Hi there,

In the next few months I will be starting a series of hotels with Revit (about 23) all based off similar designs. I want to make the file as easy and efficient to work with as possible at the beginning so I don't run into problems later.

The 10+ floors of rooms will be almost identical, so I was wondering whether Revit runs better (resources, filesize etc.) with fewer but larger groups (ie. the whole floor as a group, repeated up) or with many but much smaller groups (ie. each room as a group, then repeated for the rest of the building)?

Remember that when you edit groups, other user can touch an object in that group or you will be unable to save the change... So if your groups are very large, it's much more likely to happen.

I don't see any reason to do groups by floor.  

Be careful with what you put in your room groups.  If you have to edit items for your schedule, groups will really hurt you.  Consider not populating all of your rooms with furnishings and un-grouping one room of each type as your scheduled room.

Thanks for the heads up about work sharing and group scheduling. I think I'll definitely go the room grouping in that case. I'll keep looking into other techniques too.

 

Has anyone tried this way of scheduling apartments? http://autodesk-revit.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/scheduling-apartments.html
