    Is there a way to "xclip" a linked model?

    I simply want to show only yard equipment and not the interior equipment, but they're all the same category. Can I xclip it somehow?

    TIA

    masking region? Or select the items you don't want to see and right click Hide/Elements? There is no XClip in Revit

      Think beyond the OOTB categories, and more about the parameters that lie within them, or indeed, parameters you might add.

      If you create your own parameter field, you could then assign to element types (or even instances) "YARD" and "INTERIOR" - then use view based filters to control which ones you see, and which ones you don't.

      Doing it this way will saves editing the masking region through the course of the project (as the areas may require) and the elements assigned to "hide in view" (as they come and go)

      Sorry Dave, didn't mean to stamp on your suggestions there.

        Setup a filter for certain parameters in the families. You might need to sort out which parameters apply for the different families (like Snowwy suggested, a custom Interior / Exterior parameter would be best).

        I wouldn't go with the Masking Region, that's way to much coordination through the project.

        But Selection by crossing window over entire interior area > Filter > All but Equipment > Right click > Hide element in View works pretty fast too.

          no worries, I'm used to it I still haven't gotten my head around filters but can see that they have many useful purposes...

            Thanks for the input everyone. I'll see about adding a parameter to the electrical equipment. Good idea
