We want to create a copy of an existing masterplan central file, but there are 105 linked revit model (buildings) Is there a quick way to save a copy with all of the linked files that you can detach and move to another location? Or do we have to save a detached version and make copies of all the links move them to the desired location and relink each file one by one? There are 105 so VERY tedious. Is there something like e-transmit in ACAD or "packaging" in indesign that I am not aware of?

If all of the links were set correctly (files in the same folder as the central), then you can just copy and move them all.

No there are 2 folders of existing and new buildings that are not in the same folder as the revit central.

From your HELP under

Manage Links Dialog:

Path Type

Indicates whether the linked file's saved path is relative, absolute, or the Revit server path.

 

We always have the linked file either in the central folder or a sub folder that is in the ame folder as the central.  Then all links are relative and everything can be copied.  Now your only solution is to reset every path after copying.

Yeah thanks. I didn't set up this file. But it is good to know for future set ups!
