    yes! bruins won!

    so, i think i need to maybe be more clear.
    how does it work between two companies using revit?
    do i copy/download all files that they have exactly so i have what they have? and then when i do our work, when i have it linked it will update?
    again, thanks....

      For collaborating with other companies using revit, it is best to link their files into yours. For instance, if you're doing the MEP, then you link the architectural and structural files into yours. Just set up directories for their files, if they keep the same file name for each update, we keep an archive of the old and then just "reload" the links from the "Manage>Manage Links" tabs. If they rename the files, then do a "Reload From" (same dialog) to select the new file name.

        i was advised to save as and change the filename a bit, so i can know its our local file.
        you are mentioning linking the file?
        does this involve revit server? if so, we will have one cpu running Revit, and from my understanding, revit server is for multiple users on a site.
        again, i am new, and i do not know all i need to know.. i am scheduled for classes, and right now i am just trying to get more acquainted with revit..

          The naming of files really is really concerned with your own internal quality assurance procedures.
          Where I ply my trade, we have a recieved folder where all the files that are recieved from the Architect etc. are placed in chronologically named sub-folders.
          We also have a folder for our central file which is named according to our internal file naming system. This has the architect's model linked into it. This is backed up daily.
          This means that if something horrible happens to the central file we can go back to yesterday's M&E and the current edition of the architect's model. Both of which are separately stored and as such should not be tainted with whatever pestilence wrought havoc on our central file. (This is not uncommon due to the fabulous complexity of a central MEP file.)
          Don't cry, don't raise your eye, it's only Revit wasteland.
