Joining walls between host model and linked model

Walls in the host model do not join with walls from linked models, so they appear as the following picture

Joining walls to linked model.PNG,

 

what is the workout for this?

Thanks.

Not much you can do about it except for using the Linework tool to make the end of the walls in the hos model thinner.

I have the exterior skin in a linked file along with the core, so there is a core and shell model, and the architectural plans model,

Would "copy/monitor" the exterior walls from the the core and shell model to the host model to join walls be a good idea?

Or is it too much?

Thank you...

You can copy/monitor the walls over and clean them up.  I don't like to have duplication of geometry in my model so I wouldn't do that just to fix some graphical imperfection.  If it is that important to you so it's up to you.

Omar,

 

No you can't . AFAIK there is no possibility to join between your model and the link.

The alternate workflow we may suggest (and we use) are:

 

1)  (Less reccomended )  Leave an empty area wherever you have structural members. This may work, but it will bring you many clashes.

 

2)  (Better)  Draw the walls "through" the structural members. When the structural model is ready, Link -- Bind it in your model and then "Join" manually.

     It may be a tedious task but the result works.

 

Regards, Dan

@Anonymous -I am with @ToanDN on this. Use linework / invisible lines / masking regions / edit profile to make the view look correct. I would not go overboard in making the model correct with 3D geometry, and you really don't want to have duplicate geometry to (possibly) bog your model down.

I use the geometry from the linked Revit files and merged them into the host file by using the bind link option - where you select the Linked File> Modify> Bind Link. The Linked File will now become a Group inside the host file, ungroup the elements, so they can be modified and integrated into the host file.
