Hi everyone, we are about to start a job where we are going to do the base building and the fitout. My idea was to have them in separate models with the other one linked in each of them (base building model with the fitout linked and fitout model with base building linked).

What I would like to ask you is how to organise the sheets. I don't think having them separately on each model is a good idea. I basically thought of 2 ways to do it:

1) Link both models in a third one just for documentation purposes or

2) Create all the sheets inside either the base building or the fitout model.

What would you guys recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Document where the model is.  That may mean the shell drawings are in the shell project and your "fit out" drawings are in their models.  If all of the documents are in one set, you can schedule all the sheets from one file (probably shell) but the sheets would be printed from the seperate projects.

 

Typical, we document these as seperate projects.

Thanks for the reply WWHub.

Wouldn't it be easier to have all the sheets in one file only? Can you think of any issues we may come across in the future if we do it that way?

I just think it's not very practical to have them in separate files, that's why all the questions.

Thanks again.

My recommendation was not from lack of experience.  Since you don't accept that,I suggest you do some tests of your own creating some views in a model where you document elements from links.  Try out:

  1. Tag different linked elements - doors, rooms, walls etc
  2. Cut a detail view and use edit cut profile...
  3. Try splitting a model face to assign new materials
  4. Try hiding multiple linked elements in a view
  5. Try over-riding graphics for linked elements
  6. Dimension to linked elements, move the element in the linked file then re-open your file and see what happened to your dimension.

When you are done experimenting, let others know your results here.
