    Bind Links for Sending to Consultants?

    So I am about to embark on a multi-building project, where many of the buildings might have similar pieces.


    I am currently wieghing the pros and cons (for my project) of using groups and links and where to use each.


    My question is, when I use links (and I will), should they be bound before sending to the consultants for their work for each building or should I just send the links, even if there are many of them per building?

      thanks for that Alex! I was just contemplating how to sync Revit files that I will be working on out of the office for the next couple of weeks and now I can eTransmit the files back and forth to myself and be assured that all linked and related files will be included.
      I'm retired, if you don't like it, go around!

        thanks, I got the same sort of reply at AUGI, and I am really looking for more discussion on "best practice". I understand my options for including the links, but my question is whether to include them all or bind some of them? For example, floor slab links within a building, stairs, etc. all of which may repeat across similar buildings on the site.

        I hope I am making sense. Should each building Revit file I send still have the links associated with them, or is it better practice to bind them for the consultants?

          I'd use the links. Why go through the enormous hassle of binding them every time? The only "valid" reason I could think off is because you wouldn't want to forget to send some linked files. But that's cleared out using ETransmit.
          Remember that you not only need to bind them once, but with EVERY revision as well...

            Make sure your using Shared Coordinates so that all the links merge in the proper places....
