Hello friends,I am in the process of completing a high rise serviced apartment for an assignment. The project is roughly 80% complete, and after the facade was assembled, the file size started to increase. The file size isnt a problem though, the problem is that the file is starting to lag, and most importantly, acrobat fails to plot my drawings and crashes after a while.I have attached an image of my model at the moment. The facade consists of multiple in-place masses. I have assigned a steel material to each facade mass component. Are there any suggestions as to improve the way i am working with these families within the project.Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.Regards

"In-Place" families will increase ALOT the file size. Create a Family for that and replace them.
