Revit 2024 – ACC Collaborate Pro 2nd Tier Models

SHARE

Traditionally, when using a LAN network to create 2 tier models using Revit, then linking the files into the container file from the 1st tier model is not an issue as the models are attached and easily port. When we use Collaborate Pro, this is no longer the case. One is limited to creating one tier model structures. If one does not, then the links lose their pathing and all the links must be re-pathed manually.

One solution is to create a duplicate tier one model before sharing, and then to bind the 2nd tier models each time the package is created.

The other solution requires bypassing the package sharing process and linking the models in from a common shared folder. This requires the supply chain to use the 2nd tier models at risk. This is NOT best practice and should be avoided if possible. It does not conform to BIM Level 2 compliance.

In conclusion, using a 2-tier model structure will impact an ACC workflow and time must be allocated to binding 2-tier models before sharing in a package/transmittal/copy, or the models must be used at risk.
