    Insert linked revit file

    Is it possible to insert a linked revit file in a similar manner to inserting a xref in CAD?

    Sure thing - Go to the "Insert" tab, and pick "Link Revit"

    The below is straight from the help file... :beer:

    1. Open an existing project or start a new project. You will link another project into this project.
    2. Click Insert tabLink panel (Link Revit).
    3. In the Import/Link RVT dialog, select the Revit model to link.
    4. For Positioning, specify the desired option. In most cases, you should select Auto - Origin to Origin. If the current project uses shared coordinates, select Auto - By Shared Coordinates. See Shared Positioning. See Import and Link Options for CAD Formats and Revit Models.
    5. Click Open.


    If you cannot see the linked project in the drawing area, do the following:
    1. In the view properties, for Discipline, select Coordination. This setting ensures that the view displays elements for all disciplines (architectural, structural, mechanical, and electrical).
    2. (Optional) To display the linked project in halftone, for Visibility/Graphics Overrides, click Edit. On the Revit Links tab, for the linked project, select Halftone, and click OK. You can select the linked model in a view and drag, copy, paste, move, and rotate it. You can also monitor grids, levels, and other essential elements in the linked project. See Multi-Discipline Coordination.

      I am glad you copied this part. I get many complaints that people cant see elements in there model or linked file. It's an easy thing to miss.
