  1. Not sure if I'm posting this in the right location but my question is how should I go about setting up this project using worksets or linked files. The project will have all disciplines but small. It's a fueling pumphouse with a control center. Im pretty much the only person in the office that has Revit experience and will be working with two other AUTOCAD guys thats new to revit. How should I start the project with an Arch temp or Mech temp being that I will need piping and mech equipment. If I use a Arch. temp I will have to load all of the piping and mech. fittings, and on this thread I read that you dont want to link files that are small and in house. so how will I go about this? I was the lone ranger in the office using revit and now the firm is looking to get a few more guys involved. Or should somthing this small be done by one guy like me.

Well it really depends on how "small" small actually is.  What version of Revit are you using?  We run the Revit 2014 Suite and ALL of our projects start with out own office template file, we don't use the ootb one.  We have a few pieces of mech, struct, and elec. but we mainly load in what we need when we get to that point.  If it is as small as you say it is I would not link files and just make sure everyone has a firm graps on worksets and how they can be used to control visability.  Working with and teaching people new to Revit can be hard at time so you need to make sure you are watching what they are doing.  Good Luck!

Thanks we are running Revit 2013. I'm also in the process of creating office templates and Standards. (Load families as needed, and use worksets.)

I suggest you set up seperate working views in the project for each discipline to work in.  What you decide to show in sheeted views will probably be different.
