I am currently working on a project where people are creating details in autocad and modeling in revit. Is there anyway to link or import the CAD file and essentially clipped them so that we can move each detail about the sheet and then place the proper elevation note underneath? Thank you.
You can create drafting views and import the DWG file inot a drafting view. (one view per detail) Then the drafting view can be placed on a sheet just like any other view.
But each each detail must be placed, meaning I must seperate every detail into its own DWG file. Is there anyway to accomplish this with just one DWG with all details in place?
Not really, because Drafting Views have no Crop Regions to adjust in order to exclude unwanted details.
I have accomplished this in the past, though, using another method:
Note that the suggestions in steps 2 and 3 may be redundant to a degree, and one does not necessarily have to take both steps.
I am not very sure I understand you well, but if you want to have a dwg detail that you want to repeat it many times on your drawing, let's say it is a window jam detail in horizontal section.
