VW2016, project sharing, slow

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Since upgrading our VW to 2016, and converting our project to Project Sharing, we've experienced some problems.

First of all, our "local-project" files are atm. each 800mb and growing.. Is this normal? Our main file are a normal 110mb.

It's starting to be a problem with the "waiting time" when commeting and releasing design- and sheet layers. Everything seems to take a bit longer, even working the sheet layers annotation...

So far we haven't experience problems like this before, with our workmethode before Project Sharing..

Atm. we're using dropbox - Yes, we're changing as fast as the mailman can run to an inhouse serversystem instead...

By now working files have reached 1.16 GB, and the project 109 MB. And the project is not at all that big.

So things are getting very slow - solutions / comments would be much appreciated!

I would not be surprised to see slowness using Dropbox, we don't advise using any cloud storage solutions yet for exactly that reason, as well as the unreliable nature of their file sync when used without API integration, which we do not currently have.

We're aware that it is not advised, but is there any way to "clean" the file?

I don't quite understand how using dropbox makes the file size explode.

The slowness seems more related to the size than to the dropbox sync, the file is after all in the local dropbox.

After your deadline monday we'll put up our new server, but until then we would rather avoid fiddling with our set-up.....

Could it be related to the number of Undos?

As a test, try setting it to 1 and resaving the file.

Tools > Purge can clean a file of any unused resources, it would need to be run on each of the working files. However, I am fairly certain resources that have not been changed since the last commit are re-synced with the Project, they may be unrelated to speed.

Now we're off the dropbox, on our server.

As for the filesize issues it was because IFC entities which were quite heavy and repeated many times - we hope future IFC updates will make entities behave as symbols.

Hello,

I am new on Techboard.

As an architect in Switzerland me and mx partner are some of the first offices using

VW 2016 project sharing. We have troubles with it, because:

When we are working with walls, say draftsman 1 is modyfing one wall in layer 1st floor, VW asks to give release 2nd floor for instance, even if there is no such wall or even wall type on 2nd floor.

We have this problem throughout the whole project and it blocks us.

does anybody of you have the same kind of problem in Vectroworks Project Sharing. we would be happy to solve this together.

regards

MID

Hello Mid,

We haven't experienced that problem directly.. It only seems to be a problem if a component is bound to objects on the above- or below laying layer.. Otherwise the problem can occur if modifying e.x. stairs..

Regards

Jonathan
