Model Sharing
« on: April 19, 2017, 08:52:33 pm »
Currently reviewing options for model sharing, live model linking (Revit server, C4R etc) . Any recommendations to improve collaboration.  Is there one system to suit all projects and project teams?

We are using Revit Server for a major project and are currently hosting 45 models in the environment. There are 3 different geographic locations and we are all using live-models linked together. It does work quite well, the speed is acceptable and it helps not having to constantly create a shared model. My only advice would be to work closely with your re-seller and your IT group to make sure that your servers are set up properly. I'm not an IT expert so i can't comment specifically, but some server's storage arrangements do not play nicely with Revit Server. This can lead to network timeout errors and failed synchronizations. Overall, I am happy using it.
