Hoping to get some advice I'm building a mutli level apartment block with 8-10 apartments on each level I have made these outside of my main model and LINKED them back in. I now want to adjust individual apartment balconey, windows, enterence points etc. Is the only way to do this to BIND them to the main model? (each apartment is adding 10-15mb)

You should have 3 models

1 Site, context and streets (optional)

2 The department

3 The envelope.

You link all to the envelope, there you adjust all that you say need to be different.

You can not edit a linked model while within the host model so you will hae to close the host to edit the links.


Do you have multiple links of the same model to get your 8-10 apartments or is each apartment unique?


If each unit is unique and is a seperate project with seperate sheets, the seperate models might be appropriate.  But if not, given the size of these models, I would have them all in my main model.  So I would bind them in.  Remember, when you bind, they become a group.  It might be appropriate to ungroup then delete the group definition.
