Hi,I did a search but could not find any relevant information.

I am starting on a project to model several multi storey residential buildings on 1 site. It consist of several blocks with different levels for each block (ie block 1 start on RL 50.00 and block 2 start on RL 50.8  etc.) 

Here is what we plan to do. Model each building in a seperate file. The walls will be modelled per level with detail components for furniture and bathroom layouts.

We have 7 blocks to model and may have similar units in each of them. All building will make up 2 type of 1 bedroom, 2 different types of 2 bedrom units and 2 types of 3 bedroom. Having to model each unit will take a long time.

I am wondering if there is a quick way to model/ duplicate the unit types quickly. 

 

Also any tips and trick for setting up such a model would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Not sure about your terminologies ... but I'll take a shot.

 

  • First, I would model the building shell on its own workset.
  • If each buildings is different then model it in its on file and link in the site.
  • If idividual residential units (like a 1BR) are the same but in different buildings at different levels, all of the interior could be grouped, loaded into each building project and the placed where needed.  If a change is made to one of these unit, you will have to reload the group in affected models.  If the units are only similar to start with then modified somewhat, you could still use the group for initial placement, then ungroup and modify in the project.
  • Each project could then be linked into your site project.
