Revit :: Cut Profile Not Working With Linked Views?

Aug 11, 2013

I thought that Cut Profile would be working with linked models (with By Linked View) by now. I know it didn't work a few years ago, but we've just tried it in 2014 and it still isn't correctly displaying views that have had the Cut Profile tool used on them when linked into another file (using By Linked View).

Revit :: Linked CAD Not Showing In Other Views?

Jul 18, 2011

I linked in a dwg floor plan and it shows on the first floor but not in the 2nd floor or any others views. I thought as long as you left "current view only" in the Link CAD Dialog box unchecked it should show in all views.

Revit :: Linked Views - Section Boxes Not Displaying

Jul 24, 2013

I have a project with multiple revit files linked in to it. Some of the linked 3D views contain section boxes that section off each floor of the building. (3D-Level 1, 3D-Level 2, etc.)
When I link one of the 3D views and enable section boxes (via the Extents->Section Box and via Overrides -> Links -> Display Settings -> Annotation), a section box will appear, but it is not the same size as the one in the linked file.. which makes my drawing show all of the floors instead of just Level 1. I am able to resize the box manually so I assume it is a local one.
Is there something I forgot to toggle? If not, is there an easy way to figure out the elevation/dimensions of selection boxes in the linked file so I can transfer the data to the local section boxes?

Revit :: Option To Set Up What Linked View Would Be Set When Creating / Duplicating Views

Aug 15, 2013

I was curious if there was an option to set up what linked view would be set when creating and duplicating views. Its a little time staking when you have 6-7 linked files and need to make 20-30 elevations/sections. I was thinking there would be a way to setup the views so they're ready to go when you create them.

Revit :: How To Get Input To Utilizing Views Created In A Linked Project File

Sep 12, 2012

I have thought about this and want to get input on a best approach to utilizing Views created in a linked Revit project file. One need is to create a Callout within the current Revit project and reference a view from another linked project. This is a common need in many of our projects

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Adding Profile To Existing Profile Views

May 10, 2013

I have 3 profiles that I've superimposed together.  Then I created sheets using the superimposed profile.  I used the wizard and had Civil 3d do it for me (2012).  Now I have to add a 4th profile to the mix and get it to show in my profile views that have already been cut.  The data is shortcut into the drawing with my cut profiles views.  How do I get it to be in the cut profile views without re cutting everything?

Revit :: Make Transparency Of Glass-materials Visible In Views And Section-views

Jan 12, 2013

We would like to make the transparency of glass-materials visible in views and section-views by using the "realistic style". During a 3d-view our glass-material looks like transparent. Isn't it possible for REVIT to display the transparency of materials in views ?

The workaround to hide "glass" by using "overriding visibility" is not possible for us because some of our families and project families are using glass-materials inside (Showcases f.e.).

Revit :: Move Cursor Across Various Views Doubles Views

Nov 19, 2012

Since the end of Aug. 2012 I've been making families for a manufacturer. I left Friday evening with good families. This morning I am finding all the families I checked with a problem.
When I move the cursor across the various views it doubles the views. Rolling the mouse wheel one click either way to zoom in or out cleans the view but on the next time the cursor goes across the view it doubles it again. Now there are 4 views overlapping each other. The next time it is possibly 8, and so on. It is difficult to count them because they are overlapping but it looks like they are doubling each time.
The software is Revit Architecture 2011 and the computer is a Dell Precision T3500.Are the families corrupted or is it the computer?  Is there a toggle I hit that I shouldn't have?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Dynamically Linked Vertically Offset Design Profile

Dec 6, 2012

I have a design profile and now I want to create one that's linked to it but have it 0.5m lower than the profile I just laid out. Is there a way to do this? I'd like to keep them dynamically linked so when i manipulate the 1st profile it will drop the 0.5m lower profile. In theory this would be a great feature to have in CIvil 3D.

At this point I will likely need to copy the profile and drop it 0.5m in elevation with edit geometry. Not ideal considering when I adjust the main profile I'll need to redo that process to show the profile 0.5m lower than my main design profile. (used as a side slope target).

Revit :: Linked CAD Linework

Oct 22, 2013

I am having trouble with the linework reading properly. I link a CAD dwg. to my revit model and once its in my model the linework doesnt read as it does in autocad. I have dashed or hidden lines in my CAD plan and once I link it in revit they show up as solid. I am thinking it has something to do with the LTscale in autocad?

Revit :: Linked DWG Disappears

Jan 10, 2012

Having issue with linked DWG which disappears arbitrarily? It is still linked and the visibility of Imported categories is set to ON, but DWG is not visible in a view. When we were linking it we set Current view only (so we can not see this DWG in other view than in the particular one).The solution is to remove DWG and link it again..What may cause it is that we copied the DWG into all levels because it contains floorplans of all levels. In every level we moved the DWG into correct position and it is working for a while. We did not find a moment when it disappears .

Revit :: Linked CAD Keeps Rotating

Jun 8, 2012

I'm having a real issue with Revit that I can't get my head around or find documentation on.
I have a model setup and linked a DWG file. The DWG is a topo survey drawn in real co-ordinates.  The DWG is linked center to center then then I moved and rotated it to suit the orientation of my new building in Project North. See image 01.
I've then aquaired the co-ordinates from the DWG.
I've change to True North and rotated the view. See image 02
All seems to be OK. If I detach and re-attach this DWG using the shared co-ordinated it ends up in the correct place so I've started work on my model. 
However, I've noticed that when I close and re-open my model or force ther DWG to reload it shifts position and rotates so I have to detach and reattach. See image 03

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Network Profile Views

Mar 12, 2012

I am using C3D 2012.

I have a storm water pipe network and a sanitary pipe network. In the profile view I am displaying both networks. My question is in the profile view the storm pipes are in "front/foreground" of the sanitary pipes. Is there a way to "trim" out the sanitary pipe profile lines where they pass behind the storm sewer.

Kind of like a display order so looking at the profile I can tell which pipe and in foreground and which are in the back ground.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Projecting Objects To Profile Views

Apr 9, 2012

I have been using feature lines along buried utility locations to project these objects to section views. It works great. I created label styles, and It pops a vertical label on the section view that points toward the existing ground. I tried to use the same feature lines to project objects to profile views, and get very strange results. I do not get an option to select a label style, that field is blank, and on the profile view there is not a point where the alignment and the feature line crossed, but a line drawn all over the general area of the utility location. I have attached pdf examples of a sucessful section view and an unsuccessful profile view. I manually added the "EXISTING WATER" label so that it's easy to locate the line representing the water line.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Plan Production Profile Views

Dec 14, 2013

I am trying to use the plan production feature and I've got it working pretty well except when it creates the profile view, it cuts off the data band and also makes the viewport at the very top edge of the profile, so in the viewport I can't see the data band or the top edge of the profile view.

What setting am I missing to make it show the data band?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Views In Base Maps

Dec 8, 2012

What are some workflows people are using for creating P&P sheets?

I have a project that is 8 miles long so I created all the profile views (18) in one base map drawing using the plan production tool and then they are xrefed into my individual sheets.

I'm finding that doing a save or regen take approx. 30 seconds each time. That seems unusually slow to me.

I asked my reseller about it, and their comment was "We wouldn't recommend that many profile views in one drawing".

I assumed (maybe falsely) that if the plan production tool allowed it, then it should work.

Revit :: Controlling Linked Layers

Dec 22, 2013

Using Revit 2014, I link in a dwg file.  I open a view and using V/G overides for Imported Categories, I turn off the Acad layers I don't want to see.  Then the next time my dwg file is updated, the V/G will remain the same and I won't have to reset the layer views. Now I duplicate this view for additional views I need in my project.  But I need to apply a different View Template to each view.  This destroys the original V/G settings that I had set up for the dwg file.Is there a way to set up my linked file so that it retains the layer on/off settings through each update and lock it.  Then I can apply different View Templates to introduce other characteristics without altering the desired layer settings.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Split Profile Views And OSNAP Cause Crash

Mar 29, 2010

I've been trying to use the automated plan & profile production tools with 2010, but haven't quite gotten the final product I wanted so I've resorted to manually setting up my own "viewframes" to align my viewports with. However, when I snap to either the top right of my profile view or the bottom right of my profile view, Civil 3d automatically crashes. This makes creating closed rectangular polylines to act as "viewframes" around my profile view very frustrating since at some point or another I'll forget to turn osnap off and blam!, civil3d is gone. It only happens with split profile views and it only seems to happen at the right side of the profile. It doesn't seem to happen at splits. It has happened in 2 different drawings. It has happened with different profile view styles.

Update: It only happens when Node is enabled in OSNAP so I can Node and be fine, at least until the next day I forget to disable Node while doing something near a profile.

Revit :: User Keynote In Linked Model

Oct 26, 2011

I have a Revit model (A) being linked into another Revit Model (B). In model B I set the VG of the linked model A to By Linked View. Now, when I do this I see all my Element Keynotes, but non of my User Keynotes show. 

Things tested:
Created models C and D to try in fresh environment - All Keynotes show up
Created model E and linked A into it - User Keynotes do not show up
Overwrote the Keynote Family in A and retested - User Keynotes do not show up
So this means there is some problem in Model A that it is not pushing the User Keynotes through when linked.

Revit :: View Sheets From A Linked Model?

Dec 18, 2012

I have created a big and complex Revit model, in Revit 2013. It's now time for me to print the sheets - I want them in PDF and DWF. But I really have some problems doing that. When I print to PDF it takes about 20 minutes for it to print 1 drawing - and it will not be complete - elements are missing compared to the original view. Often Revit stops working - and it's the same story when I try to save a DWF.
I think the reason why I have the problem is because of the complexity of the building's geometry. Have modeled it by importing SAT. files from Rhino - to create the form. The result is great but the file is now 370 Mb. I'm trying to link the model in to a new Revit project to minimize the file, and hopefully get the drawings printed in PDF and DWF. In the the new project I can't see the sheets from the linked file though.
Is there a way to link the sheets to another procjet?

Revit :: How To Make Visible Linked Topography

Revit 2012 .I have a topo file linked to the main building file.I am trying to render a 3d exterior view of the building (new construction ).I see the linked topography in black lines in my elevations.but not in the 3d view.
The question/ problem unsolved is how to get the site/ ground to be visible as per the linked topography in the 3d view of the main file . All I see is the building in the air , with a very light greyed site in a block form. I would like to see the site in earth: soil material  for me to render the exterior view.
