Firm finds it strange that I use separate views with their own templates to coordinate?

I’m more looking for affirmation more than anything. Or more templates…

At my firm we have our model organization broken out into 01 working 02 concept 03 coord 04 drafting views 05 cd

Nothing exists in the coordination set for anyone in the firm. However since I’ve been there on all my projects I’ve added new views and template that essentially exist only as a visual aid.

For example, laying out exhaust vents with clearance bubblez. having everything but doors and windows whited out simply because it helps display better.

Workset check view by color coding everything by its workset.

Building numbers by color when In concept and i need to make sure our schedules read.

Viewing templates with all the right settings to export to consultants.

Etc. Etc.

Basically as I’ve gotten to each new task, I create a view template that highlights the related parts and pieces. Dozens of them.

Am I bogging down my model with all these templates and views? I wouldn’t think so as it runs smoothly and I have never gotten major errors or crashes.

Thanks?
