Ok I traced over an Imported cad file (did a partial explode on it) in Revit to create a 3D revit model of the CAD file. Now I was told that I could just use a linked CAD file instead of import, so now I'm trying to line up the linked cad file (deleted the import) with the revit model wall corner at the bottom-left most point in the drawing - simple, right?
You would think so, but for whatever reason revit won't let me snap to endpoints in the linked CAD file, either to move the linked cad geometry to the revit model or the revit model to the linked cad geometry.
Also, when importing the linked cad file in the first place, it won't let you snap to endpoints on the revit file, and it won't let you snap the autocad origin (0,0,0) to the project base point in revit, either. 100% non-intuitive, which is rare for revit but wtf? I realize there is a bunch of tutorials on "shared coordinates" or whatever, but this is just a small building which isn't even a real project its for learning and theres no site plan or any of that, just walls and doors.
Surely there is a way to do something as utterly simple as aligning a linked cad point to the revit model??
