Revit :: Design Options In Linked Files

Aug 26, 2011

I have several architectural models linked into my central file on a project.  For this project, there is an addition to the building that is a design option.  When I look at the linked files, though, I can only see the existing construction.  I also know how to copy/monitor levels, but I want to view the architect's room elevations in my model.  How can I copy the architect's design options and specific views into my model?

Revit :: Linked Models Are Not Displayed In Design Options

Jun 21, 2012

Baffing issue for us:
We have a "core & shell" model linked into a "fit-out" model.  We are working with design options in the "fit-out" model with different design options.
1. In a 3D axo view and working in the main model, we can see the linked "core & shell" file.
2. In the same 3D axo view and working in the primary design option, we can see the linked "core & shell" file.
3. In the same 3D axo view and working in any of the other design option, we CANNOT see the linked "core & shell" file.
The visibility & graphics settings have not been changed.  The worksets settings have not been changed.  We have been unable to overcome this issue.  We are simply flippiing between different design options and the linked model disappears.

Revit :: Underlaying Design Options

Nov 14, 2013

I have four floor plans of varying differences on the same level that have been set up in different views, and organized by 'Design Options'.  It would be very beneficial to be able to overlay these plans (eg. to see the differences, to make relative manipulations) as one can with the 'Underlay' feature can with different levels.
I have thought about placing the views on the same sheet and then activating the view I want to revise, but there is transparency complications . Suggest an alternative for a Design Option Underlay ability?

/still holding out for the ability to organize the listing of 'Design Options'

Revit :: Phasing Or Design Options?

Nov 6, 2011

I have a tenant improvement project: two side by side medical offices.  The owners want to run a joined practice and are building it together, so I'm preparing one set of construction drawings. However for a permit drawings I have to prepare 2 sets of drawings with each office separately-what's the best way of doing it?  Also how should I handle sheets?-should I create 2 series: permit and CD?  I'm not sure how to do it.

Revit :: Way To Organize Design Options

Feb 9, 2012

Is there a way to organize Design Options (alpha numeric) once they have been created.
I work for a large home builder and we will have multiple elevations for each floor plan. The elevations are usually labeled A, B, C, D etc. If an elevation changes labels, say elevation D becomes elevation B, the order will now be A, D, C, B; they cant be reordered into alphabetical order. Which can become confusing. Make sense? Attached is an example of a basic Design Option from one of my houses. In a typical house we can have 50-60 design options, that can change names over years, and they need to remain in an easily read and sourced order.

Revit :: Moving Objects Between Design Options

Aug 10, 2012

I am using Revit Architecture 2013 and I have a few different design options for the mian level of a house I am working on.  I have the North wall of the house in a design option for the living room at the moment.  But I have decided I no longer want that wall in the my living room option, I would like to move it to my kitchen design option so I am able to move a window that is located on that wall.  I cannot seem to find a way to move a wall from one design option to another or have it in both if it is already part of a design option. How I can get this wall and the windows located on it into my kitchen design layout without having things being double counted in the schedules?

Revit :: How To Handle Worksets / Design Options And Phases

Apr 26, 2010

These are three separate question :

1. When I link A revit model (having different worksets) into B revit model, We can control the worksets visibility at the time of linking. We can select any workset to be switched off and it will not be visibility in any view. Can we controll it after linking and on the basis of views, i.e. Can we switch off any single worksets of a link file in a particular view. My understanding is that We can't control worksets of a link file in our main revit model.

2. If A.rvt contains deisgn options. can we link those design options to design options in B.rvt, Can we set the visibility of a view in B.rvt to see desired design option from A.rvt. My understanding is that revit link does not contains design options information.

3. Similar rules applies with Phases. We can't link phases from A.rvt with phases in B.rvt, Also can not controll the visibility of phases of a linked revit model.Seeks experts comments to confirm my belief. What are the nearest possible work around for these issues.

Revit :: Global Visibility Of Linked Files?

Jul 26, 2011

We have multiple linked Revit files from consultants in the same hospital Revit model. How can we turn off all grids and levels in all of the linked files globally. We want to avoid having to do it individually for each view & each linked file.
This project is currently in Revit 2011. If not 2011 is it possible in 2012?

Revit :: Controlling Visual Styles Through Linked Files?

Feb 24, 2012

I am trying to control the visibility or visual style of the model but through the linked arch file. Everything is wireframe or simple black and white lines and I can see all my devices and equipment for the entire length of the building when I only want to see the devices in the room or where the camera is.  It seems when I switch to hidden only my devices change no the linked arch model nor do any of my devices on the other side of the wall go away.  I am sure for some the answer is simple but it is escaping me entirely.  where I can better control the visual styles in my views of not just my own stuff but the other disciplines as well.  Do I have to do anything to the linked files?  Going through the Visibility Graphics Links tab doesnt seem to work either.

Revit :: Unable To Place Components In Linked Files?

Aug 10, 2011

I am having difficulty placing components in my Revit Architecture 2012 model. They are wall hosted (outlets) & floor hosted (floor boxes) components. I have taken the MEP, Base Building, Interiors, and Structural models and linked them into my new file. I have linked them in as overlay. Should I have changed the reference type to attachment?
When I go to place my components I recieve the following notifications from Revit and am unable to click any walls or floors: "Click on Wall to place Instance" (outlets) "Click on Floor to place Instance" (floor boxes). How do I set up these linked files so I can place my families?

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

Illustrator :: Linked PSD Files Not Found When Opening AI Files Via Shared Folder

Mar 17, 2013

My main user folder on the iMac is set to be shared (read/write, including all enclosed files) with my MacBook Pro. The job is a series of one-page InDesign files (they are newspaper advertisements). The IDD files contain a series of Illustrator files with linked PSD files.The idea is that we can both work on the .idd and .ai files in the same folder at the same time.
It's all working fine EXCEPT that whenever an .ai file is opened on the MacBook, Illustrator doesn't know where the linked PSD files are. We can update the link, but when the .ai file is then opened on the iMac and saved, the same thing happens the next time it is opened on the Macbook.
I don't want to embed the PSD files into the .ai files as sometimes I have to modify them and they can be linked to up to 20 .ai files.
G5 iMac OSX 10.7.5 / Macbook Pro OSX 10.8.2 / networked via FireWire cable / file sharing on, laptop user has Administrator status, all files are read/write, permissions include all enclosed files / CS6

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 :: 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.

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 :: 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 :: How To Make Visible Linked Topography

Jul 2, 2012

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.

Revit :: Missing Elements In Linked Models?

Dec 6, 2012

We have a structural model linked into our building model for a project with about 10 people working on it.  Periodically, some users cannot see all of the elements in the linked structural model.  We have tried/checked the following:
Checking Visibility/Graphics (Worksets, Links, Categories)
Checking Reveal Hidden
Opening/Closing Worksets
Unloading and reloading the Links
Opening different Views to find the Elements
We are unable to resolve the problems through the methods above.  Oddly, when a different user opens the view the elements are displayed.  Or, if we override via Visibility/Graphics to the linked model settings the elements are displayed.  In this second sceanario the only way to control the graphics is by changing them in the linked model.
Nethier workaround is efficient or productive.
