It is a folder of objects. Some have been edited to work better with AC13. They load fine to a solo project and the folder is loading into Teamwork projects, but it appears that it has stopped working that way and now I can not even remove it from the BIM server to re-upload it.

I just received an email from GS that suggests the refreshing of BIM Libraries is only possible if everyone in every shared project releases any reserved objects, which I would assume includes doors and and windows; so that means wall layers also need to be released. Only then can the libraries actually be refreshed?!?!?! This seems insane. If this really is necessary, then there should be a report of who has which objects on reservation and the BIM Manager should be able to temporally force control over these parts to do the refresh.

If this is the case, it is almost worse than the old days of making everyone sign out of a project for exclusive access because you would have to force out people in ALL projects on your BIM server. There is no way to tell which project is holding up the refresh.


If anyone else can confirm, test or otherwise corroborate this condition, I would appreciate it. Or suggest a work around that simplifies this.


I really hope this is not the case. Karl, if you are out there, this might become a good Poll for a change in protocol.

...is only possible if everyone in every shared project releases any reserved objects for GDL script editing... I think you have missed this part which makes a fairly substantial difference

This is a problem I have with a Project.

A Library object has been "Reserved" but the User (me!) forgot to release the object before leaving the Project. Now I have an object that is "Reserved" but not Reserved by anyone in particular!

The Library is a folder containing a number of GDL objects which is then used by a number of Projects via the BIM Library Server but as one of the objects is Reserved we can't either Update or Remove the Library till I find a way to un-Reserve it!
