Is there a way to reduce the size of the revit file for archiving purposes or even for very large projects. A small project I am working on is already 6mb and is not finished yet. I would like to be able to archive onto DVD's.

you may want to wait until the project is finished. but this was a post from previous form member. i can't remember who it was. i'm sure that are other things you can do, but this will get you started To reduce the file size of your projects 1. Open the file with the Audit option selected. 2. On the File menu, click Purge Unused. 3. In the Purge Unused dialog box, delete all of the definitions not required for your projects. 4..On the File menu, click Manage Links. 5. In the Manage Links dialog box, remove all of the CAD, Revit and DWF files not required for your project. 6. On the File menu, click Raster Images. 7. In the Raster Images dialog box, remove all of the images not required for your project. 8. Save the project with a different name, so the file database can be recompiled HTH Post edited on 2006-10-24 15:14:53
