    Linking CAD

    I posted this in Revit MEP but think it is more suitable here. Im new to Revit and trying to get all figured out. I am having a problem with my CAD links. I have used the Mechanical Template and have brought in 4 Links and made sure that it did not have the current view box selected so it would show in all views and could control them through the Visibility Graphics per view. When i go to Level 2 the i am only seeing one of these links so i have removed one of the ones that i need to see in this view and tried to reload it and i get a message stating it is not visible in this view but when i go to Level 1 it shows there. Could someone please help me with this issue that i am having.

    That has to do with your view range. The dwg's will be added to a level and if the bottom view range of the above level does not reach to the level below, you will not see it. When you turn the 'Current view only' off that means you CAN see it in all views, not that you WILL see them all the time. When off the dwg behaves like model lines, you only see them if they are within the view range.

      I can put the DWG in at Level 2 and it still will not show up. I will get a message that states it is not visible in this view.

        if you switch to wireframe can you see it? if so, select the link and change the display order to Foreground in the properties palette.

          No i can not all i can see is the one that originally could see but none of the others that could not see. I have since added a couple more into the file and could see some of them but not all of them.

            Did you add the other dwg's all into the same view, or in different view?
            I you add more, do they all show up in a 3D view?

              Ive tried both ways different views and same view. Yes they all show up in 3D.

                Three thoughts off the bat: Does level 2 have a crop region that is a different area than Level 1? Are imported categories turned on in the Level 2 view? Is the view depth of Level 2 set to Unlimited?

                  OK, so we have established that they do come into your project and show up without weird scaling or in a weird location.
                  I would now check the things taylor.odell suggests.

                    I checked the crop regions and it is all good. All imported Categories are turned on. And View Depth set to unlimited not sure what that means.
