Ok, we have on office in the U.S. and one office in the Philippines. With AutoCAD, this is easy to handle, but with Revit, this doesn't seem to work so well.
What we need is a way for both offices to work on the project at the same time. I have looked at Hamachi, but that fails, I am guessing due to the distance it takes too long to open and times out. I have tried just sending them a local file with the appropriate worksets checked out, but it always gives an error saying that it can't edit some elements due to the central file not being found (why it needs to edit elements to open a file, I don't know) and yes I sent them all the applicable supporting files. We have tried having them login remotely to our computers here (again, this is too slow to really be usable).
This is something that is extremely important, right now my boss is of the opinion that he hates Revit and based on what I have seen so far, I am going to have to agree with him, it's difficult, if not impossible to make a good looking set of drawings, can't share the work between multiple offices, etc.
I do see potential for the program, but I am beginning to think that it is about 10 years from being usable, I am not trying to turn this into an I hate Revit thing, only to express how important it is that this is resolved in a timely manner.
In case it matters at all we are using Revit MEP 2009.
