First post

When a model is split into files by level and the stairs are modelled in each file, floor to ceiling for that level only, how can the balustrades most efficiently be modelled at each level, should the balustrades be broken at each flight, or at each scissor stair and should the balustrades be segmented centred on goings of a stair run/flight where a baluster needs to be seen.

To control balusters precisely or do the balustrades require breaking at these points.

BTW,

How can you align the breaks in the balustrading sketches. In plan these appear to work nicely, however they don't align after getting out of sketch mode. The sketch line appears neither centred, left or right justified.

Can you be specific why we shouldn't separate into files level by level? What pitfalls do you predict WWWhub?

that sounds like some architectural desktop workflow. never heard of anyone doing that in revit. if you are worried about model size autodesk has published a white paper about model management.

Where can I find this edict from Autodesk?  DOES IT SCALE? You know we are creating a pretty f!@#$n huge model. it's 10 levels at 150-250 x 100-150 m floor plates approx. Further the model is full of fit-out. Yet I am wondering... maybe cris price knows?
