    Send to back, bring to front.

    I've made a furniture family called "shelf" for retail shelving. It's made of 3D linework. I thought this would work better to lay down the endless amount of shelving that a retail store has as the client would still like to see his shelving and some other details.
    I've imported the architectural CAD file to make the architecture myself as the architect doesn't work on Revit and all I need is a basic wall layout of the store.
    So the walls will be 3D but the interior finishes will be "2D" - the shelving family etc.

    When making the architecture for a building from a CAD import, is there a way to "send to back" the CAD import? My problem is that the "2D" shelving can't be seen through the CAD import so I can't see what shelving I've overlaid with my shelf family and which I haven't.

    Any Ideas?

    Ciao for now.

    Okay, I've cheated.
    My furniture is now offset 50 from the trading floor and I can see it.
    Perhaps I'm taking Revit a little too literally...

      We use symbolic lines (2D) created on a workplane that is adjustable in case we need to place it above an object (ie countertops).

        I'm very new to this, so if this is an ignorant question then please enlighten me!
        Do your 2D lines show up if you use the Revit Architectural file as a linked file to work on, or over in this case? I forsee me doing the same, by the way, as there are many, many counter tops in my projects as a norm.

          Since they are created as a furniture or casework family they will show up, but you may have to change your discipline to Coordination in the view properties. Technically I use RAC...btw....so whether casework or furniture shows up in a MEP model if discipline is mechanical or electrical I do not know.

            Everything from a linked Arch model shows up in RMEP.
            Only detail lines and annotations won't, unless you specifically link a nested Arch view.
            There is also another issue with model lines NOT showing in a linked Arch model if that line is inside a wall, i,e fire rating line.
            As far as linked symbolic and model lines, you should have no problem.
