I have a client who decided to build a house on another lot... Plan needs to
be reversed.... plan is complete... Plan is drawn in Revit 6.1
Is there an easy way to accomplish this? I have ADT 3.3 & ADT 2005.
when I reverse the model everything moves... (i.e.drafting components)
Can anyone walk me thru this mine field
For this particular application, I would be most likely to just export the
2D views to DWG and then link them back into a new Revit project to maintain
the associativity of section/callout/detail bubbles and then you will have
to redo the notes...but you should be able to cut and paste from the old
project and just move them around. I think this would be the quickest
solution, not necessarily the ideal one.

Doug: Revit is pretty smart, but it's not that smart. You can mirror a whole building ok, so that the *model* is properly mirrored.
To do this simply draw a ref. plane in a site plan view to be the center of your mirror axis, then go to a 3D axon view, select the whole building, go back to the site plan view and then click Mirror on the toolbar and the pick the ref. plane... bam! mirrored building!
However this probably will screw up your sections, elevations, and callouts, for they all remain in their old locations and pointing their old directions. Mirroring a whole project is not something that's easy in Revit once you've gotten most of the ways into CD's. Heck it's not something that's easy in any CAD software. It's a lot of work to mirror an entire project properly.
Another way to crack this egg would be to export all your detailed callouts as DWG files, then mirror the model, edit your elevations & sections to be proper, them import all your detailed callout views into blank drafting views and then re-reference there locations within the building. That way at least you've benefiting from the Revit model being mirrored, but not having to re-do all those detailed callouts.
