The very detailed models I create for clients, I share with them so they can explore them on their own. This is not so that they can get meaningful information from them, as I provide that as part of my course of construction services, but just so they can spend time, on their own, to gain familiarity with their project they couldn’t otherwise gain.
I have one client asking to be kept more “up to date” with their model. My models are fairly large, so I make revisions in a subset of the overall model. Paste in Place (yea!) makes this possible. While back saving one file to 2017 once a week or so isn’t too onerous, I dislike the thought of doing this to several models on a daily basis. I only have so much hard drive space, after all, not to mention time.
I’m thinking of suggesting they get a subscription to SU. My (rather long winded) question is
Shop or Pro?
then I could just give them full time real time access to the files.
