Hello everyone,

we are currently working on large project (hotel) which include many instances of the same element (rooms). Till that moment we used to work on groups, but at this point it's berly possible to work on the model due to efficiency issues. I consider dividing model into main architectural model, and model for room design. Would that significantly improve the speed of the model? How would you do that? At this point I have two basick concepcts:

1. Creating each room type (we have like 5 types), and then linking it to central model and coping link 500 times. I think it would work great in terms of efficiency but i don't know how to mark thinks like, for exampel, doors. They would have the same "mark" in every instance, and i need them to be indyvidauly marked. 

2. Crating file with one full floor, and rooms as groups. It would meet our requirements in terms of indyvidualy marked doors, but I doubt it will resolve efficience issue.

What is your experience?
