    Linked Model Issue??

    ok, this is a new one on me and I've been :banghead: all day trying to figure this out. I have a new project that consists of two office buildings, lets call them A and B. I downloaded the Architectural Revit models which are OB A, OB B, and OB X. OB X is linked into both models for A and B. Open the model for A and there's building A. Open the model for B and there's building B. Open the model called X that is linked into both A and B models and it contains only building B. The model for building A has to be in there but I cannot figure out why it isn't visible. I've checked V/G, worksets, design options, Reveal Hidden Items...nothing. There are scope boxes for each building but the one for building A is empty. I cannot think of anything else to try. Any ideas?? I could share the models on Sharefile if that would help anyone. The A and B models are only around 1.5MB as they are essentially empty and the X model is 56MB.

    In building OB X - you have checked Manage Links to make sure it is actually linked still?

      ?? OB X (in theory) has no links that would be turned on or off. It contains building geometry.

        I took that to mean you don't see A and want to...

        Perhaps restate what you're after...I thought I understood.

        Did you check whether the linked files are Attached or Relative links?

          I do want to see A but it is not a link in X, at least it's not listed in Manage Links. And there is no building A model on the sidelines hiding out. The only file that is linked into the building A model is X and when viewing the building A model there is a building A visible. Where the heck it comes from I have no idea because it is not visible in X

            If A is not listed in Manage Links then it isn't showing up because it isn't linked into X.

              then, pray tell, how the heck is it showing up in the model for Bldg A?? There are no building A and building B models that are linked into model X. Model X contains the original modeled geometry for building B but not for building A (at least it's not visible somehow) and yet the geometry contained in model X is visible in model A.

                Something is getting lost in translation, I think you've just contradicted your original post.

                Can you post the models at Box or Dropbox? I'll take a hands-on look after I drop my daughter off for soccer...that work?

                  Are the buildings "identical"? is it possible that you're looking at an attempt at generating (2) buildings' worth of drawings from one model? (Model X is the "identical" geometry, Model A is the doc model for OB A, Model B is the doc model for OB B)

                    anyone interested in looking at the models involved in this thread PM me and I'll give you a link to them in Sharefile. My model is called MG_OB2.rvt and there are two other files that are linked into that model. Again, if you open the linked model called MenloConstitution_OBX_ARCH.rvt it contains only the building OB3 (B) but if you open my model with that file linked then OB2 linked geometry is visible. Where does OB2 hide in the link?
