IMPACT OF NESTING REVIT FAMILIES

FILE SIZE

We know nesting can DRAMATICALLY blows out your file size! Did I mention dramatically?

But what I have discovered too is that it also impacts the processing speed by which changes can be made to a family in the project file.

PERFORMANCE IMPACTS – NO MORE THAN 1 LEVEL OF NESTING 

I have found that the deeper you nest families the longer they take to update in the project file.

  •  1 level of nesting – Took almost twice as long to update changes than no nesting.
  • 2 levels of nesting – Took basically three times as long
  • 3 levels of nesting – I didn’t even bother ;-p
