Hey all,

Ok, i am working on a project in REVIT MEP 2012 and recently got an updated architectural model. I went about the "cleaning up proces" (detaching from central, purging unused, etc.) like usual and saved it over the previous arch model. Now, when i try to open up my MEP Central file, it gives me an error that causes me to either save a recovery file or cancel the load. And when i try to open the recovery file to fix whatever corruption is going on, it gives me the same error message. I even tried opening the MEP Central file and forcibly telling it to read the file from a seperate location, but to no avail. Luckily i can revert back to the previous arch model and everything in my MEP Central seems to be fine. I can open the arch model by itself with no problems besides it being a little slow due to the size of the model, its just when i try to link it in with the MEP Central.

Any ideas whats going on??

Thanks

Here are some facts you must know.

 

There is no need to "clean up" a linked model.  Linked means just that - linked. The linked model size doesn't really matter - only the model elements really contribute to your operation and then even, not to your file size.

 

Don't save over top the old model.  Save it with a new name - we add a date - and use reload from then pick your new file.

Thats just how i was informed to do things when i started working at my company with saving over the previous arch model, due to revit providing the backups/previous versions in te folder just with a .0001, .0002, etc. is it better to do it the way you said? I did try to link it in using the reload from option and i still got the same message

You tried the reload from - the model you did not clean up?  If so, then that model may be corrupt - even though you can open it.

And you are not linking it correct?  The link already exists in your model so you just manage links and use reload from.
