long time user, first time poster so apologies if this question has been asked many times before or if I have posted this in the wrong thread.
I need to pick the brains of those Revit masterminds that have worked on large scale projects within a team & are pro at optimizing the model for size & speed efficiency.
The Project: A 30,000 seat Football Stadium with a team of 8 working on copies of a central file. The project is split up into about 10 worksets, with structural, MEP as well as our own models linked in.
The problem: We are all relatively new to Revit with varying experiences from past jobs & projects. The model itself is about 150MB, & as you could imagine with all the worksets, imports, families, 2D drafting lines etc. it can really slow the file down & frustrate everyone especially when time is of the essence & deadlines loom
The Solution: This is where I need your help. Can anyone suggest or even point me in the direction of where some useful information might be & save us from working weekends/all-nighters? Has anyone out there worked on sports stadiums in Revit before? Id love to hear how you tackled such problems. I am sure there may be more than 1 way to optimize this model & im happy with any so long as it makes work flow more efficient.
Firslty, I was thinking that moving all the sheets (roughly 300) to a separate file & linking the main file into it might be a good start. The only thing is im worried that we may have to go through & create all views in the 'sheet' file all over again once the model is linked in. Would i then have to copy all 2d drafting information ie lines, annotation etc into the sheet file?
thank you all in advance for any suggestions & help.
