Im fairly new to Revit. I was sent a model, and I made it a central file. Then I created a Local file from that. Ive been working on that local file and syncing back to the central with no issues. The architecht sent me an updated model. When I try to sync to the new model, I get this message .. "Your Local file is not compatible with the central model", It says I have to create a new local file and copy paste any changes.,...I cant do that. Its too much work. I dont think the architect changed the version of Revit they are using halfway through a major project.

 

any ideas? Im using MEP 2013

You should not have used the architects model.  You need your own model with the architect's model linked into it.  You need to read your HELP and on-line tutorials about the Revit file linking process.

It might be easier to link the new model, and delete the old model. but keep the work ive done.

 

thoughts?

You could delete all elements that are not yours and link in the architect's model.

 

I always recommend that linked models be kept in separate worksets so that they can be completely turned off in views.
