We are already doing a version of that because of difficulty in getting the coordinate system coming out of the Revit IFCs.
Unfortunately the clean file that we are putting the Revit IFC into is barely navigable on its own and I'm too afraid to see what it does speed wise once I module it into our Teamwork project.
To give you an idea of the sizes we are talking about.
Teamwork file saved to a solo file as is = 140Mb
Solo file once all Sections, Elevations, Details and Layouts removed (ie model data only) = 5Mb
Clean ArchiCAD file with only the Revit IFC imported (no 2D data etc.) = 21Mb
If the structural model data alone is 4x the size of our architectural data we are going to have to start taking a lot of long coffee breaks while we wait for the sections to rebuild. (haven't had to do that since V11)
