I don't think that there is a good way to accomplish that without exporting and then importing a DWG.
Are you using the actual Legends or a Drafting View? Can you please elaborate on what you're trying to do? There may be a better way to go about it.
I have some details drawn in 3D and i want to use them on multiple sheets.
Now im exporting the 3D views to Autocad and then imort them back to revit on a legend.
If you export 3D Views into AutoCAD and import them into a Legend, you won't be able to see the 3D image. Revit is "smart" enough to know the orientation of the import and it will display as Top View only in the Legend.
If you wish to show a 3D View on multiple Sheets, you may have to create a Dependent View for individual placement on each Sheet.
I know, i just want to show the detail on multiple sheets. 2D would be enough.
The thing is, that i have all components in 3D plus its views. I cant use those viewd every time on 100 sheets without duplicating them. That is why im using a legend. To get them on a legend i have to export the detail first to 2D autocad.
I have not found a way to do that. Any form of import maintains the orientation, hence, does not appear 3D in Legend. The only method I can see at the moment would be to trace the 3D View with Detail Lines, and then Copy/Paste them into the Legend View. Not a good solution...
I had this need as well. Similar to CADastrophe I had the idea of tracing a 3D view, but I found a way that fit my needs even better (allowing for exact perspective). Does this get you what you're after?
Hope that helps
