Stagger your STCs, use High Speed LAN, Face Based Families and more

Fifo - (First in First Out) -Here is an example of what the user sees when attempting to work with others connected to the central file who beat them to the punch.

It is the primary reason for the following recommendations:

  1. High Speed LAN Required - 100mbs is just not enough...standardize on 1GB LAN...Anyone working with black fiber?

  2. Stagger STC for Teams - Ensure that Save to Centrals are done on set intervals at different times for each team member.

  3. Provide Dedicated Server for BIM/Revit Projects

  4. When using multiple disciplines in a single model, ensure that hosted families are used only where necessary...otherwise Face based is the choice du jour.
