Hello there,

 

I bet this is a simple solution, but we have the structural Model being linked into our model.  Whenever we cut a section, view a floor plan we see thier levels, grids and annotations.  Is ther a way to only show structural categories and turn off all other categories for EVERY view?  

 

I thought it may be a filter, but I can't seem to get the filter to allow me to edit actual Revit link categories.  Any ideas?

 

It will help us tremendously!

 

Thanks,

Lorne

We use view templates to control all views that are multiple.  Exterior elevations, floor plans, detail callout plans, interior elevations, wall sections.  All of those are assigned a view template where we control the linked models as well as our model.  The only views that don't have assigned templates are one of a kind views.

 

It takes discipline to do this but the rewards are multiple.  Just before printing, we highlight ever sheet in the set - right click and pick "apply DEFAULT view template to views" and every view is set to what we expect.

Visibilty/Graphics, Revit Links tab, then change the display setting for the structural link. Then you can make a new view template to quickly apply those setings to your other views.

Yes I am aware of the view templates.  I have trid to implement this in our office but every project once it starts, the templates end up custom and things will be turned off if we apply them again.   It's frusterating but I don't know if we'll get to that point any time soon.

 

Also, I have been going to each view through VV and changing it manually.  I just didn't know if we can do a filter instead of a view template?

 

Thanks,

Lorne

The fact that you can't get your users to be responsible will cause you some real grief.... I hope it doesn't cost you much in errors and ommissions...

 

I WOULD NOT DO THIS but As TKennedy said,  Setup a template that controls nothing but this linked file and apply that to all views.

I forgot to add this and WWHub kinda brought it up, but in the new view template you can un-check everything but "V/G Overrides RVT Links". Then when you apply the view template it will not change anything but the VG settings for the linked files.
