In solo mode, why should I add libraries from a BIM Server? Shouldn’t I just use linked libraries?
BIM Server Libraries can be added to solo projects as well as to teamwork projects, as long as the user has a valid user name and password enabling access to the server. The advantage of using server libraries over linked libraries is that whenever a company library is updated on the BIM Server, this update is carried out for all users, both solo and teamwork.
* Note that using a BIM Server Library in solo mode does not mean that you will have long download periods every time you open a project using that library. A local library cache will be created on your machine, and only changes must be sent back and forth to the BIM Server – similar to the way satellite libraries worked in previous ARCHICAD versions.
