I'm having issues with  masterplan with multiple linked revit files I need to export to dwg. It exports all links individually for each instance. And the main file doesn't get exported. Does anyone know how o work around this issue?

From the General tab of the Export Setup dialog box, uncheck "Export views on sheets and links as external references"

If you export orthogonal views from Revit, you get flat drawings in AutoCAD.

If you export from a 3D view in Revit, you get a  3D model in AutoCAD.

That I already knew, but when I export a flat view lets say the first floor, Revit exports every linked file from the masterplan seperate. That means if I have 10 linked files in the masterplan I get 10 seperate DWG files and no masterplan with all the links in (like an exref).

I read on the internet you can bind the masterplan file and then export to DWG, this works but then I lose the function of the link files and this took me about 3 hours to bind. But I have my DWG file.

 

But still, is there anybody out there that knows a better way to do this so that I can keep my linked files in the masterplan?
