    Mechanical Link Puzzle

    Here is a puzzle for you guys. I have been trying to troubleshoot this for over an hour now and cannot seem to gain any ground. We have a mechanical model linked into our architectural and our floor plans are showing the attached "spider web". What is weird is that it only show up in floor plans. There is no evidence of this in RCP, detail views, sections, elevations....

    I know this is definitely coming from the MEP model, because when I select it, the mech link highlights. I have gone through all the categories of VG, both in the host model and custom VG for the linked model. I have opened the MEP model and there is no evidence of this in any of their views. Has anyone seen this before?

    That spider is probably a zone, pointing to all the spaces included in the zone. Use visibility graphics to turn off the HVAC zones category from the custom display settings of the linked file.

      Can you Tab to cycle through the elements in the Linked MEP file and select the offending item? If so you should be able to identify it and hide it.

      It looks like something similar to the "light source" of a light fixture ( it is not that, but I suspect it's something like that--perhaps a symbol of some kind in the MEP file's families. Have you asked the author of the MEP file about this? That may be the fastest way to find out/solve it.

      You can try to open the file in RAC, and see if you can pinpoint it in the live file as well.

        Thanks for the response guys. Alfredo was correct. It was the HVAC Zones that needed to be turned off, but in my haste this morning, I kept adjusting the VG of the incorrect link reference, this is why I did not see any changes.
