building as a whole is also large enough to warrant splitting up the model(airport terminal)."

and you questioned: " I just wanted to know if there was a way to use separate project numbers, dates, revisions" 

 

Seems like you already decided to split up the model so the question is moot for this project.  The answer to this for other reference would be separate project numbers / dates ... yes - easy to do - just different shared parameters. - Different revisions - NO.

I was simply giving you the reasons why we had decided to do that while responding to the issues you raised in your previous comment.  The building is right on the borderline of needing to be split up most likely.  I just wanted to know which way other people thought was optimal, taking the size of the model out of the equation.  Splitting it up for each project to have their own model or keeping them all in the same model?  (I don't think the detached from central option is a good option for this particlar project/s)  Thanks for your thoughts.
