I have a large model that I have been working on for a client that has Revit and is familiar with the program. We have just finished the first stage and need to send our model to the client. The model is a Central with Worksets and Linked Files (I would prefer to give the client full control of the elements)

What is the best way to Detach a file as it currently stands while presearving all of the models capabilities (*Without Damaging the Central Model)

It really doesn't matter if he is not on your network.  Just send him a full copy - local or a DOS copy of the central.  When he opens it, he will have to create his own central.

Worksharing has been a very helpful tool in View control of systems and I would like to allow him to use our model with systems already set up in our worksets with out him having to recreate

OK Then give him the model and you quit working on it.  Is that what you want?

 

There is not a way to share your working model unless you set it up on a Revit server or cloud.

I found a way... I had to open and detach from the central while presearving worksets, then i had to copy all of the linked files to the new directory with the new central and reload them into the project from thier new location. Once this was done I was able to save the Central and reliquish all of my owned worksets. Once the new independant files were created I Zipped the directory and uploaded it to an ftp.

I work mainly for the Manufacturing Industry and the reason I am trying to give the client a working model is so they can do detailed anaylisis of thier facilities systems and equipment. The client owns the model and they should be able to use it long after I am done with it.
