- Work in wireframe not hidden modes. You can use a very selective view template to set all your views back to hidden before plotting.
- Only open the worksets you need on open.
- Reload latest before you sync.
- Purge the crap out of all your linked Revit files.
- Compact your Revit files once a week.
- If you have a lot of people accessing the model at the same time, use scheduled times for syncing to prevent database collisions.
- The slowest machine accessing the central brings the whole lot down.
- Keep open views to a minimum. Just click close hidden every 5 minutes or so.
- Don't make or use over the top families that are over-modeled.
- Have only a generic drafting view open during saves and syncs.
- Check and clear warnings.
- Keep complex sketch-based items to a minimum.
- Break your model into smaller models and link.
- Restart Revit every 4 hours.
- Work in dependent views instead of the overall view.
- Detach from central before printing.
