I'm trying to import one Revit file into another. When I try to link the file I get a dialogue box that says:
"The import geometry will not be visible in the view using current settings. The Oringin of the import will be centered on the origin of the model instead. You can view the import in any view where its geometry is within the extents."
For this it sounds like the imported model is way off to the side or way up high or low but even in a view that I increase the extents to maximum i can't see the object.
I've tried "center to centre" and "origin to origin"
I've check in the visual graphic and can't see anything turned off.
The file i am imported ia a structural model export from Tekla that I imported into a Revit and cleaned up. Everything looks fine when i open the file on it's own.
set the scale so it is the same. Be sure that the file you are trying to import does not have the file you are in linked back to it. In autocad it is called a circular reference, i am not sure what they call it in the BIM world. also be sure that the units are configured the same, inch to inch not inch to meter.
Funny thing is...if i bring my architectural model into the structural model...the reverse...it works fine and the building are overlaping in the same area.
Must be something to do with the visual graphics, cut planes.
Any other thoughts from anyone.
OK...got it...for some reason structural did all their work using "Phase 3". Not sure why they are "Phasing" options this project. I'll have to get them to switch it or switch it each time they send me a new file.
There is 3 hours of my life I will never get back.
Hope this saves someone else some time.
