    Filter Views to Show Only Attached Links

    Is there a way to Filter a view to only show certain attached links?

    I can Tab/Select the attached link & use the Temp Hide to isolate them for example.

    Better yet (sorta)... with a steady hand (and patience) tab/control/select the attached links needed and use Save Selection... Then I suppose I can build some viz Filters outta those...

    I don't wanna have to do that. I just wanna be able to build a filter rule, like for model objects, but RVT Links is not a category to build a filter rule with...

    Ideas?

    Not ideal, but we will put certain links on worksets to restrict which views they appear in.

    Why do either, when you can turn them off in VG:RVT Links?

    That works if you have placeholder links in your template with the appropriate settings. If it isn't something that does (CAD backgrounds, additional revit files) you have to chase through all the templates and turn off the files, which is time consuming and one always seems to be missed, especially if it isn't something you want to see every time you create an untempleted working view. It is a cheat, but it's nice to be able to put a file on a workset and know that it defaults to to not showing up everywhere.

    We will agree to disagree on that one. Worksets dont EVER get set to not visible by default, if i have anything to say about it.

    In my image, Proj Browser> Revit Links example, ...

    Right, I can turn off Mod_214_CENTRAL.rvt via VG, but that'll turn off all the attached WP_....rvt & the FP_...rvt models.

    In some views I was hoping to be able to selectively show the nested/attached Revit models.

    Hmmm...

    Ahhh. We don't ever do Attached, either. Every file is linked in to every file. For full control.

    But I did that in Autocad too...

    Would normaly agree with Aaron about linking in all the models, but if you have so many sub links under the main links I can see why attached could be more managable.
    With attached you could open the main linked model, make a view with only the sub-links you want to see, and then use that linked view in your project...

    I'm only a few days into my new job and the project I was dropped into has been going full tilt already. I'm trying to make due with what's already setup. And it works for the most part. They have a system going that has been working for them.

    We are a design build that specializes in modular construction. So we'll design/doc/build a mod unit (as a Revit project with it's own sheets as a set of shop drawings). Most of the mods in the overall building project share the same (for example) framing floor panel, roof panel, wall panels ... but sometimes certain configs vary depending on where the mod sits in the overall building layout ... The way they have attached links makes sense. When the dust settles a bit we'll reassess some of the workflow before hitting the next project.

    Right now I've been using tab/select to the attached links, Save Selection and then creating filters off of those to control what I wanna see. It works. It's more of a manual process. Once it is done, it is done. There are not too many to contend with so I live with that for now.
