We are just starting a new project in Revit MEP 2012. The architect has 8 different models; one for each of the buildings and one for the site. We will have a transformer on the site supplying power to all of the buildings. We'd like to follow the architect's file structure by using an electrical model for each builing and one for the site.
Does anyone know of a way to circuit all of the panels in the linked building models to the transformer on the site. We tried using copy/monitor and with the copy comand we were able to link the panels to the transformer, but the panels didn't carry their loads from their original revit file.
Solved! Go to Solution.
There is no way to directly link information between a Project and it's Linked Revit Models. To my knowledge, you'll be best off creating a "Proxy Load" Electrical Equipment Family to simulate the loads from the links, which will have to be manually entered. This family would be nothing more that a block with an Electrical Connector and linked parameters for manual load entry.
Try searching this forum for other possible solutions others may have come up with...

Yeah. That's we normally do around here.
You can either host that family onto the mechanical equipment or place it somewhere nearby.
