What makes the elevation of a link Revit model different from the elevation of the host drawing? Please see attached.

It's probably you have your level set to survey point and the link model is set to project base point or vice versa.

I don't currently have a revit machine right now so instruction may be a little bit off.


1. Click on the level and open the properties dialog box. 

2. On the property dialog box click "Edit Type".

3. Constraints-> Elevation Base -> Change Project Base Point to Survey Point or vice versa.

Both are set to project base point.

I linked the revit file using center-center but when I change to origin-origin this solved the issue.
