    Bathroom as Symbol

    OK, so I've created a bathroom as a symbol for a large multifamily development. But I need to have the door tags editable for each symbol instance. How do I do that? Thank you!

    Workflow for large projects

    Thank you, everyone, for your replies and advice. This has been incredibly helpful and instructive. Moving from mostly single family and light commercial to large Multi-family has been an interesting transition. I appreciate all your advice! Cheers.

    Workflow for large projects

    My most sincere thanks for the input you've all given so far. This particular project is a little complicated so I'm going to adopt a hybrid of just about all the suggestions above. Breaking out the units so that I can reference them (i.e. only draw/detail them once) is going to be a huge savings. Pulling out the elevations, section views and other details into separate referenced files is also going to be a huge savings of both time and CPU power. This will also allow me to bring in outside help without necessarily having to go the Project Sharing route. There have been too many bugs with that lately. Thanks again!

    Workflow for large projects

    @herbieherb Thank you for your input. I hadn't thought of creating a layer for the units and then referencing them onto the individual stories. This particular project is a historic building, but the units stack vertically so that could save me a boat load of time and frustration. I'll give that a shot and hopefully it will help with the computing power. Currently I have 16mb of ram and a decent graphics card. I may be upgrading near the end of the year so we'll see. Thanks again!

    Workflow for large projects

    I'm looking for advice on what the best workflow is for a large multifamily project. The project is 5 floors, 145k+sf. Currently my file is 500mb+ and is seriously killing my computer. It takes forever to do simple tasks. Should I break apart the floors into separate files, then reference them into a master file to pull all my sheets together? Or is there a better way? Thank you!

    Un-joined walls

    @Matt Panzer The entire wall comes unjoined. I don't know what custom component joins are. I use the join wall tool, not the join component tool. Is that what you meant?

    Un-joined walls

    @Matt Panzer It's generally noticed after I have have saved, committed and closed the file then come back to the working file. I do not notice it happening while I'm working in the file. However that's not to say it doesn't happen. One thing I can think of is that all my wall types are different. This particular project is an old historic masonry building and so I have about 15 different wall thicknesses all as their own wall style but with the same class and texture assignments. There are also a fair number of wall projection elements for pilasters at the perimeter of the exterior walls. That may or may not have something to do with it. Thanks!

    Un-joined walls

    @Matt Panzer I do not have any idea what might be causing the problem. I am using Project Sharing, though it isn't necessary right now. I am using Design Layer Referencing but not within the building model. The references are for 2D details on separate design layers not tied to stories. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Un-joined walls

    Lord give me strength. Can someone tell me why all my wall intersections are un-joining when I open the file? It's really getting annoying to spend hours every week re-joining my walls on a 145,000sf multifamily project.

    Worksheets - window schedules

    There seems to be a problem with the text. For the first User Field it works fine. For 2 and 3 it won't accept text. I've tried setting it to General, Text, Boolean, nothing works. Any thoughts?

    Worksheets - window schedules

    @Pat Stanford Thank you! That is exactly what I needed. For the database header, do I need to change the record or do I just change the header cell itself? Or does it matter? Thank you again!

    Worksheets - window schedules

    Hello all, I have a window schedule that is database driven. I have columns for Mark, RO width and height, sash operation, etc. However I need to have certain columns where I just enter text that will not be database driven. How do I do this? I've been fussing around with this for the better part of my morning and I'm about to pull my hair out. Thanks!

    Window Schedule Worksheets

    Pat, thank you! I actually didn't need the "on schedule" criteria, so it's gone now. The way I have to build the windows is complicated, so only those that will be on the schedule are checked in the OIP. Everything else is left off. This was an interesting learning experience. I appreciate your help! Cheers.

    Window Schedule Worksheets

    I figured it out. The stacked order of my criteria was wrong. I deleted the 'Field Value-On Schedule' criteria and kept the ID Prefix criteria. Works great! Now to create individual schedules for 10 buildings and 4 floors....*bangs head on desk*.
