I am working on sprinkler design with revit 2013.
Fire sprinkler system is getting slow and slow as I add more sprinklers.
I tried solve this problem with breaking sprinkler system worksets into seperate workset.
Or with managing views, but it didn't work at all.
Somehow I came to realize that I have 1047 sprinklers in a same system name and this may be culprit of all the problem
since the sprinklers in different system name does not cause any problem.
Is there anyone who know how to assign different system names to current system name?
Have you checked your warning messages? I suspect you have thousands of "unable to calculate" messages. I doubt you are using Revit to perform hydraulic calculations. You can turn off calculations in piping systems now. This can be a big boost in big models.
Yes, I checked the warning messages. Most of the warning messages are regarding unconnected sprinkler heads or fittings, but I don't see any errors from calculation. Plus, I had already turned off the calculations in piping system and deleted pressure drop and flow in sprinkler family.
