    Linking in revit models - Not alligning

    Hi,

    First query on here and i've done a quick search and can't spot anything similar (surely there has to be?)

    Anyway's I've been given a structural model, architectural models for a building. I have linked these files into my revit model - origin to origin, acquired co-ordinates for my models. However I have been given another architectural model for the apartments within these buildings. So i've done the same process again and linked in the model origin to origin.

    The apartment does not sit within the building as expected. I've briefly spoken to our client who has loaded all of these into navisworks and they line up perfectly fine.

    I have also been into each of the models to check the base / survey points are all the same, which they are.

    What other steps could I take in order to see what has gone wrong? And to hopefully correct it. I haven't personally used navisworks much yet so I haven't double checked to see if the models line up in there, I'm taking the clients word as being right for the moment.

    Thank you for any advice in advance.

    there's been a lot of discussion in this forum about the issues that you are having and I've had them myself in the past. You might start with this thread and also check out Steve Stafford's blog, specifically posts about linking and positioning models. You could also do a simple search for link, positioning which will bring up a lot of past threads on the topic. HTH!

      To confirm the "origin" location unclip the Project Base Point > right-click > Move to Startup location. The startup location is the point used for origin-to-origin.

      Try removing the apartment model and then link it in Auto - By Shared Coordinates
