    Combining multiple revit files into one large file

    I am trying to come up with the best way to combine models and allow them to be workable and not too big. I have 5 parts of a building, wings, each in a separate model. There is one model in which they are all loaded so you can see how they work together.It is very difficult to go in and out of each model every time there is a change. I would like to set it up so that I can work in one file and have all the buildings included. For instance, I need to renovate the existing walls on the first floor of ALL the wings. Is there a best way I can do this? Opinions?

    You can go into the model that everything is already loaded and insert them in the model then ungroup....

    But I think the building was split up on purpose because of file sizes...

        In total they are only about 175 M total. But they are bare bones at this point...

            Not now but when we are working in them and adding everything to them, it will be.

                  Gotcha.

                  Opinions vary, but at that size i would shove it in one file and be done with it, assuming its all one Drawing Package / Permit.

                    That will work but what if we are working on different areas and a year later we need to work on another area. Doesn't it get too big? maybe put the different renovations on worksets?
