After some thought and discussion I decided to try using referenced viewports to create master apartment floor plans. The units are on one file and the building is on another. It is a bit of work to setup but seems good except for one big problem, the units do not show up in 3D. Does anyone have experience using this system and how do I solve the unit 3D issue.
So...we've come across an annoying bug. We are using a reference viewport system to build separate Production files, containing all of our sheets for a given project. These files reference in a Design file as we call it where all of the live linework is housed. The reason for this is not for discussion, it is just a workflow we have found works best for a multi-user/large multiple drawing set projects. With this workflow comes a strange bug when referencing worksheets through referenced viewports....they shrink. We often have to build our smart database worksheets/legends in the Design file and then reference those into the Production file through viewport references, but when we do, the worksheets shrink in vertical dimensions. We noticed this because we often have to put a reference symbol over the top of the worksheet for items (this is because the =image function in VW needs some serious attention), and when the worksheet and symbols come through the reference, they are no longer aligned and often are off by a completely illegible amount, no longer aligning with their intended worksheet row.
I am looking for the best way to set up views of elevation drawings in my orthographic model views; front, rear, etc. These are drawings from a designer with different; CAD, workflows. I hoped I might do them as viewport references in a vertical working plane so that when he makes an update change in elevation in 2D, I can then compare to with the model, and ensure its coordination. Thanks!
I am currently working on a multi unit development. Currently there are 12 individual units (~100m² each). Each file has its on VW file. There is also one VW file which has a referenced VP for each of these units. This "master" file is ~550mb and is quite sluggish and prone to crashing. Soon will be adding another ~20 units for the next stage and I am concerned that the file will become unusable. Is this the correct approach? I think my comp specs are above recommended? The units aren't particularly complex, simple monopitch roofs, two cladding types. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
