Alternative workflow approach for Teamwork

Recommended Posts

The attached PDF shows an alternative workflow for Teamwork in a multi user environment. It was developed with the assistance and advice of several users who regularly do projects in this way.

The system is based on having a Master Plan file (or files) where all of the 'design' work is done. This is a working file only and does not contain any working drawings. All of the working drawings are contained in subordinate files with the building information referenced in via Design Layer Viewports (DLVPs).

As a system it has its pros and cons (as any referencing system does). It is however a fairly simple system to set up and manage.

The attached .vwx file is in fact a zip file containing a simple example showing the principles of the system. After downloading the file change its suffix to .zip and extract the folder within.

This folder contains three drawings. A master file which is the 'model' file and two subordinate files containing the plans and elevations/sections respectively. Note that the building is modelled in block form only because its purpose is to demonstrate the principles only.
