I'm working on a project where the client wants a revit model but we aren't printing any sheets (so we don't need any details)

Is there a way to export the model so that the file doesn't containg any of our propriatary details, annotations, detail components, etc?

a Purge doesn't get rid of much

If you don't want anything but the model including no dimensios etc then simply link the model into a blank project then bind it.

When binding it, does that give them total access to the modeled elements?

Yes, they have the model.... That was what you asked for.  They have no details, notes, dimensions - no annotative items at all but they do have the model.   You can not give them the model without giving them access.

Thanks! That's exactly what I want.

The question about access was coming from when I link models. The linked model is a full model but I can't get in and change anything. But I think the binding cures that.

Binding a Revit model it creates a group in the host project.  The whole model is a group so if you want to manipulate it, you should ungroup it then you will also want to delete the group from the bottom of your browser to compact the file.

This suggestion is slightly different than what you're asking, but you can automate the extraction of a model or series of linked models for better transmitting of models to owners/clients/consultants.  Its called eTransmit for Revit.  It will automatically purge, detach from central, etc... and lets you select the options you want to do once you've "cleaned" your model.

 

Cheers!
