Link Multiple files at one time with same shared coordinates

Link Multiple files at one time with same shared coordinates

Dear Autodesk,

 

Please allow us to add multiple links at one time, this is when links share the same shared coordinates system or insertion point.

 

We work on large scale projects with sometime 35-70 links, the files are nested with shared coordinates, When creating master plans or nesting the consultants files it would be fantastic if I could link in one go rather than having to link one at a time.

 

Even if the links needed to be moved to the correct internal location, linking multiple would save us time.

 

Thanks, and I hope others would love this function too!

 Hi MagedAhmad, I couldn't find a download button on the site you provided, only subscription options. I would really like to try this as it looks like it will do the function we are looking for.

 

Cheers

Yes I also want this.  Would be so nice if we could tell it to load multiple links in the Manage Links screen.  I have to load 40 links into this file.  Would also be nice if you could take it step further and add multiple files with ALL or CERTAIN Worksets turned off.

Hi All, we need an embedded tool in Revit to let us able to batch linking all needed models at once , linking all by different options (origin to origin or by shared coordinates).

The tool can link models when placed in folders or subfolders.

this tool to be used with cloud collaborated models as well.

This tool will save a lot of time to link models individually.

Batch link CAD files is important for improving workflow efficiency and project management in architectural and engineering practices. Many projects involve linking multiple CAD files (such as architectural plans, MEP layouts, and structural drawings) into Revit for coordination and reference.

Batch linking would streamline the initial setup phase by allowing users to link multiple CAD files in one operation, saving time and reducing repetitive tasks. This capability facilitates better collaboration among multidisciplinary teams, ensuring all stakeholders have access to the latest information for smoother coordination
