assume as I am a designer of 15 floor building. I'ld like to sent my conceptual design to consultants. for making details design I start with revit file size 4.2 Mb. when consultant modifield model to match the concept and return back to me file size was grow up 25 Mb. But still has many change during construction works. How could I handle the huge file like that. Ok workset may good for user's permission lock/unlock for any part has been stricted. sometime just minor change. Do I need to transfer the whole file to update of these thing.? The AutoCAD xref command were useful for this case. just created floor plan layout each floor. then transfer only floor that impacted the layout. I can still use floppy disk or sent by mail as I desire. my question : Does revit can link files *.rvt together.? eg. same xref concept. if so, I thought I will create views,sheet,etc. on combination file. each file links will be streamline enough to transfer. Any Idea.?

Hello there, if i understand your question correctly....the answer is YES, Revit can link *.rvt files, the only problem i've found is that (imagine you are doing a hotel wit 3 bldgs)... if you have a unit type that is one file...then you link that file in another file to create your building, you can copy that link inside the 2nd file and create groups per floor, you can always go back to the unit type file as lon as you unlink it from the 2nd file....but if you want to link tha building file in another file i.e. a Master Site Plan...the link on the unit type does not show, i have not found the fix for this... But if you are not using 2 files linked then you wont have a problem... Hope this helps...
