Does anyone know how to maintain a reasonable file size; under 50mb or max 100mb? We have remove all unsued objects - What causes the file size to grow? I hope Revit will address this in the next issue.

Items bloating file sizes from my experience are: Excess/unused views (have a big effect) In-place families (avoid using if there is more than 1 element) Captured renderings (don't capture them and save them out) Remove excess loaded dwg and images. HTH.

as well as removing all 3D views you don't need, avoid arraying in place family, or external families, and in regard to speed in your view, avoid grouping lot's of detail lines... Smile

Linking files such as your site plans will help keep those file sizes down too.

If it's for transmittal, etc. I find the "compact file" feature under "options" when you do a save as works great. I've knocked off a third of the capacity when stripping the file of everything else won't due more for me.

Does having more Ceiling plans, and floor plans, and sheets make a difference.  I have all the default stuff in there and haven't deleted it.  My file is only 17MB and it's slowing down.  Any ideas how to fix the drag on it?  Is it a RAM issue?  I have 2.5 GB of RAM.  Any ideas?  I have a decent about of 3D views but that's cuz we're using them.  We have worksets setup but we don't actually place objects on worksets just because it's a residence and not a huge model so we didn't think we need to differnet worksets.  We only have it enabled so multiple people can use it at the same time.  Any ideas on how to speed it up?

 

Thanks,

Lorne

I have found that fixing problems from review warnings has helped the performance of my model. Not sure exactly why but it has.
