I have seperate 2 building files linked into a site file.  i was thinking of doing all my printing from the site file but i have a few issues and questions.

i will need to make a CD set which will involve a lot of detailing so my question is this....where do i do all the detailing? the linked building file or the site file?

also, when i cut a section in the building file, the tag wont show up in the site file. is there a way to have it show up, or do i have to draw another section in the site file and modify the section in the Visual Graphics to the Linked View which seems like a lot of work when you start to think about all the different drawings that need to be done.

 

is there some sort of standard or manual on how to go about doing this type of thing with linked files?

 

thanks!

Where is most of your work, I would think the building file.  That should be your host file with the site linked in.

all the modeling will be in the building files. but i have 2 of them because i have 2 buildings.  if i do all the work in the building files, then when i have to print i would have to open 2 files and print form each.  i was thinking if i linked them into an site file and set up all the sheets there then i can print everything from 1 source file.  but i'm realizing its not so easy to set up all the sheets if i do all the work in the building files

Although you can link views, be,ieve me, you don't want to go that route.  Wherever your model is that you will be tagging and editing is where you want your views and consequently, your sheets.

 

You say you have two buildings but there is no indication of size.  Small buildings can possibly reside in the same file and that would ease your problem.  Otherwise, I would treat one of your buildings like we do consultants.  It would have its own sheets and you would print those from that file.  These sheets would then be listed in the main building file.
