Hi guys!

 

lets say i have a family called "table set"

and two other families called "table" and "chair".

 

i nest the table and the chair in the "table set" family... do i have to keep the "table" and the "chair" family as a revit file on my harddrive or can i delete the files once they have been nested?

 

thanks

 

Igor

Obviously, linked files have connections.  But for families in the project or shared families, the only connection is that Revit remembers where they came from.  This doesn't really do anything for you except if you modify them, they can be saved to their old location.

 

This "connection" can really be a problem.  Lets say you have a template you created in 2011 with 2011 families.  You have now moved on to 2013 and you upgraded your template.  Now you want to change the door family by opening it from a project.  When you save it the default path is your 2011 library.  If you don't pay attention and change that, your 2013 family remains unchanged.
