dear all,

i have been using revit close to 10 years- but it seems strange to me about a 50 storey building: using R17

Becasue of repetative nature of the work we have many groups- the following groups duplicated many time as neccessary:

A group of walls/basic plumbing fittings

A typical floor plans

A group for basement floors and core walls...

A group for the floor/core walls

A group for balconies

A Seperate file for shofting window layouts...

A sperate file for strcutural columns


however- the file reaches 1000mb and then goes back down to 750mb...

any ideas ?

I hope you are managing this with worksets!

As you work, the file size continues to grow but there is waste in that file that has not been cleared out.  Making a new central always compacts the file back down.

I have never worked with a 1000mb file.   Perhaps something in Revit triggers a rebuild of the file.

it is Odd

there file isstill pretty much managelbe- using WS-

but the save/sync process takes time

there are three active users and geenrally its under control- and the re-make CeTRL helps- but still... very odd

some data on the building:

55 storeys inc the basement

700sqm gross floor area

2 BASIC WALL FACADES with punch wins (seperate LINK) about 20mb

2 CW facades with balconies...

5% of furniture is 3D

not much in terms of spcial families- none as complicated as 1mb

all is usual- the rest was mentiones already
