C4R Best Practice for Linked Models

I have a Revit project where a team of two is collaborating with C4R. The remainder of the project's teams are not, nor are they posting to A360 but another cloud server.  We have weekly uploads for all models.  Now that my team of two A360 collaborators has C4R up and running we have migrated our collaboration models and all linked models to the A360 cloud and have been working via C4R. 

 

What is the best way to update the linked models from the weekly upload?  It appears remigrating them weekly could be an issue since files would be named the same.  It would also be tedious to migrate each model each week.

I suspect my answer is found here, in this forum string: http://www.revitforum.org/worksharing-revit-server-c4r/28351-c4r-updating-links-2.html

 

I was hoping for a better solution than a weekly linked model migration followed by relinking.

Any progress on this?

 

I am in need of Federated File (linked files) Best Practices to deal with a security issue.  Here is some background.

 

  • Working with C4R sucessfully in Unified File environment for over a year, few projects are Federated File projects, so not a newbie to this new paradigm
  • I need to allow access to a base building for a Tenant Improvement (TI) fit out, but want to limit the external TI team to prevent downloading the entire building and all its proprietry info.  
  • Working with C4R make sense as there is value to the TI team to understand the volumetric limiations of the base building and avoid additional risk associated with archaic processes of CAD and overlay. 
  • TI team wants to be able save their own work - no problem with that but I can't breach the security issue, nor do I want to have the model freely available unless I can control such asscess, as occured with the rest of the AEC team that worked on the base building. 

Does anyone have any best practices to deal with this?

I have not found a solution to my issue, and am unaware of any methods to handle the security issue.

The simplest way is probably to just locally link to the Consultant models, as discussed over on that other thread.

Allan,

Reflecting back at you, are you looking to allow linking of certain models on a project, but no ability to open them directly or download them?
