    not the same orientation angle between linked model section and section in main model?
    off by 0.0001░ does that...

    I don't understand what any of the tips mean. Can some one pls explain?

    I don't understand what any of the tips mean. Can some one pls explain what is the difference between an object, element and category? And how do I go down the list to check which of these things are the problem? For example if "The object or category is temporarily hidden" then how do I know that and solve it?

    Checklist: 33 steps to being able to 'find stuff'
    Check to see if:
    1. The object or category is temporarily hidden
    2. The object or category is hidden in the view
    3. The object is being obscured by another element
    4. The object's category or subcategory is hidden in the view
    5. The object is outside the view's view range
    6. The view's far clip depth is not sufficient to show the object
    7. The object resides on a work set that is not loaded within the project
    8. The object resides on a work set that is not visible in the view
    9. The object resides on a work set that is not loaded in a linked file
    10. The object resides on a work set that is not visible in a linked file
    11. The object resides within a group (detail model) and it has been excluded from the group
    12. The object is part of a design option that is not visible in the view
    13. The object is part of a linked file that is not visible in the view
    14. The object has one or more of its edges overridden to display as '<Invisible lines>'
    15. The object is a family and none of its geometry is set to be visible in the view type
    16. The object is a family and none of its geometry is set to be visible at the view's detail level
    17. The object is set to not be visible at the category's detail level
    18. The element has been placed outside the view's crop region (visible extents)
    19. The element is an annotation object and does not reside entirely within the annotation crop region
    20. The object's phase settings or the view's phase settings prevent the object from displaying in the view
    21. The view's discipline is prohibiting the visibility of the object
    22. The object is affected by a filter applied to the view
    23. The object is subject to an element override, set to background color
    24. The object is subject to a category override, set to background color
    25. The object style is set to background color
    26. The object is constrained to a scope boxes that is not visible in the view
    27. The extents of the object itself don't permit it to be seen
    28. The object is a mass, and 'Show Mass' is turned off
    29. The object's host view has been deleted (area boundaries)
    30. The view's scale is prohibiting the object's visibility
    31. The object is a linked instance with coordinates too great for Revit to handle
    32. The user has incorrectly identified the link instance to which the element belongs
    33. The object is in a link that is not in its correct position

    what is your Revit level of experience? If you are a beginner I would suggest a basic Revit use book or even to take a beginning Revit class somewhere. Lacking any of that your questions can be answered easily by Googling the question(s).

    The way that you use the list is to start at the top and check each condition one at a time. After you gain Revit experience you can basically blow through the list mentally to get where you need to be.

    sometimes you have to reload a link to make it visible...happens in BIM360 once and a while

    I hit this threat searching for a visibility problem with a CAD file, which was inserted( not linked ) into a REVIT file. This REVIt file is now linked in my current file .
    And....the inserted CAD content is only visible, when I hit the light bulb.
    I can't find any way yet to unhide the inserted CAD file in my REVIT link

    So I have to give away this nut to crack for someone else with more knowledge.
    I was going through that list of options about visibility ...no success so far.

    Anyone any idea? ( the 35 options) why stuff doesn't show up don't mention this case..( at least I am not aware of it)

    thanks for your help guys.

    Go to Visibility/Graphic Overrides for a view, under Revit Links tab > Display Settings > choose 'By linked view' or 'Custom' and select a view from a linked project where CAD is visible, , under 'Import Categories' choose 'By linked view' or
    choose 'Custom', under 'Import Categories' choose 'Custom', check a CAD to be visible.
