Linked CAD Not showing in other views

Hello D-Group Members,

 

I am new to revit and just finished some ATC classes. I am stumped and need guidance. I linked in a dwg floor plan and it shows on the first floor but not in the 2nd floor or any others views. I thought as long as you left "current view only" in the Link CAD Dialog box unchecked it should show in all views. Thank you in advance for any replies

Alan,

 

I figured it out. When I use the "LINK CAD" command I brought the drawing in to the first floor / Level 1. The reason I could not see the dwg I brought into my drawing in any other view was because under the properties tab for the other levels the "underlay" drop down was set to level 3. I just needed to change the "underlay" to level 1, and there she is.

 

Thanks for the response,

NY Mech

If you insert the DWG into a plan view it should show up on all plan views, assuming that it’s visible, within the crops, not hidden, etc. and current view only is unchecked.

 

Thanks for posting.
