Hello Im looking for a little advice on single disipline revit collaboration. Our office has been using Revit for about 4 years and have turned out several projects in the software, however we have never done a project with another architectural firm. We are working on the majority of the exterior and the other firm is working on the majority of the interior with a little crossover on both sides. I cant find any documentation on recommended processes for this type of collaboration. Some of the issues that Im sure we will be facing are mostly having to do with visibility, such as reference marks, annotations, ect. I would really like any suggestions for how to handle this scenario, and if anyone knows of any reference guides


Thanks in advance!

Generally speaking these would be two different Revit models linked together.  You would need to intermittently supply each other with updated models on a regular basis in order to coordinate appropriately.  Ideally you'd want as little overlap as possible (that is, minimise the crossover).  Linked file section/elevation marks do not come through, annotation you can get to come through by using "by linked view".  This would require some good communication to ensure the sheets and views are setup appropriately and people know exactly what they are working towards with regards to drawings lists etc.


Really you require a model manager to setup the systems, maintain them and ensure everyone understands how it comes together.  It's difficult to give specific help without being involved in the project... 


You could also give "Revit Server" ago, which would enable you to all work on a single file at the same time.  But you'll need to ensure you have suitable hardware and operating system, as well as bandwidth to support it.
