Good stuff, Im actually convinced its more to do with the windows XP OS, we will soon be moving to win.7 so perhaps thiswill help.

 

Its so random I don't think I can recreate it, but the next time it crashes I will send you the drawing & the error data.

 

Thanks for looking into it.

 

Regards,

 

Brian.

Martin another crash.

 

This time I was only tabbing between 6 open files. Never got round to doing any work.

 

Before this I did have MEP & REVIT MEP open doing a wee 3d manhole detail, but these were closed. PC did seem to be running slowly after this though?

 

Hope this is of some use.

 

I think my windows had just had enough tbh.

 

Cheers.

Hi Brian- I think this will be helpful.  I've sent some data to the dev team to dig into.

Finding the Families in Revit much easier to edit than AutoCAD MV parts martin.

 

MV parts could be improved greatly if you could edit them after they where created like families can be edited.

 

Just some further thoughts after recent experiences.

 

How was AU?

If you part is parametric you can easily open it using the content builder and make changes.  If your part is block based you can open the individual blocks and make your edits there by opening up the dwg found in the part catalog.

 

Content Builder is definately not on par with the family editor.  If autodesk could improve content builder to act like the family editor I think that more people would create their own parts.
