Hi all

 

So... I'm currently working in a multi resi project (about 200 stand alone houses - 59 different types).

This project is moving onto tender phase and there are many amendments to make to all 59 types (for example, wall types, door types, window types, etc).

 

Originally we had a separate file for each individual house, but this is not practical. If I need to change the wall type I need to open each individual type (which means 59 times!).

 

Hence, I thought a good idea would be to structure the file in the following way>

 

1-"Documentation & Modelling" file where I have all 59 types one next to the other (each house type has its own individual workset)

2-Each house of the above file is linked into an individual house file (say "Type A") and all worksets are closed except the "Type A" workset

3-Each individual file (Type A, B, C gets then linked into the masterplan site to get overall plan, street elevations, etc).

 

Here's the issue: when I link the individual types (which are a link of the documentation & modelling file) into the masterplan file I can't "manage worksets" (ie all 59 houses appear, even though only 1 house is shown in the link).

 

Any ideas on how to overcome this?

 

Any better ways to handle a project with multi residential units? 

 

Thanks

One of the things revit insists is thinking ahead.   A testing of the process ahead of time would obviously have been beneficial. 

 

That being said, I'm a little confused.  Why is the main file linked into an individual house file?  Is that just for documentation purposes?

At first I wondered why you linked in the individual files into the site but then I realized you were trying to control their placement.  Obviously this process doesn't work and I don't see how it can ever work.

 

My solution - Explode the original file in the Type file and delete the elements and worksets for the other houses in these files.  Now the site will work correctly.

I should not have used the word explode because that is just part of the process.   First "bind" the link, then explode the resulting group, remove the other units and then remove the group from the file.
