Vojtech Slavik

Hi, I'm doing apartment house which have 8 stories and from 2-7 stories are same.

 

I'm looking how to do model with all plans with the same changes.

For example when I move bed I would like to this change in all other plans

How you usually dealing with this problem ?

Right now I know there is this alternatives. I would like to have something like interactive copy of plan.

 

1. Copy every change to another stories ?

2. Making modules ?

3. Hotlink ?

Some other  ?

I'd use hot linked modules.

Thanks

Is there some solution without saving and updating everytime ?
And what is better : modules or links ? Little bit confuse with differences between this . 

Do you know Lee ?

Hi there! 

I would use hotlinked modules, and in particular, the iceberg method. The iceberg method allows you to edit your hotlink within the same model file (makes it easier to reference all other floors) and makes the module hassle-free to reexport/update when editing is required.

Found this old doc from Graphisoft, you can read up more on the iceberg method here:

The "Hotlink Management - Workflow Guide" can be purchased on the Graphisoft Learn Portal.

Hope this helps!

Thank you 🙂

Yes it is hard to have compassion for their alleged complicated situation which seem to be a constant battle against technical, informational and temporal factors when they at the same time are charging users for information about workflows to get basic functionality from a paid for application.
